Maritime Domain Awareness

All Activities, All Threats, All Trends, We Make it Visible

Maritime Surveillance has become a huge challenge over the past few decades, specifically in regions where maritime traffic represents the major economic interest, potential threats or source of illegal activities such as smuggling, illegal immigration or piracy.

The great maritime nations consider that they do not have the capacity to monitor the entire Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) using only traditional means. Satellites extend surveillance capacities from coastal areas to open seas and provide information in order to optimise operations at sea.

We are in a unique position to provide services, systems and solutions in that market.
