    satellite data and information from the Northern areas So we anticpate an increasing demand for our data and services provided that shipping activities continue to increase In addition to delivering data to other providers we also will be responsible for establishing a new Global Monitoring for Environment and Security GMES service that will provide access to ice information for vessels operating in ice infested waters in the North and in the Baltic This represents an important step towards bringing today s existing ice information to the navigation systems on board user vessels The alarming upswing in piracy in the Gulf of Aden and now also in the Indian Ocean create an increasing threat to civilian shipping Naval forces now are deployed in the areas to protect civilian vessels But traditional technologies are inadequate to maintain updated information about the vessel traffic in these large ocean areas Use of satellite based services as an additional source of information has therefore been evaluated through dedicated campaigns like the PIRASAT campaigns in the Gulf of Aden under the responsibility of the European Maritime Safety Agency EMSA located in Lisbon The aim was to evaluate whether satellite technology could be used to identify small vessels that likely could be pirates KSAT is the prime partner for the European service industry and coordinated the service operations towards EMSA The outcomes of these campaigns are now being evaluated in cooperation with the naval forces and there are plans for conducting new campaigns in 2011 KSAT will have a lead role also in the new campaigns in which we expect that our new mid latitude network of ground stations will play in increasing role Our MSA service elements have been established in cooperation and with commitment from European users including coast guards defence offshore oil and gas industry Their involvement and validation of our service has provided valuable feedback for continually improving the services Our first versions used the correlation between satellite imagery and non imagery information such as AIS to identify vessels in the coastal zone out to 60 80 kilometrer off the coast However end users also should be able to identify vessels in open oceans and in areas with no operational AIS chains Hence Satellite AIS has become an important additional source of information to extend our service to those areas In July 2010 Norway launched its first AIS satellite AISSAT 1 KSAT is providing operational support to this satellite in all areas Telemetry Tracking and Control TT C Data Reception and Mission Control Centre functions At the same time our maritime services has been brought another step forward by the availability of satellite AIS data from this satellite and from a few other demonstrational AIS missions Through our cooperation with the Norwegian Coastal Directorate and the Norwegian Defence Research Institute FFI we have demonstrated how satellite AIS data could be used to identify hijacked vessels off the coast of Africa These examples have found global interest and we are now in a dialogue

    convention of 1973 and 1978 As for all regulatory measures the effectiveness of these laws depended on their being enforced Technical requirements such as double hulls for tanker newbuildings were readily enforceable by inspection and certification of vessels Operational requirements such as preventing spills depended on monitoring which was difficult given the immensity of the seas ERS 1 changed that For the first time regulatory agencies had a reliable means of detecting spills and catching polluting offenders Within three years TSS had developed an oil spill detection service chain that could provide information to European regulatory agencies Four years thereafter in 1998 the service was fully operational and was made available internationally By mid 2002 the Norwegian Space Centre the Government Space Agency together with the Kongsberg Group a diversified high tech company based in Norway had founded Kongsberg Satellite KSAT and merged it with TSS and further expand its increasingly international services Development followed apace The Pollution Control Authorities in the Nordic countries Denmark Finland Norway and Sweden initiated cooperation in the uses of satellite data Accordingly KSAT developed the national service model into a multinational service tool In turn that brought about the pan European oil spill detection service that was initiated in 2006 by the European Maritime Safety Agency EMSA The service then was implemented by a consortium led by KSAT and comprising also e GEOS of Italy and EDISOFT of Portugal and was launched in April 2007 The European Oil Spill Detection Service was developed in cooperation with its users including the Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies NOFO the Norwegian Coastal Administration the Swedish Coast Guard the Finnish Environmental Institute SYKE the Admiral Danish Fleet and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency MCA of the UK It now covers all European waters and is provided

  • TrollSat Connects the Globe | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    clients may receive data and perform control every 45 minutes This capability offers two advantages for polar orbiting satellites 1 Significant reduction of the time latency to provide payload data and processed information to the end user and 2 Increased downlink capacity to ground which significantly eases onboard constraints on data storage and data transmission Another significant aspect is the full integration of TrollSat into the KSAT ground network which provides flexibility to users KSAT now can schedule a mission support at all three stations Svalbard Tromsø and Antarctica Using interoperable solutions KSAT can shift satellite contacts between various antennas on a site or between sites If say a satellite operator would like to rearrange contacts between sites and antennas or if a user would like to have more frequent contacts all that need be done is to contact the Network Operations Centre and the shifts will be made within a few hours Moreover TrollSat has become an important site in the Galileo navigational satellite station network and its location is ideal for similar global network operators that require a southern hemisphere station Reliable Operations in a challenging environment Antarctica is the world s southernmost fifth largest and most remote and hostile continent So though the continent is well mapped and there now are many facilities there and despite KSAT having comparable experience in the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic setting up TrollSat was a formidable challenge KSAT is proud that the challenge was successfully met without any significant incidents and that TrollSat now is a fully operational high quality ground station TrollSat is collocated with the Norwegian Polar Institute Institute NPI research station in Queen Maud Land sheltered by the surrounding mountains The station is one of very few facilities on Antarctica that are staffed 24 7 year round
