SBMDA Neyland October 2013 with Sail to Fiji.v1.1

  • Small vessels at sea may not be detectable by current land and space-based approaches with AIS and/or SAR
  • Space Based Maritime Domain Awareness (SBMDA) is recognized Internationally as mutually beneficial
  • Space-Based AIS data collection is becoming a commodity
  • Demonstrations in 2006 and LiMES in 2010 successfully showed that EO/IR can be used with AIS and SAR to identify and track vessels at sea
  • There is currently no approach or incentive to provide ubiquitous commercial satellite ocean imagery for use in SBMDA
