ALADDIN coordinator, CS Group, presented the overall concept of ALADDIN solution, project’s results and several videos displaying the system in action, during the third public and virtual workshop of ILEAnet project, the “ILEAnet Public Workshop on Innovative technologies for border management“, which was held on 4-5 of November 2020.
The ILEAnet (Innovation by Law Enforcement Agencies Networking) project aims to bridge the gap between LEA practitioners and the security research community to support concrete results for a more secure Europe. It is concerned with facilitating the uptake of security research projects’ outputs by police forces, from the articulation of practitioners’ operational needs to the identification and implementation of innovative solutions that
could assist them in their daily work. Under the scope of the project and with the support and participation of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), this third ILEAnet Public Workshop brought together LEA experts and the security research community to reflect on approaches and explore solutions that could assist police forces in three areas of work – registration of irregular migrants, pre-frontier area monitoring and the use of information systems.
In that framework, ALADDIN was one of the H2020 project that was presented during this session, depicting the effort made by EU funded research projects to address and counter the threat posed by non-cooperative UAS flying near or over restricted areas. ALADDIN results that were collected during the First Pilot in Spain and the data capturing session in Markopoulo, Greece, were also presented; thus, the participants had the opportunity to assess the capabilities of each sensor and the efficiency of ALADDIN system as a whole.
