PASSAGES - Protection and Advanced Surveillance System for the Arctic: Green, Efficient, Secure

July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2016

Mission Statement

This initiative is an applied research project that aims to specify the requirements and the modular architecture of an innovative and persistent maritime surveillance system that is adapted to arctic conditions. Although the basic system elements should be universally deployable in different arctic and subarctic regions, the focus of this particular project is on the effective surveillance of the Northwest Passage (NWP) leading through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
