The AF3 project sought to improve the  efficiency of fire-fighting operations by developing innovative technologies in the area of early detection and monitoring, advanced aerial firefighting and major emergency co-ordination.                    




The PULSE initiative was designed to enable Europe to effectively prepare and to respond efficiently to the pandemic diseases or other major incidents with a large number of casualties.




The EU-funded project SAGRES (Services activations for growing Eurosure’s success) objective was to assist the EU security services including FRONTEX and EMSA better monitor European waters.         




The MobiPV augmented reality project (AR) was conceived as a way to clearly identify the critical areas where AR technology can add value, as well as to start the definition of a generic architecture and workflow.

Marine-Earth Observation (EO) initiative is designed to procure and support the development of EO-based services, bringing incremental and radical innovations in the field of maritime awareness.



PRECYSE is an European research funded project that defines, develops and validates a methodology, an architecture and a set of technologies and tools to improve  the security, reliability and resilience of the ICT systems.                                



The main objective of DARIUS was to identify a range of unmanned systems and integrate them to allow a co-ordinated unmanned response to emergency situations.




PERSEUS was a large scale demonstration project in the area of EU Maritime surveillance aimed at monitoring  illegal migration and other criminal activity at sea.




ANISTIAMO is an ESA/ESRIN funded project addressing challenges in satellite-based maritime surveillance from the Atlantic to the Artic Sea areas. 




Skytek’s Collaborative Working Environment (CWE) is a web portal designed to provide the CDF with the latest in collaborative and communication software.




The E-Collaboration for Earth Observation (E-CEO) project addresses the technologies and architectures needed to provide a collaborative research platform for automating data mining and information extraction experiments.     



The RESPOND project enabled the Dublin Fire Brigade using mobile communication technology, originally developed for astronauts on the International Space Station, to gain crucial information about emergency situations while on route to accident scenes.



The MobiPV project brings IPV to a smartphone to allow greater mobility and flexibility for the astronauts, but also to add extra features, such as two-way video communication and real time collaboration.                                                                                    



The CRUISE project demonstrated voice-guided teamwork between crew and computer. This project is aimed at improving astronaut efficiency on long missions when movement is limited.                                                            



FOREST aimed at addressing  some of the issues and limitations of current systems by enhancing the  integration, searching  and visualisation observations from different instruments on a single spacecraft.



The IPV project sought to streamline astronauts workflow to ensure that only steps  that are actually required to perform an activity are provided to the astronaut.




The main goal of FedSS was to provide an IT infrastructure to support the sharing of sensitive information on a secure need-to-share basis.
