1st ALFA Workshop
1st ALFA WORKSHOP co-located with 12th CoU Meeting 3rd – 4th December 2018 in Brussels Belgium
You are all cordially invited to join the 1st ALFA Workshop. This workshop will be held on 4th December 2018 in Brussels co-located with the 12th Meeting of the Community Of Users (CoU) On Secure, Safe And Resilient Societies (https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ehome/cou-mailinglist/home/), preceding the Security Research Event (SRE) 2018.
The ALFA workshop is organised under the umbrella of the European Union H2020 project ALFA (Advanced Low Flying Aircrafts Detection and Tracking) and aims to show the results and achievements of two correlating projects, namely ALFA and SafeShore.
Protecting European borders against drug trafficking is crucial, which is currently aggravated by the increasing use of small aircrafts that allow for almost undetected border crossings, especially coastal borders. Therefore, a system is needed that can add to existing surveillance means and significantly increases the detection probability, particularly for small aircrafts. Moreover, a prediction of the landing or dropping zone of the aircraft is required.
This one-day workshop illustrates the results and achievements of the ALFA and SafeShore projects and highlights the following points:
- Current state of the art in border security
- New technologies to improve border security
- A demonstration on how the ALFA and SafeShore system could be integrated within your organization.
- A demonstration of the added value of ALFA and Safeshore projects
- A great networking opportunity with the available experts will be provided
There is no registration fee for workshop participants and all necessary material will be provided.
Your confirmation of attendance will be greatly appreciated.
