Against the background of increasing goods flows throughout the world and rising demands made on security and environmental protection, the subject of "Maritime Safety and Surveillance" is becoming a very important one. The German federal state of Bremen is home to a particularly large number of competent industrial companies, research facilities and service providers in this field. In future, they will be focusing to a stronger degree on enhancing the technical competence of the state and the region and on promoting Bremen as a competence centre for maritime security both nationally and internationally. To this end, the companies Atlas Elektronik GmbH, Astrium GmbH, Beluga Shipping GmbH, OHB-System AG, Rheinmetal Defence Electronics GmbH and CEON GmbH have joined forces to form the competence cluster "Maritime Safety and Surveillance".
