Oil and Gas shipping, especially for off-shore extraction activities management, need to monitor their company marine vessel paths and travels worldwide, both for their distribution strategy and security reasons.
A reliable detection of all sailing or stationary vessels is necessary in case of manipulated or turned off identification systems occurrence (e.g. AIS, LRIT) and in case of anomalous behaviours. Dangerous behaviours, both coming from company ships and other unknown vessels, must be assured and often proven (possible pollution, suspected piracy attacks, unofficial routes, etc.).
Short description of the solution
Our technology is based on the analysis of an high frequency Synthetic Aperture RADAR data monitoring campaign. Our multimission center is fully integrated with our processing tool (SEnSE - Smart Eyes on the SEas) allowing us to observe targets at sea over large areas in a very short time, each day.
We provide Near Real time reports of Maritime Situation Awareness based on the positioning and the forecasted route of the vessel according to the customer alert workflow.
(SEnSE - Smart Eyes on the SEas) Near Real Time Target detection tool
Our proprietary tool integrates Satellite Radar with all the existing surveillance data to obtain Near Real Time Target detection. We provide a complete Maritime Situation Awareness, through:
- observation frequency enhancing up to continuity (e.g. by combining satellite data and coastal surveillance systems, where available)
- detection and characterization of not-cooperative vessels, not-transmitting their position. Satellite data represent the most cost-effective mean to detect these vessels.
Maritime Situation Awareness within 30 minutes from the data sensing
RADAR data (particularly [COSMO-SkyMed]) is the ideal instrument for observing targets at sea over large areas in a very short time, each day. Themas-2 allows us to deliver the Maritime Situation Awareness within 30 minutes from the satellite pass as:
- Vessel detection and characterization
- Eventual pollution/pollutant detection (Oil Spill)
- Ocean and weather conditions assessment (wind & waves) if requested
COSMO-SkyMed - All weather and solar illumination conditions
Thanks to the SAR satellite COSMO-SkyMed constellation our service offers reliable and very frequent data acquisitions regardless of cloud coverage/solar illumination conditions. It can therefore guarantee a global coverage, giving more value to your monitoring in terms of: early warning, increased efficiency in patrolling resources use and costs reduction.
WebGis easy access
All our services are easily accessible by a dedicated and protected OGC compliant WebGIS platform, which provides a user friendly visualization and allows to directly download the products. Our final products could be also provided in any other customer’s compatible format for any operational needs.
