Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of the development of maritime surveillance information acquisition, analysis, and dissemination systems in Estonia. Coastal radar and radio (AIS, VHF) surveillance systems for air and marine vessel traffic monitoring have been set up or are currently in the process of being set up by Estonian national authorities. As a result, fragments of more or less recognized maritime surface situational picture of different track quality, reliability and extent of coverage are at the disposal of several governmental organizations. All relevant organizations would benefit from commonly contributing, correlating, fusing (where reasonable) and sharing this information with each other, but such mechanisms of common tactical depository and inter-organizational secure surveillance information exchange do not yet exist.
