The General Secretariat of the Home Affairs Ministry has (SGMAI) approved a 2.3 million euro project to strengthen the GNRs operational capacity to survey and control Portugal’s coast.

75% of the costs - 1.7 million euros - of the project approved by SGMAI will be financed by European funds. Bolstering the control of maritime navigation and increasing the levels of internal security at a national and EU level is one of the main objectives to be achieved with the new Automatic Identification System (AIS) with vessels and multiple surveillance cameras.
