Scenario 1 combines surveillance, interdiction and engagement of multiple high speed unmanned surface threats. All types of UxV´s will be demonstrated during the scenario.
During the days before the execution and start of scenario 1, space borne Optical/SAR Satellites, together with AIS data provided by satellites of commercial operators, have been tasked to provide systematic watch and area search surveillance over a selected Area of Interest (AOI).
An alert is received at BCC-CTG (Baltic Command Center) and EU MOC (Maritime Operation Centre), highlighting an anomaly in the AOI detected by satellite data processing. Satellite data acquisitions over the pre-set Area of Interest indicates an anomaly, which is transmitted to the BCC-CTG and EU MOC triggering the start of the scenario. Anomaly is caused by the two combat boat 90 acting as high speed military surface threats, which leave the naval port.
Further information is gathered on the contacts of interest, in order to improve the situational awareness. The BCC-CTG performs resource tasking according to the capabilities and availability of the assets and the mission priority.
The two suspected high speed military surface threat contacts are localised, classified and finally identified as hostile by BCC-CTG based on EO video from USV CB 90, USV Piraya and USV MAST.
The two hostile high speed contacts approaching Europe’s coastline and the naval base area from north east, are engaged (following the Rules of Engagement) by first deter and then destroy (simulated) with gunfire from USVs CB 90, Piraya and MAST.
This part of the scenario will be executed by finding on the seabed two already existing ship wrecks, simulating the sunken targets (the location of the engagement in Phase 4 being compatible with the known positions of the existing ship wrecks on the seabed).
