United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) – Quantifying Congested Maritime Environments
SCISYS worked together with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) on a study researching congested maritime environments using spaceborne data including optical/radar imagery and Automatic Identification System (AIS).
Improved understanding of patterns of life allows for greater situational awareness for users of maritime waterways thereby delivering value-add information to existing maritime products and services.
SCISYS’ novel approach involved automatically mining through large volumes of satellite data to build up a picture of long-term spatial and temporal activity, locating a wide range of vessel types irrespective of whether they are broadcasting an AIS signal.
