Fusing satellite imagery, AIS data, machine learning for maritime surveillance

9 December 2020 5:00 pm 6:00 pm SAST

UP42 will host a webinar on maritime monitoring and surveillance to discuss the integration of optical and radar satellite imagery with automatic identification system (AIS) ship tracking data for analysis using machine learning to monitor ports, manage fleets, and detect dark vessels. This webinar will be co-presented with exactEarth, Commonwealth Computer Research (CCRi) and, and will include a live Q&A session with presenters.

Aimed at solutions developers and data scientists working on monitoring solutions for commercial or defence organisations, attendees will learn how to build a fully integrated maritime surveillance solution, how to integrate optical imagery, SAR imagery, and AIS data, as well as how to access the right data sets and develop algorithms to build a geospatial solution.

The programme line-up includes:

  • Elizabeth Duffy of UP42: “Introduction to maritime surveillance”
  • Taylor Nicholls and Eric Nallon: “Building a port boundary layer using exactEarth’s AIS data and CCRi machine learning”
  • Dr. Markus Müller of UP42: “The Search for Dark Vessels: Fusing AIS Signals and Deep Learning-Based Ship Detection”
  • Dr. Ron Hagensieker of “Why is Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Interesting for Maritime Object Verification and Identification?”
