Swedish Coast Guard Sea Surveillance Mission

Baltic Master 2005-11-08

Lennart Dreier, Swedish Coast Guard

assignment by the swedish government
Assignment by the Swedish Government

Swedish Coast Guard

Assigned to coordinate andcollect civil maritime information from 10 Swedish government authorities, to aggregate & compile the collected information and to distributethe ”resulting” information back to users at the same Swedish government authorities.

In order to support the SCG with its assignment an advisory board is established chaired by the Director of SCG and with delegates from the participating authorities.

Swedish Armed Forces

Assigned to collect, correlate and enhance available Maritime Target/Object real time data for objects along the Swedish coast and to provide this data (compiled for civil applications) to the SCG as part of the input of civil maritime information.

the mission has the following objectives
The Mission has the following objectives
  • Improved coordination of information gathering and intelligence activities
  • Serve the common needs of collecting, aggregate & coordinate Sea Surveillance information today and to continue to develop this functionality to meet future needs.
  • The Swedish government authorities participating shall have a role in the establishment of requirements on the information flow and systems to be established to fulfill the mission.
  • The mission shall be carried out with the present authorities structure and shall not require any change in the structure or task of these organizations.
  • Information available in an authority's internal system shall be made available to other authorities through one system in order to avoid development of numerous systems for information sharing between the authorities.

Mission “output”
  • SMIC, Swedish Maritime Intelligence Center, Jointly established and operated by The Swedish Customs, the Swedish Police and the Swedish Coast Guard.
  • SMC, Swedish Maritime Clearance, center for reception of Notifications in Advance required by the Schengen agreement and ship security, operated by the Swedish Coast Guard.

maritime target object real time data definition
Maritime target/object real time data definition
  • Exampels of parameters (similar to AIS) :
  • Position
  • Time for Position Valid
  • Heading
  • Course over Ground
  • Speed over Ground
  • Identity (eg. MMSI , IMO-Number, …)
  • Call Sign
  • Type of Object ( Tanker, Tugboat, …Container…Timber….etc)
  • Data Source (Navy, UAIS, VMS, Observation)
  • Quality information(e.g. sensor type, accuracy)
  • ETA/ ETD
  • Activity (e.g. fishing, at anchor, drifting etc.)
  • AIS = UAIS, Universal Automatic Identification System
  • Carriage Requirement according to IMO SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) Regulations
  • Basic functionality is to provide situational awareness to the officer in charge on the vessels bridge.
  • AIS is an excellent complement to the vessels bridge radar equipment.
  • AIS cannot replace the radar tracking function
  • Sea surveillance systems gets major benefits from the AIS
  • AIS provides automatic object data to radar tracks on board and in surveillance systems
  • Frees operator time to focus on objects that’s “interesting” (i.e. not carrying a AIS transponder)

2. Provides the Real time Maritime target data

5. Receives the aggregated Maritime data and Map information using various tools and filters


4. Compiles the Aggregated Maritime information and provides User tools

traditional system for exchange of data
Traditional system for exchange of data
  • Large number of connections for each system
  • System administration workload is not optimized
  • Complexity increases very fast when additional systems/ connections are added






target system for exchange of data
Target system for exchange of data
  • One external connection for each connected system
  • Centralized development and administration (controllable)
  • Provides scalability

! This principle will of coarse always be complemented by direct communication between Authorities !


Swedish Goverment Secure Internet SGSI

  • SGSI is an “Intranet” between Swedish Authorities
  • with possibility to connect to Eurodomain
  • Includes security solutions i.e. Firewalls

How will SJÖBASIS support users in the carrying out their tasks

SJÖBASIS selects data and presents the data automatically on top of a map based on the needs of the authority and specific user


How will SJÖBASIS support users in the carrying out their tasks

  • The Map content can be dynamically controlled by the users, i.e. additional map layers can be ordered.
  • Conflicting data will be flagged. I.e. if the information contained in the Notification In Advance given to the Swedish Maritime Clearance and other sources is not consistent (i.e. ETA) this will be flagged.
  • Planning of operations will benefit by automatic access to information held all the participating authorities system.
  • Planning of joint operations between authorities will benefit from SJÖBASIS.

How will SJÖBASIS support users in the carrying out their tasks

  • SJÖBASIS provides the user with capability to run a ”Replay” on the recorded target/object real-time data( Input parameters is Start Time, Stop Time, Area and/or Vessels, +++).
  • A found oil spill can be analyzed by the SeaTrackWeb tool, the output will be a forecast of the expected future drift and also a theoretical initial spill-area is calculated. This information can be used together with the replay of recorded target/object data to identify possible vessels that caused the spill for control. SeaTrackWeb can also be used to forecast the position of a “Man Over Board”.
  • The system will generate reports and statistics ordered/defined by the users
  • Intelligence data matches with other data can be automatically flagged and alarmed to appropriate users.

Target/object real-time data


How will SJÖBASIS support users in the carrying out their tasks

The User will have tools to for instance define rules (combinations of data) for ”alarm” criteria's. These alarm rules can be set to operate continuously on the SJÖBASIS data (i.e. regardless if the user is logged on to the system).


Criteria 1 = a Vessel approaches a port that is different from the destination port stated in NIA

Criteria 2 = a Vessel of a certain type (or id) has rendezvous with vessel of a certain type (or id) at sea

Criteria 3 = a Vessels track is outside of a fairway

When the alarm criteria goes “True” an alarm is generated “as specified” i.e. an SMS is sent to the user, an email is sent to the user or both. Now the user decides if further actions shall be taken i.e. log on to SJÖBASIS to study the situation further.
