ERS-2 data vital for maritime security
Date:10/23/2007

Data from ERS-2, ESAs veteran spacecraft, is experiencing an increasing demand as the 12-year-old missions products and services are playing a vital role in the initial activities for Global Monitoring for Environment and Security, such as the MARitime Security Service project which addresses the European concern of illegal marine trafficking.

The MARitime Security Service (MARISS) is a GMES Service Element (GSE) initiative that integrates near real time satellite Earth Observation (EO) data with conventional vessel tracking data to deliver an understanding of the maritime situation to coast guards, navies and border police forces in Europe.

Within the MARISS partnership, service providers require Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery such as that provided by ERS-2 within 15 to 20 minutes in order to rapidly detect vessels and extract their positions. This data is integrated with coastal surveillance systems such as coastal radar, the Automatic Identification System (AIS) and the Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) for tracking fishing vessels.

With this information, service providers can locate all vessels not reporting their position using conventional identification systems and transmit the position of these non-cooperative vessels to the relevant authorities in less than 30 to 60 minutes of the satellite overpass.

Service providers speak

The service providers within the MARISS consortium are Italys Telespazio, Spains GMV, Frances Collecte Localisation Satellites (CLS), Portugals EDISOFT and Skysoft, the United Kingdoms QinetiQ and the Norways KSAT. These companies are currently delivering prototype services to the Italian Guardia Costiera and the Ministero dellInterno, the Spanish Guardia Civil and Navy, the French Departement des Affaires Maritimes, the Portuguese Department of Maritime, the Irish Navy Service, the Swedish Coast Guard, the Finnish Border Guard, the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) and Fron
