Optical/SAR data and system Integration for Rush Identification of Ship models
The O.S.I.R.I.S. project (Optical/SAR data and system Integration for Rush Identification of Ship models) is designed to qualify as activities within the General Support Technology Programme (GSTP), part of the Action "Supporting an innovative and competitive." This action supports projects of international partnership mostly private type (industry and operators), and makes possible the development of new technologies for ESA missions.
The O.S.I.R.I.S. project aims at designing and implementing an innovative technology platform for applications and data-integration methodologies Optical / SAR, dedicated to the monitoring of the marine environment and maritime safety. This context, both at the application that at research level, is in great development since it is more and more increasing demand for land monitoring services, environmental planning and prevention of natural and anthropic, that requires the processing of Earth Observation data for different types of sensor (optical, SAR, thermal) or of spatial resolution. The technology platform O.S.I.R.I.S. will be initially based on the integration of optical high resolution satellite data (EROS-B – and EROS-C if available) and SAR (COSMO-SkyMed) currently operating and, subsequently, will be adapted to allow the use of the different types of data and processing available with the constellation of ESA's Sentinel satellites.
