The BLUEMASSMED (BMM) Project aims to
- define the architecture of the future European wide Maritime Surveillance Network that will allow the interoperability among all Maritime Surveillance Systems, existing or future, basing on an agreed, standard reference model, to optimise the efficiency in the use presently made of the maritime patrolling and surveillance resources.
The BMM Project represents the community forming and experimental phase preceding the full implementation of such a European wide capability and it will lay the foundation of such architecture, through the creation of a multi-national, operational and technical Core Community committed to design, test and validate the mentioned model.
- develop methodologies and procedures common to all European Nations for the exploitation of the Network, taking into account the specific dual use nature, civil and military, of maritime surveillance.
- mobilize partners around a concrete and practical process starting by requirement analysis, defining a coherent frame, and leading to a field demonstration of a shared basic common maritime picture (SBCMP) updated on a near real time basis, and leveraging this mobilizing end, to make incremental advances on users, legal, administrative and technical grounds.
