LOw time critical BOrder Surveillance

Objective

The LOBOS project involves a consortium of fourteen partners including large companies, SMEs and institutional entities from height European countries.
LOBOS aims at testing the low time critical scenarios of the CONOPS in order to deliver a draft of specifications for a GMES operational border surveillance support service in 2014.
Thus LOBOS will implement an initial pre-operational service three months after the contract kick-off, which will be evaluated and refined through a phased development all along the project. Three successive upgraded versions of the service will be run during the two years project time period. This pre-operational service is designed to be activated by FRONTEX, through EUSC or EMSA over any geographical location. Around 60 activations using more than 450 satellites images and ancillary data are foreseen.
LOBOS will put emphasis on modelling, statistics and analysis, relying on satellite imagery but also on Open Source Intelligence and other environmental informations (meteorology, sea currents) to produce CONOPS products.
In the LOBOS approach, the R&D outcome aims at improving the services performance along its phased implementation, in terms of content, cost (automation) and delivery time capabilities. It will not prevent the delivery of the core pre-operational service.
The progression of the project will be permanently available on a dedicated web site. Moreover, the results of the project will be presented during a workshop in Warsaw in conjunction with the annual European Border Guards day in May 2014.
