Development of Unmanned Semi-fixed Sea Platforms for Maritime Surveillance


Project Overview

The project “Development of Unmanned Semi-fixed Sea Platforms for Maritime Surveillance” (USSPS) will develop the backbone of an advance Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Combat Systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (C5ISTAR) federated system of systems. USSPS will integrate legacy assets and systems with innovative solutions, aiming to improve maritime surveillance capabilities, reduce high value asset utilization and mission related costs, and provide cross-domain persistent and permanent maritime situational awareness. The project will develop an unmanned highly autonomous, energy efficient and miniaturized oil rig technology-based platform capable to integrate a wide range of air, surface and underwater sensors. The platforms will enable deployment in any geographical region, including all types of sea-beds and deep-sea regions, and operation under adverse environmental conditions.
