JASON aims at the R&D of a sophisticated integrated border security system for both sea and land border security, by fusing data from spaceborne sensors such as EO SAR satellites, airborne sensors such as UAV, ship-borne sensors such as AIS (coastal and satellite), and ground-based sensors, such as optical and thermal imaging cameras, radar and sound sensors, etc.
Characteristic top-notch technologies to be extensively employed in JASON include:
1.multi-sensor data fusion for target detection, tracking and identification;
2.image processing and analysis for EO SAR imagery as well as for surveillance cameras installed on ground and onboard UAV;
3. satellite and wireless sensor networking for M2M communications towards the “Internet of Things”;
4. as well as novel smart mobile location-based applications for enhanced service availability anytime, anywhere based on advanced GNSS, GIS and 3G mobile technologies.
