Final Report Summary - I2C (Integrated System for Interoperable sensors & Information sources for Common abnormal vessel behaviour detection & Collaborative identification of threat)

I2C is a 4-year European research project funded by the European commission under FP7, which started the 1st of October 2010.

The project, coordinated by DCNS, is involving 20 European partners including 5 research centres, 6 industrial companies, and 9 SMEs as well as representatives from operational organisations such as the CeCLAD-M, Gendarmerie Maritime, Affaires Maritimes, FRONTEX, etc.
In the framework of EUROSUR (European external border surveillance system) programme guidelines, I2C project aims at setting-up and experiment an end to end integrated innovative maritime surveillance system. This project allows to:
- Test ways of data fusion from a set of new and conventional sensors deployed at sea shore and on board assets at sea, and other available information such as meteorological forecasts, vessel and harbour files, regulated zones and geo data, intelligence, etc. to carry out intelligent situational picture including documented alerts on detected suspicious vessels.
- Develop and integrate innovative capabilities to generate alert on detected suspicious vessel from operational rules and tools for identification of the most plausible associated threats to early keep informed decisional authority to plan relevant actions.

With this integrated project, in the future, scaling studies / designs can be performed that propose the functional architecture of advanced generation of maritime surveillance systems at any specific shore locations, so authorities can commission their end to end information system based on the I2C project innovative capabilities, the operational architecture and campaign exercises feedbacks.

I2C integrated demonstrator is a unique deployed technical platform for interoperable multi sensor data process refinement and management, and correlation of many other information of interest for reliable, continuous, permanent and all weather surveillance of any vessel tracks and activities over wide maritime territories and process with success irregular migration and serious crimes at sea.
