    26.7.2022

    Question for written answer  E-002739/2022
    to the Commission
    Rule 138
    Özlem Demirel (The Left)

    Frontex is now using space surveillance to detect high-frequency radio signals. This will, for example, allow the agency to identify ships that have turned off their transponder and as such cannot be located. The information could also be used to find boats carrying refugees, provided that there is a phone intended for maritime emergencies aboard. Frontex has not yet provided details of any contracts awarded.
