There is currently high demand for services from users as defined in §1.1.12 of EN-03 Tender Specifications Appendix 1 Technical Specifications, e.g. Member States and/or EU agency. However there are no official estimates regarding the number of deployments and flight hours. EMSA commits to purchase services only through the signature of Specific Contracts. These are linked to a request for services from a user, which also defines the duration and flight hours. With regards to deployment locations, as explained in §2.1.1.3 of EN-03 Tender Specifications Appendix 1 Technical Specifications, "areas of operation can be all sea areas surrounding the European Union with an EU or EFTA country or as a starting point of the service and if requested by governmental users, the service could be extended outside EU adjacent seas upon common agreement".
