The I2C integration project proposes for 2015 a new generation of innovative sea border surveillance system implementing key existing and in development capacities to track all vessel movements to early identify and report on threats associated to detected suspicious events. These key capacities are: *Shore based sensors platform grouping new sensor technologies; long range HFSW radar, FMCW radar to track small crafts (both prototypes are in experimentations), AIS stations and conventional coastal radar. This platform performs permanent all weather traffic surveillance over wide maritime zone up to 200 nautical miles. *Deployable sensors platforms to perform local node observation campaigns to complete shore based surveillance. Four equipped platforms are deployed; aircraft and vessel patrols, USV and Zeppelin, which offers absolute quiet flight with no vibration for high resolution observation quality and a payload of 2 tons for sensors and communication devices. *Capacity for common operational traffic picture to correlate vessels tracks from shore based and deployable sensors plots. *Capacity for common intelligent operational traffic picture appending to vessel tracks information on performed activities, flags, sea state conditions, regulations, etc. *Capacity to detect abnormal vessel behaviours and issue automatically alarms to operator for validation. Detection is based on multi-parameters rules and detection engines. *Capacity to understand suspicious event, early identify threat and issue periodically interpretation files to authorities for decision. *Capacity to transfer useful data sets through communication network based on Distributed Systems intercommunication Protocol (DSiP) and VSAT/Digital Video Broadcast technologies. The consortium is restricted to the only partners owning above capacities and an European User&Steering Committee is maintained during the I2C project lifetime to express user needs to be verified in the 1.5 year system exploitation.
