  • Not breaking the ice | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    over Svalbard as the Norwegian Polar Institute s research ship R V Lance heads towards Longyearbyen It was assumed that a uniform ice cover blocked the entrance to Isfjorden so the Captain planned to take the direct red route However the synoptic view showed a safer quicker alternative green route through the ice Significantly the red route would have taken approximately six hours as the ship forced her way through the ice Instead the green route took only three hours just half the journey time Not only was the green route quicker saving three hours of fuel or 3000 Euros it was also safer Shipping traffic in the Arctic is increasing as people search for new resources oil and gas minerals fish etc new adventures tourism and new routes transportation as well as a need to gain a better understanding of the impact research expeditions and to minimise the impact of this increased activity Search and Rescue pollution control All of these activities can and do benefit from our ability to provide access to the latest images by saving fuel and so reduce emissions in the Arctic reduce maintenance costs save time and ultimately save money under safer operating conditions The end result will be that environmental impact is minimised and the time spent in ice infested waters is maximised Scientists have reported that they have collected more data when using the images to navigate through the ice field Today it is possible to overlay the geo referenced images with ship tracks and route suggestions In the future meteorological data will also be available In addition iceberg tracking ice edge detection and automatic ice classification projects will add further information to the service to provide more information to ships and oil rigs operating in ice What makes this service even

  • Pirate Watching | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    data was recorded onboard the satellite and downlinked as soon as within reach of one of the KSAT ground stations typically from 10 minutes till 80 minutes later The advantages of the KSAT polar network came apparent in this operational demonstration The KSAT Svalbard Satellite station is the only ground station in the world that has the posibility of receiving global data dump for all 14 orbits The anti piracy demonstration showed how an ideally located ground station could become a cost efficient substitute for multiple local receiving and processing facilities The analyses of the data showed that the satellite image vessel detections reproduces the marine traffic in the area the safe corridor lane in the Gulf of Aden is confirmed and in addition hot spots areas where vessels detected in the same position during a period of days or weeks are identified This can contribute to identify where hijacked vessels are held and furthermore it can also be used to confirm the release of a vessel the latter being especially important if the AIS is turned off A Norwegian chemical Tanker was hijacked 300 Nm off the Somali coast 26th March 2009 It was held near Hobyo before it was released 10th April The ORBCOMM SAT AIS data provided by LuxSpace showed that the chemical tanker was heading west towards the coast of Somalia when hijacked After the hijacking the tanker was forced north towards Hobyo before it was held in the same position close to the coast from 28th March and until it was released RADARSAT 2 images and a QuickBird image were acquired over the area and it was confirmed that tanker was in the position reported with SAT AIS Three other vessels were also found in the images close to the chemical tanker The Somali Piracy

  • Near real-time Maritime Monitoring | Kongsberg Satellite Services
    conditions and has therefore become one of the most important sensors for operational monitoring of the marine environment KSAT has developed a highly sophisticated service And supplies full analysis and report in less than 30 minutes in European areas today Global oil spill detection from the top of the world By state of the art technology and experienced operators Kongsberg Satellite Services KSAT provides satellite based monitoring and rapid reports of illegal discharges and accidental oil spills at sea with a 30 minutes time limit in Europe on average 200 analyzed scenes per month The KSAT oil spill detection service has been developed through 16 years and the service available today is a result from long term national Norwegian and international investments in developing a service strongly tailored to the end user needs Our integrated position with satellite owners the amount of satellites we operate the unique location close to both poles our highly skilled personnel and infrastructure has made our services highly efficient EMSA and Clean Sea Net KSAT with partners Telespazio Italy and EDISOFT Portugal provides a Pan European service to the European Maritime Safety Agency EMSA covering European waters and providing EU Member States with satellite based monitoring and rapid reports of illegal discharges and accidental oil spills at sea with a 30 minutes time limit For a more effective monitoring European pollution control authorities are planning their other surveillance activities dedicated aircraft equipped with radar SLAR and IR UV scanner and coastguard vessels in conjunction with the ordered satellite acquisitions This helps to optimize the use of coastguard vessels and surveillance aircrafts producing a more effective also cost effective surveillance plan Synthetic Aperture radar SAR SAR is an advanced satellite sensor that sends microwavestowards the earth s surface and recieves the signals reflected from the surface
