The demonstration was carried out in collaboration with the Greek coast guard and the Greek Ministry of Defence, who both provided the necessary logistical and human resources. The system deployed in Aktio also incorporated the Greek UAV Pegasus, presenting an opportunity to showcase the interoperability of the Perseus system. The operation was monitored from the coast guard command centre in Athens, and our system was interfaced with a Greek operations command and control system (C2).
