Based on technological breakthroughs which have been the subject of patents, the consortium aims to develop a high performance product both in terms of detection of small targets such as "trawlers" and in terms of environmental impact.

The resulting product from these developments will aim to integrate into a maritime surveillance system such as those developed under the framework of the Pôle Mer Méditerranée.
