The OCEAN 2020 team is coordinated by Leonardo and involves 42 partners from 15 European countries. It pulls together technical specialists in the maritime domain from many different disciplines.
OCEAN 2020 (Open Cooperation for European mAritime awareNess) is funded by the European Union’s Preparatory Action on Defence Research and implemented by the European Defence Agency.
The project aims to demonstrate enhanced situational awareness in a maritime environment by integrating legacy and new technologies for unmanned systems and ISTAR payloads.
The OCEAN 2020 consortium will specifically address the problems of integrating EU systems and individual organisations into an effective framework. Work will include demonstrations in the Mediterranean and Baltic seas, supporting Europe’s strategic requirements in the maritime domain.
