Delivering actionable intelligence for any vessel
Copernicus Blue is a Horizon 2020 project consortium of three companies. Together NSAS.aero, Vake.ai and Shipdetection.eu (legal name Lelieur BV) deliver near real-time vessel detections of non-cooperative and suspect ships to support customs and fisheries inspections as well as Coast Guard rescue missions and offshore asset protection surveillance.
By using automated algorithms in satellite imagery, Radio Frequency and AIS data together with vessel databases it is now possible to collect intelligence and evidence of any activity happening near ports, shorelines, around submarine cables and offshore installations such as wind parks.
Through continuous monitoring and early warning alerts we provide a fast response by organizing guided plane surveillance with long range video streaming over a satellite connection.
A platform for deep maritime insight, producing live alerts of high-risk vessels, and historical analysis of satellite imagery to track the past locations and activities of vessels for potential proof for prosecution.
Artificial intelligence and data fusion of SAR, optical satellite imagery, satellite Radio Frequency (RF) surveillance and AIS are used for hotspot detection and guidance on where this activity is happening by Vake and Shipdetection.eu.
Whereas the inspection, reconnaissance and in-situ video collection are a part of the operational services being delivered by the fleet of North Sea Aviation Services (NSAS) DA62 and DA42 MPP surveillance aircrafts.
