Radar Tracking and Passive Optronics for the preservation and protection of coastal infrastructure

The PROPAGATION project proposes the deployment of passive means of detection (passive radar, AIS station and network of high resolution cameras), on sites of specific interest to conduct an experiment in fully discrete merged maritime holding positions for all types of vessels and mobile craft.

This "technical platform" will allow the development and evaluation of new generations of plotting extraction algorithms (ships and mobile) and tracking (trajectories) from a combination of actual multi-sensor data, and make cross-calibrations between these sensors and develop a maritime holding position for a permanent coastal base which is completely unobtrusive (i.e. the detection methods used are completely undetectable by technical means available to criminals to carry out acts of malice: sabotage, bombings, hostage taking, etc.).
