The ScanMaris project is a software workshop designed to develop and evaluate solutions for hread prevention and maritime border monitoring. It relies on enriched tactical picture exploitation tools resulting from the continuous treatment of important volumes of heterogeneous data gathered in real time and differed time. ScanMaris will enable the supervision of the permanent evolving traffic on a global maritime zone in order to follow the flow of transported goods (bulk, containers, energy, chemical....) according to various routes (corridor, coastal traffic...) and to automatically detect criminal traffic of illicit products.
ScanMaris will use data treatment tools to merge ship’s kinematic data and other information to establish and maintain a global enriched tactical picture compilation of the traffic, the training methods and the models which exploit the tactical picture. This produces a permanent knowledge of goods flows, improves its follow-up and the rules of investigation organised to detect irregularities like illicit products flows, disasters, regulation violations, etc.
The ScanMaris project will involve functions that improve the effectiveness of a global surveillance of the contraveners. They will contribute to set up optimal answers and intervention means adequately fitting the struggle against illicit activities and maritime violations.
The ScanMaris project is the result of a thorough analysis of the needs and requirements of EU member States in terms of maritime security pursued by the partners consortium on the basis of various publicly available pieces of information, such as for example the EU Green Paper or the ESRAB Report. Following this analysis, the consortium has come to the conclusion that an efficient solution in the field of surveillance of wide maritime area would have to encompass the following features:
Then, the technical components studied, developed and evaluated within the ScanMaris project will enable to improve the effectiveness of an overall monitoring and detection of the contraveners in the frame of increasing and complex vessel traffic. They will thus contribute to set up optimal solutions, well adapted to the struggle against disasters, illicit activities and violations to the regulations.
