This study presents an open and interoperable maritime surveillance framework with multimodal sensor networks and an automated decision-making. The intention is to improve sea-border control, plugging the gaps in the maritime security with interoperability solutions and have wide-area situational awareness, thus particular reducing the number of illegal immigrants crossing sea borders in small boats, with a cost-effective approach. In this paper initial results are presented. This research is a part of a European project supported by ITEA2, Eureka Cluster Programme (RECONSURVE Project, no: ITEA2 09036).
