TechNet Europe 2018 - Challenging the Situational Awareness on the Sea – from Sensors to Analytics.
New technologies for data gathering, dissemination, sharing and analytics in the Mediterranean theatre, on the 6th and 7th November, in Sorrento - Italy
e-GEOS will participate in the event in which representatives from some of the highest levels of the European and NATO institutional, academic and industrial world will discuss the current situation, challenges and the prospects of Maritime Situational Awareness
e-GEOS CEO, Mr. Massimo Claudio Comparini will present SEonSE (Smart Eyes on the SEas), e-GEOS maritime security platform which integrates data coming from multiple sources and provides multiple services for maritime security and surveillance, monitoring of illegal traffic, environment protection as well as fight against piracy.
SEonSE processes information acquired from satellites and coastline radars and merges them on an automatic and continuous basis, thanks to proprietary algorithms, with positioning data sent by vessels (AIS, VMS, LRIT), registries of ships and various databases along with meteorological and oceanographic information. This data is then compared with historical information and customary behaviors, making it possible to identify anomalous activities and potential threats to security. The result is timely and easily accessible information, crucial to identifying possible risks which are signaled by automatically generated alerts to intercept the vessel in question, to plan the actions of the relevant authorities and to trace secure routes in hostile environments.
Crucial in terms of security and monitoring is the contribution of satellite images, which allow the observation on a global scale of cooperating or non-cooperating vessels – therefore even the ones that do not comply with identification requirements at sea – in any weather conditions, in remote areas, by day and night.
SEonSE, in particular, combines the high resolution and the flexibility of the Italian COSMO-SkyMed radar satellite constellation with the frequency of programmed acquisitions of the Sentinels of the Copernicus European programme. In addition, the platform already allows the integration of data generated by the constellations of mini-satellites, like Planet and BlackSky, granting a non-stop and complete updating of the situation at sea.
SEonSE also leverages on, in real-time, over 7 million AIS signals sent every day by about 165,000 vessels which are managed by exactEarth, a worldwide leader in satellite AIS data services, for global tracking of commercial ships.
e-GEOS and exactEarth have signed a partnership agreement , at the Farnborough show.
SEonSE is based on an e-GEOS’ patent for the processing of satellite data, already used in many activities for maritime security and in international projects, like OCEAN2020, the European Defence Fund’s strategic research programme for naval surveillance technology and maritime safety.
Fostering networking opportunities and features a highly regarded industry and technology exhibition, focused on European needs. TechNet Europe 2018 will be organised in cooperation with the Italian chapters of AFCEA, Rome and Naples, and held under the patronage of the Ministry of Defence, Italy.
