In order to achieve this, the industrial and research laboratories of the PACA region have grouped together to create a prototype of an intrusion detection system across a sensitive marine area in the PACA region.
This project has two phases. Work for Phase 1 led the participants to select one of the tanker terminals at the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille in the Gulf of FOS for the deployment of detection equipment. After classification of specific terrorist threats to this site, experiments were conducted. These experiments and the following analysis helped define a prototype monitoring system adapted to sensitive marine areas combining various and complementary means of detection and taking into account the restrictions inherent in this type of environment. The SECMAR monitoring system defined from this includes, hardware and software open architecture, modular and generic detection means such as Sonar, Radar and Optronics which were developed in Phase 2 by the partners. In addition to these high-tech sensors, the Earth Centre is responsible for applying the data received from these sensors and sensors in service at the port (VTS, AIS) innovative merging processes for the detection of abnormal behaviour. Consistent with the objective of providing an effective response to irregular threats the SECMAR prototype developed in Phase 2 was used by operators of the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille for a long experimental period of 6 months to allow a real environment with 24/7 operations for validation tests and promotion of the system.
