The Center of the Security Studies of the Hellenic Ministry of Public Order and Ciziten Protection, organized a two-day dissemination event, titled “European Symposium on Border Surveillance and SaR operations technology”, on 27 and 28 of November in Crete.
The objective of the event was to bring together the consortia of the EU Research Projects related to Border Surveillance and SaR Operations for presenting their approaches and results. The projects that participated were PERSEUS, DARIUS, ICARUS, BRIDGE, AKRITAS, AIRBEAM, SUNNY, EWISA, DISASTER, and JASON.
The Integrated Systems Laboratory (ISL) of the National Center for Scientific Research Demokritos took part in the symposium as a major partner of the PERSEUS project.
ISL demonstrated the integrated software and hardware that was developed during PERSEUS course and showcased the advanced surveillance capabilities that OCULUS Sea platfrom is capable of. OCULUS SEA is a C2 platform for Maritime Surveillance. The platform consists of “loosely coupled” National/ Regional and Local C2 Centers which are “centrally governed”. “Loosely coupled” as C2 Centers are located separately, share their Situational Pictures via a Message Oriented Middleware but preserve their administrational and operational autonomy. “Centrally governed” as there exists a central governance mechanism at the NCC that registers, authenticates and authorizes Regional and Local C2 centers into the OCULUS SEA network.
