Andromeda Ambition

A scrutiny of the current maritime surveillance systems and cooperation arrangements in the EU maritime domain, revealed that there are few technical limitations to achieve a higher degree of information sharing. The legal conditions for information sharing at the EU level are fragmentised and based on a primarily sectoral (vertical) approach.

ANDROMEDA aims to unlock the full capabilities of the CISE Model by enhancing the Maritime CISE Model and by extending its scope to the Land Surveillance Information Exchange.

The project will address the “fragmentation” and close “gaps” in information sharing by providing a secure, effective common situational awareness and information exchange system integrated with CISE.

The proposed solution is a distributed set of systems and services interconnected according to the CISE principles, that aim to foster:
Faster detection of new events.
Better informed decision making.
Achievement of a joint undestarting & undertaking of a situation across borders.

Andromeda Expected Impact

The enhanced CISE Model will streamline the integration with current and future operational systems and is perfectly aligned with the overall European policy that facilitates the interagency interoperability and cooperation and allows each Member State to decide how, when and whether additional data sources are of relevance to its operations.

National and European authorities, law enforcement agencies, intelligence agencies, security providers, are all examples of end users that will benefit from the ANDROMEDA research. ANDROMEDA also impacts positively on academia, industry, technology providers and companies, through matching requirements and capability gaps of users and promoting exploitation and collaboration.

Strengthening European society’s resilience will help safeguard life and European values.
