Detection, classification and identification of marine traffic from space

Objective

The overall objective of this Project is to provide a focus for research into the use of satellite imagery for maritime vessel detection, classification and identification so as to allow researchers to develop a better understanding of the capabilities of such systems, to identify the advantages and drawbacks of different approaches, to strengthen the infrastructure capable of meeting the demands of users and to help drive the development of new sensors and platforms towards the operational needs of vessel monitoring. It will achieve this aim by carrying out a number of benchmark exercises in vessel detection (using SAR and optical imagery) , wake detection and vessel classification and identification.
