Improving the recognised maritime picture has been a subject of an increasing interest from a variety of users including military, law enforcement, environmental agencies, sea fright carriers or offshore oil and gas industries.
The IET technical seminar on Maritime Surveillance from Space will discuss implications of new space-based capabilities to collect, store and process information on the maritime environment. Major technologies including space-based AIS and SAR will be covered, with a detailed focus on the key challenges like payload design challenges or interference mitigation.
Data collection and fusion capabilities are of critical importance in the maritime surveillance environment so this seminar will also be looking at the integration of different satellite data streams (optical, radar, S-AIS, LRIT) with conventional ship reporting systems (AIS, VMS coastal radar/VTS).
