Activities

Inception

Experts from Lithuanian and Estonian Border Guards will support the Moldovan Border Police to assess the situation and needs, as well as design the most suitable concept for re-locatable mobile solutions in aerial surveillance for border security and the related training curricula

Capacity building (procurement and trainings)

To respond to Moldovan’s needs, new drones and other related equipment for aerial surveillance will be purchased. Different training sessions will take place in Lithuania, Estonia and Moldova. The sessions will target a diversified audience of end-users, ranging from future pilots of unmanned aerial vehicles to advanced users of the LIDAR system, visual and IR cameras, photogrammetry and 3D mapping.

Dissemination of the results

A final conference will be organised with high-level participants and experts to discuss the project results and prepare the final concept of relocatable aerial surveillance for border security for a nationwide rollout.
