Blue Box Porbeagle Project
The motivation of the Blue Box Porbeagle Project is to give response to GSA/GRANT/02/2019 call for proposals Lot 1 developing a close-to-market complete shipborne integrated equipment (TRL 7), compliant with regulatory standards for Vessel Monitoring Devices required by EFCA and countries regulations, and that will disrupt current market solutions through the first use of anti-spoofing cybersecurity protection technology and improved accuracy with dual frequency enhancing the fishery VMS with E-GNSS Galileo Open Service (OS).
To create a close-to-market trusted dual-frequency VMS as a cost-effective line-replaceable unit (LRU). The Blue Box Porbeagle VMS shipborne equipment will decode dual frequency position, velocity, and time (PVT) information from E1/E5a E-GNSS signals and perform autonomous GNSS data messages authentication based on OS-NMA.
Completion of VMS shipborne following identified functional and regulatory requirements.
Dissemination of expected impact and activities among main fisheries policy stakeholders
Development shipborne equipment architecture and allocate requirements to internal circuit boards
The manufacture of eficiente prototypes.
Validation campaign installing devices in fishing vessels.
Deep dissemination of technical results.
