  • New GMES sea ice information service being established | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    Baltic Sea The service will provide continuous and accurate up to date information on the ice conditions in these regions including the location movement and forecast of icebergs In particular the project has been set up to support safe passage through the Arctic Ocean in the summer months This route would drastically shorten the shipping distance between Europe and far east Asia by some 6000 km leading to substantial savings in time fuel and CO2 emissions ICEMAR will establish an information system which will allow the users to retrieve all available ice products for relevant areas and display them in the ship s electronic chart display The system will also be accessible in areas with only minimum internet connections The project will build on existing ice service elements including GMES services and projects national regional institutional and commercial services The ICEMAR service will be established in an open and expansible way to facilitate the easy inclusion of additional information services as they become available and coverage of new geographical regions in the future The ICEMAR project will start this week with a meeting of the service consortium in Copenhagen Kongsberg Satellite Services KSAT Norway Project co ordinator British Antarctic Survey

  • New Oil Monitoring research project coordinated by KSAT | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    damage to the marine environment and may also have a large financial impact Use of satellite radar data has proven to be an efficient tool to assist the national authorities in detecting potential oil slicks and locate polluters Geographical position of potential oil spills is reported from the data and forms the basis for the end users decision on further investigation e g by patrol boats and aerial surveillance Fast detection and warning of oil slick at sea is crucial as it allows pollution control authorities to initiate actions before the oil drift on shore Todays service for the European Maritime Safety Agency EMSA has been developed and is provided by Kongsberg Satellite Services KSAT e GEOS EDISOFT and CLS The overall objective of the SeaU project is to improve the current state of the art methodology for satellite based oil spill detection and monitoring and demonstrate through deliveries to existing and new users how these improvements can contribute to the development of a next generation sustainable downstream service The SeaU project will in close cooperation with existing and new users establish an interface for integration of multi disciplinary information in accordance with relevant standards and directives and improve the oil detection methodology in compliance with user requirements It will include multidisciplinary data and information e g space born radar and optical data and other environmental data such as vulnerable areas bird cliffs etc Another part of the project is to improve source detection and identification of polluters with user of land based and space born sensors AIS LRIT and also implement oil drift models in the operational service In close cooperation with existing and new users the project will result in new and improved operational oil monitoring service for end users in Europe The SeaU project had technical kick
