CISE’s operationalization launch through A Long Endurance and Real live Test


Main objectives

Logo CISECISE is a European initiative from DG MARE (Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries) currently managed by EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency). CISE aims to facilitate and improve the secure exchange of information and data among European authorities involved in maritime surveillance. CISE should end up gathering over 300 participants, and after a 10-year development, will enter its operational phase in 2023.

CISE-ALERT will support the launching end 2023 of the operational phase of CISE. With the aim to improve interoperability and reinforce cross-border cooperation within the maritime surveillance sector, the project will test CISE in real operational conditions, and ensure that sufficient data and services are integrated.

The project will : 

  • explore available and relevant data
  • support the development in CISE of identified services of interest
  • choose specific use cases
  • showcase CISE added-value at a final demonstration event


The testing of all the capabilities offered by CISE, the support from EU maritime agencies (such as FRONTEX, EFCA, EMSA) and the participation of new actors are also sought.
