ICEYE Dark Vessel Detection Now Globally Available for Government Organizations


ICEYE offers its dark vessel detection solution now in a standardized data product format for maritime security authorities around the world. With the company's growing radar imaging satellite constellation, delivery timelines for new data continue to shrink.

HELSINKI, Jan. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ICEYE announced today the launch of its global Dark Vessel Detection solution for governmental maritime security customers. The unique solution combines synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) satellite data from ICEYE, and automatic identification system (AIS) data from vessels. Dark Vessel Detection is used as a source of actionable information for governments monitoring their Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ), day and night, and even through cloud cover.

"Dark Vessel Detection offered by ICEYE is built for governments around the world for improving the maritime safety of their regions," said Steve Young, Vice President, Business Development and Sales, ICEYE. "This unique solution enables authorities to take action based on reliable information. Data users can improve their enforcement activities against illegal transshipments of goods, help them in addressing illegal fishing, and assist in curbing drug and human trafficking."

Vessels engaged in illegal activities can choose to turn off their AIS transponders to avoid detection from authorities. ICEYE's Dark Vessel Detection service's core is built on the company's own radar imaging satellite constellation data, which provides a reliable source of information at all times of the day and in all weather conditions. ICEYE's customers have access to both location information and radar satellite images of all detectable vessels - even when they do not have their AIS transponders turned on.

"Our roadmap to achieve near-real time delivery capabilities for dark vessel data, on a global basis, is very short. With the introduction of our current standardized data format, actionable information is available already today."
