DECISMAR (development of a DECISion support toolbox for enhancing the feasibility study of the upgrade of MARitime surveillance through the integration of legacy assets with new innovative solutions) is a research proposal, joined by Zanasi & Partners and coordinated by ETME, funded by the European Commission (EC) under the European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP) between 2020 and 2024.

The objective of the DECISMAR project is to develop a decision support toolbox (DSTx), implemented as a cyber-secured and future-proofed integrated IT environment, to provide future technological scenarios. The DSTx will provide a dynamic and interactive approach for conducting feasibility studies which aim to support the upgrade of maritime surveillance under the scope of both current and future defined High-Level Operational Requirements (HLORs) of the PESCO Project “Upgrade of Maritime Surveillance”.

DECISMAR will identify mature or novel technologies that can meet new tasks and missions’, including:

  • evaluate the performance of individual technological advances and related products;
  • evaluate and/or estimate the cost, performance and risk associated with the production and deployments of various combinations of previously described systems;
  • provide decision makers with the necessary toolkit to fuse and visualise the resulting evidence and associated streams of information into a coherent output.

The DSTx will ultimately permit to support and facilitate the decision-making process.

The consortium of DECISMAR consists of 12 SME and 2 Research Institutes from 8 EU Member States, thus benefitting of diverse and complementary competences. The recognized competence in Strategic Technology Foresight entitled Z&P to be leader in the activities regarding Technology Watch, investigating the available methods used for performing future technology analysis and proposing the most appropriate ones for DECISMAR.
