PERSEUS contributed to Europe's efforts to monitor illegal migration and combat related crime and goods smuggling by proposing a large scale demonstration of a EU Maritime surveillance System of Systems, on the basis of existing national systems and platforms, enhancing them with innovative capabilities and moving beyond EUROSUR's 2013 expectations, addressing key challenges:
PERSEUS assembled major users and providers, ensuring privileged access to existing surveillance systems and assets for optimised coverage of the area of interest. These users defined, assessed and validated the alignment of PERSEUS's recommendations to their needs. PERSEUS also included an evolution mechanism to enlarge the user base and integrate emerging technologies during its lifetime.
PERSEUS augmented the effectiveness of operational capabilities of existing systems - a relevant and coordinated contribution to the establishment of an integrated European-wide maritime border control system.
