Open Cooperation for European mAritime awareNess
Project’s OCEAN2020 main objective is to support maritime surveillance and interdiction missions at sea. In this regard the project will integrate enhanced air, naval surface and underwater unmanned systems into fleet operations to build up a recognised maritime picture of developing situations for military commanders. The project is run by a consortium led by Leonardo S.p.A, bringing together 42 partners from 15 EU countries.
OCEAN2020 will see unmanned platforms of different type (fixed wing, rotary wing, surface and underwater) integrated with naval units’ command and control centres, allowing for data exchange via satellite, with command and control centres on land. The joint and cooperative use of both manned and unmanned vehicles will also be demonstrated as part of the project.
Project is funded by European Defence Fund.
