With recent developments in spatial resolution, revisit capabilities and near real-time delivery of data, maritime organizations are using VHR imagery to gain a deeper insight into activities at sea.
European agencies and national coast guards gain access to timely situational information for pollution monitoring, illegal fishing activities and emergency response and rescue.
VHR imagery supports:
- Pollution control & oil spill detection
- Vessel location & vessel detection
- Prevention of Piracy
- Supporting fishery controls
- Coastal zone preservation
- Ice monitoring
