Ocean Finder - Locate, Identify and Track Ocean Assets

This service provides information reports of ocean assets over surfaces and places defined by the user, as  a single image or on a regular basis. The basic level of information provided is a ship detection report which can be optionally enriched with ship classification and identification or activity detection.

  • Reliable service capability with use of radar and optical sensors:
    • SPOT 6/7 for daily collection of areas as big as 100,000km² with an ideal resolution to identify larger ships and detect/classify small to medium sized vessels.
    • TerraSAR-X for near-real-time detection of small to large vessels, whatever the cloud cover and the lighting condition, automated detection capability allows for rapid delivery
  • Transparent service package with selection of appropriate sensors, their activation with the relevant priority and report production (incl. if possible AIS signal matching to pinpoint non reporting boats)
  • Two different modes:
    • Routine mode, for background intelligence, as one-off or on a regular basis
    • To support planned or unplanned operations - rapid delivery is activated to ensure the information is as fresh as possible for users
