Bauk, Sanja; Kapidani, Nexhat; Lukšić, Žarko; Rodrigues, Filipe; Sousa, Luis

Coordination Of Maritime assets for Persistent And Systematic Surveillance
(COMPASS2020) is an EU H2020 project, which has as an overarching goal deployment of
Unmanned Vehicles (UxV) - aerial, sea surface and underwater ones, in addition to manned
offshore patrol vessels, to enhance current maritime border surveillance operations regarding
detection of irregular migrants and narcotics smugglers. This paper gives an overview of several
research projects on autonomous marine vehicles, as a key technological, organizational and
legislative issue within the project scope: Kaisa, an autonomous vessel prototype built at SAMK
Faculty of Logistics and Maritime Technology in Rauma (Finland). Autonomous Ships 101 from
Solent University in Southampton (England). A review of other articles has served as a
comparative analysis to the surveillance assets proposed by COMPASS2020
