This document first justifies itself, i.e. the necessity of legalities and ethics, then briefly introduce the project (and links to related projects) before introducing the norms in the ANDROMEDA domain, i.e. maritime and border security. Then after, concerns of privacy, data protections and OSINT1 and AI are dealt, before introducing the ethical challenges in maritime and land border security. This is followed by the results of the Societal Impact Assessment (SIA) carried out in the beginning of the project. Then the focus is turned to perhaps the most pivotal section of this document: the ethical requirements. There are 21 general ethical requirements, 13 requirements specifically for the technology, five for user processes and training material, and eight for adaptation and business/governance models. However, this list lives during the projects as more detailed information, for example, on the data sources, sensors and legacy systems is collected and analysed. Ethics never ends, nor does technical advancement, so there might be changes or adjusts in the presented requirements, too. Maybe, above is also the justification for the last part of this document: the initial Code of Conduct of ANDROMEDA. These are the nine ethical and moral principles according which ANDROMEDA, both the project and the results, is done.
