The maritime surveillance consists of high-end integrated solutions or software for maritime safety & security and monitoring, and other applications. It is a component that includes multiple radars, sensors, cameras, automated identification system (AIS) receiver/transponders, central control rooms, and others. This combined solution enhances an offshore surveillance and maritime situational awareness and helps increase overall security and reduces risk.
The radar is compliant for an advanced surveillance system and is coupled with a small target tracker (STT) to provides its operator with the capability to detect small targets such as swimmers, buoys or even wooden stakes. Thus, the radar forms the basis for an effective crisis management and decision support system aimed at deterring terrorism, smuggling and frontier violation and vessel monitoring, and other functions. The maritime surveillance market trends will be deciding on the basis of forecast from 2019 to 2026.
Maritime surveillance is majorly used as a monitoring system around offshore. The maritime monitoring system is a radar-based solution and all the information is available through offshore operators’ room and onshore control room. The system gathers traffic and environment information from the radars, AIS, CCTV, VHF, and other sensors. The information is processed and displayed on the single information surveillance display. All data is superimposed on electronic charts. In addition, the system provides a comprehensive traffic picture of the maritime situation around offshore assets, information about vessels and targets in the guard areas, assures collision avoidance, and provides record and playback of all data in the system. The system can be controlled and monitored remotely. The implementation of such system are at the navels, coastguard areas, and at the port side.

Maritime Safety Awareness
The maritime surveillance system uses dynamic architecture and core technologies to integrate AIS, radar, and satellite communication solutions across the extended network. The anticipation of safety & security across the marine industry is resulting in companies to invest & implement the policies related to the maritime safety. For instance, ETSI has recently launched a new Industry Specification Group on a European Common Information Sharing Environment Service and Data Model (ISG CDM). This ETSI group allow data exchange among different maritime legacy systems to improve maritime situational awareness at sea. Furthermore, Elbit Systems has started operating the maritime UAS patrol service available to countries in the European Union (EU) under a contract between the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) and the Portuguese company CEiiA. Moreover, the maritime surveillance solution provider companies’ active steps coupled with rise in government support for the safety of marine/coastal are the factors boosting the growth of overall maritime surveillance market.
Growth in Cyber Warfare coupled with the maritime terrorism, gun-running, drug trafficking, piracy, and other non-traditional seaborne attack
In modern surveillance system, the radar (long range) acts as an important component. The maritime surveillance solutions are consisting of advanced materials, solid-state modules, digital signal processors, S/W and complex analog to digital converters, and other. The complexity of the systems increases the risk for cyber-attacks, especially in case of signal-based devices. Moreover, increased transnational organized crime (TOC) across border and rise in such groups goal with the use of systematic violence and corruption restrict the growth of the maritime surveillance market in the next coming years.
Supportive growth through regulatory compliance/policies
The growth of the maritime security & safety industry is driven by supportive regulatory compliances. For instance, the JRC contributes to the implementation of the Integrated Maritime Policy, in particular related to Integrated Maritime Surveillance with its competencies in space technologies and data fusion. Moreover, the support is provided by responding to the needs of a wide range of maritime policies for irregular migration/border control, maritime security, fisheries control, anti-piracy, oil pollution, and smuggling. In addition, the global dimension of these policies is addressed to help detect unlawful activities in international waters. Moreover, research & implementation of advance technology-based solutions is undertaken to develop novel for addressing existing capability gaps, such as the tracking of small boats. Furthermore, the European Commission started implementing the cross cutting polices that includes Blue growth, Marine data and knowledge, Maritime spatial planning, Sea basin strategies along with the JRC’s blue hub in-house platform to perform research in the fields of maritime surveillance and Maritime Situational Awareness (MSA) are responsible for creating opportunities for increasing the maritime surveillance market share at certain extend.
