ALFA will naturally build on results from a number of EU and national projects in which ALFA partners were actively involved in. A more detailed overview and description how ALFA may reuse their results or go beyond their objectives is given:

The mission of the SafeShore project is to tackle existing problems and gaps in coastal border surveillance by developing a system for detection of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) using state-of-the-art, low cost, and low-emission technology. The system will be integrated with existing systems and create a continuous detection line along the border to help border officials in preventing crime such trafficking of human beings and smuggling of drugs.
The EU-funded 'Protection of European seas and borders through the intelligent use of surveillance' (PERSEUS) project aims to develop and demonstrate an appropriate system. The innovation combines existing national systems and provides new capabilities that exceed European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR) 2013 expectations.
The major objective of AIRBEAM (AIRBorne information for Emergency situation Awareness and Monitoring) project was to propose a situation awareness toolbox for the management of crisis over wide area taking benefit of an optimised set of aerial (unmanned) platforms, including satellites.
DOLPHIN is an EU Copernicus research and development project which aims to improve spacebased maritime surveillance techniques in order to support activities in the areas of Border Surveillance, Traffic Safety and Fisheries Control.
NEREIDS (New Service Capabilities for Integrated and Advanced Maritime Surveillance) is an FP7 Copernicus research and development project in the field of support to Maritime Surveillance. The project aimed to support the development of an integrated vision of Maritime Policy and Maritime Surveillance, with implications for a number of different maritime domains (Illegal trafficking, illegal immigration,fisheries control, piracy).
he SeaBILLA proposal aims to 1) define the architecture for cost-effective European Sea Border Surveillance systems, integrating space, land, sea and air assets, including legacy systems; 2) apply advanced technological solutions to increase performances of surveillance functions; 3) develop and demonstrate significant improvements in detection, tracking, identification and automated behaviour analysis of all vessels, including hard to detect vessels, in open waters as well as close to coast.
