CO.RI.S.T.A. participates in the program funded in the framework of Horizon 2020
Through-foliage detection, including in the outermost regions of the EU
Proponent: AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology)

The main goal of FOLDOUT is to develop, test and demonstrate a system and solution to detect and locate people and vehicles operating under the coverage of trees and other foliage over large areas in the inner and outermost regions of the EU.

FOLDOUT will build a system that combines various sensors and technologies and intelligently fuses these into an effective and robust intelligent detection platform. Fusing several sensor signals increases the effectiveness of detection.



FOLDOUT will make the tasks of Border Guards simpler and faster by combining events from various sensors to give a complete situation threat assessment combined with suggested reaction scenarios. By considering all existing sensor technologies FOLDOUT can be adapted to fulfill the requirements of various scenarios in harsh environments.

A two year pilot in Bulgaria and demonstrators in Greece, Finland and French Guiana FOLDOUT will provide fundamental enhancements in the domain of border surveillance and improved search & rescue scenarios.
