Satellite technology for maritime security and safety

Satellite technology for maritime security and safety

Monday, 19 May, 2014 -
09:00 to 10:30

The workshop aims to describe to (existing and potential) users and policy makers how satellite-based technologies and Copernicus (the European Earth Observation programme) contribute to maritime security, safety, marine environmental protection and therefore to Blue Growth. The workshop will aim to communicate the results achieved in the framework of European Research and Development projects and to highlight the importance of these contributions towards a more integrated approach to the sharing of data, intersecting the fields of space technology and maritime surveillance.
