This paper outlines an example method and trial scenario phases for extending the existing tools for maritime surveillance across the maritime regions of Europe. There are continuous dedicated efforts throughout European collaborations for advancing the features of Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE), which is a European Union (EU) initiative for ubiquitous information sharing across the maritime and land borders, as well as between the national sectors. The EFFECTOR EU project introduces a novel concept in the information exchange: the data lake, intended for providing a common smart data repository for diverse and comprehensive data analysis and storage that emanates from diverse sources within the local, regional, national, and international scope. Setting up of the data lake facilities and broadened information exchange is established and validated through early trials planned to be conducted in the project. Administration for Maritime Safety and Port Management (AMSPM) is integrating maritime surveillance data from Montenegro in the EU information exchanges and vice versa. The EFFECTOR project’s French maritime trial offers an implementation of the broadened scope of uses of advanced data exchanges, analysis storage, and retrieval. A case of retroactive data analysis and deductions is to be demonstrated through collaboration of AMSPM in the French maritime trial with other project partners. The trial scenario planning includes two vessels coming into the French waters near Marseille from distant ports, one via a stop-over in Montenegro and the other from Portugal.
