Promenade project - EU H2020

ImPROved Maritime awarENess by means of AI and BD mEthods

Optimize maritime information

European waters are navigated daily by 12 000 vessels approximately, which share their positions to avoid collisions, generating a huge number of positional messages every month. It is important that this overabundance of information will not overwhelm the marine operators in charge for decision-making.

Collaborative exchange

Promenade promotes collaborative exchange of knowledge between maritime surveillance authorities, advancing market exploitation, cutting down the time to market and guaranteeing compliance with legal and ethical regulations and norms.

AI for Threat detection

The use of Artificial Intelligence allows the analysis of a large amount of data, improve surveillence capabilities and make it possible to detect threats at a global scale before reaching EU waters.

New technologies

Promenade will foster new technologies to provide to the Border Guards Authorities a toolkit for automatic vessel detection, tracking and bahavioural analysis.


Promenade will increase the maturity of previous and on-going research activities

Main objectives are:

  • To develop new technologies
  • To enhance the research results undertaken in previous H2020 projects
  • To facilitate collaboration among maritime surveillance agencies
  • To shorten the adoption time to innovative technologies by the Border Guards Authorities
  • To ensure compliance of all the project activities with legal and ethical regulations and norms.
