OCEAN2020’s objective is to support maritime surveillance and interdiction missions at sea. The project will integrate enhanced air, naval surface and underwater unmanned drones into fleet operations to build up a recognised maritime picture of developing situations for military commanders.

The project is run by a consortium led by Leonardo S.p.A, bringing together 42 partners from 15 european countries. The total amounts to €35.5 million which will be funded by the European Union. During his opening address, Jorge Domecq, EDA Chief Executive reminded the importance of the project to demonstrate the importance of cooperative defence research for Europe. 

The meeting was dedicated to discuss about the project's programmatic and technical activities. A large set of deliverables are expected to be prepared within six months and all the actors demonstrate a broad commitment to the achievement of the first milestone. The discussions are geared to consolidate a solid modus operandi in order to coordinate such a bunch of experts coming from different organisations and countries. Presentation of the technical activities in the six work packages composing the project were also held.

During the project two live demonstrations will be conducted in combination with operational military exercises – one in the Mediterranean sea led by the Italian navy in 2019 and one in the Baltic sea in 2020 led by the Swedish navy.
