The project intends to  extend the existing HF radar network coverage to the western part of the Malta-Sicily Channel and the southern part of the Maltese archipelago, develop new monitoring and forecasting tools and deliver tailored operational downstream services to assist national entities in their maritime security, rescue and emergency response commitments.
