Airbus upgrades OceanFinder

23rd September 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus Defence and Space has upgraded its OceanFinder digital maritime service to introduce new features for the detection, identification and tracking of collaborative and non-collaborative vessels around the globe.

OceanFinder combines data collected from optical and radar satellites, real-time global Automatic Identification System (AIS) data and automated analytics to support a broad range of applications across maritime defence and security.

The new updates to the system enable users to benefit from enhanced imagery and AIS data correlation to identify the precise location of a non-responding vessel in near real-time. This development has been combined with new fully-automated detection and classification capabilities in order to determine a vessel’s identity in just a few seconds.

With these updates, analysts are able to focus on providing additional, value-added intelligence, such as interpretation of specific behaviour or threats, without delaying report delivery. New tools have also been incorporated to provide relevant acquisition plan to predict routes and projected locations of vessels, based on last position, date, trajectory and speed. 

Several of the new features have been made possible through a multi-year partnership with exactEarth which provides OceanFinder with access to exactView RT – exactEarth’s second-generation real-time satellite-AIS data platform – including all live and archived data.
