Abstract: In the framework of the European Commission funded TANGO project, a new architecture for fisheries surveillance is being tested. This architecture makes use of satellite communication as well as a medium sized UAV in complement to the already mature satellite imagery based Vessel Detection System. The purpose is to allow countries with extended fisheries control areas but limited means to have operational access to this technology without the costs of installing and maintaining heavy equipment such as receiving Ground Stations and patrol means.
