Abstract: This article presents the main user needs collected to carry out the I2C project responding to FP7 call That was issued in September 2008 for the topic: Sea Border Surveillance System. I2C project aims at setting-up a maritime surveillance system in the form of a test platform located at one specific location. This study will allow to: - test ways of data integration from a set of sensors and other available intelligent information in order to obtain optimal maritime security awareness; - Develop new algorithms and procedures for processing, using and fusing the data, from the detection up to the understanding of suspicious event and early identification of associated threats; - Discuss about the added value of the various individual sensor types. With this integrated platform, in the future, scaling studies / designs can be made that propose the composition of maritime surveillance systems at specific locations, so authorities can commission these kinds of studies based on the I2C project results. More specific goals of the project are to improve: - The monitoring of vessel movements (including non cooperative vessels) on the European sea border. This requirement imposes the deployment of additional sensors/ platforms and integrating sensor data into a common situational traffic picture; - Detection, tracking and identity/activity confirmation of cooperative vessels. - Non-cooperative vessel tracking and classification; (The last two points request to enrich the common traffic picture with intelligent information to generate a 'common intelligent situational traffic picture') - Detection of small vessels - This point requests specific sensor with small angular resolution (frequency modulation continuous wave radar would be one candidate). - Detection of suspicious behaviour (e.g. deviations from expected routes); - Understanding of intentions of vessels; - Early identification of potentially threatening situations - The last three points request specific algorithms and interpretation supporting tools to detect abnormal vessel behaviour, to understand the corresponding suspicious event, to identify the associated threat and to early report to decisional authority.
