26 WIMAAS / Wide maritime area airborne surveillance Coordinator THALES AIRBORNE SYSTEMS S.A 14 partners 10 countries Cost : 3,9 M EU Contr. 2,7 M End Date : 30/11/2011 Addressed primarily the need to control illegal immigration and human trafficking at sea In line with EU Maritime Policy, contribution to other missions: shipping safety, search and rescue, protection of the marine environment, fisheries monitoring, interception of illegal trade and smuggling arriving by sea. Aimed in particular at developing key technologies to prepare the future for the operational use of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) and innovative mission aircraft Taking into account the operational end-user requirements proposes original and innovative technological solutions to increase airborne maritime surveillance efficiency, while reducing costs. Filling the gap between Piloted Mission Aircraft and UAVs for maritime surveillance, and preparing concepts for using UAVs with remote control mission system operation and combining these with existing maritime surveillance systems. Partly simulating and partly demonstrating including a flight demo of a UAV the concept with end-users feedback, analysed the cost efficiency in support of the feasibility of the concept and reported a road map for further technological activities in this area.

27 AIRBEAM AIRBorne information for Emergency situation Awareness and Monitoring Cost: 15,438, EC Grant: 9,971, Coordinator EADS 22 partners 10 countries A situation awareness toolbox for the management of crisis over wide area, taking benefit of an optimised set of aerial (unmanned) platforms, including satellites. The number of unmanned air- and space-borne platform available and their associated sensors present a new set of challenges to end users involved in the effective management of emergencies and actions of law enforcement. The project intends to provide official public users from each Member States the means to specify their own needs and to assess the technical solutions provided by unmanned aerial platforms. Through collaboration between industrial partners, stakeholders and end users, AIRBEAM will define an ambitious yet realistic concept of use. By running scenarios that will be properly selected and defined by the end-users within the project in a simulated environment, increased capabilities for situation awareness will be assessed methodically. Various platform and sensor mixes will be compared using key performance indicators (e.g. cost effectiveness). Live demonstrations with multiple civil unmanned aerial platforms to complete ground simulation exercises to demonstrate to end users potential and maturity of coordinated use of multiple platforms.

28 ESS / Emergency support system Coordinated by VERINT SYSTEMS LTD Cost : 14 M EU Contr.: 9,1 M 19 partners, 9 countries End Date The purpose is to enable improved control and management of major crisis events (e.g. natural disasters, industrial accidents, terror attacks etc.) The idea guiding the development is a portable, modular and autonomous system which fuses in real-time various forms of field-derived data including video, audio, weather measurements, location tracking, radioactivity, biochemical, telecom derived data, affected population reports and other information. Data is collected and communicated via both portable and fixed platforms including wireless communication devices, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), Unmanned Ground System (UGS), air-balloons and field vehicles. Fusion of data handled within a central system which performs information analysis and provides decision support applications for web based command and control systems, providing flexible, yet comprehensive coverage of the affected area. Once available to market, the ESS concept will offer real time synchronization and information sharing between first responders and support forces at the site of the incident. ESS will also enable the commanders to communicate with the affected on-site personnel by sending text (SMS) or recorded voice messages.
