The Space-Eyes online portal is powered by CATE™ (Computer Assisted Threat Evaluation) technology. The CATE™ technology was recognized in 2006 and 2018 for innovation by IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). The portal aggregates maritime data from multiple geospatial, non-spatial, structured and unstructured sources.
To further extrapolate, we integrate maritime, satellite and governance data into a single source and apply Artificial Intelligence, Domain Rules, Suspicion Indicators, Anomaly Detection and Predictive Analytics.
This capability acts as an intelligence force multiplier that can aid the military commander or maritime law enforcement chief, in greatly narrowing down areas or vessels of interest to be focused on by other limited airborne reconnaissance assets.
The result of the analysis identifies nefarious activities in the maritime domain and potential asymmetric threats. The analysis is done on the Amazon cloud and an online portal allows the user to disseminate the data over a Chrome Browser. User can get alerts on their mobile device. Customers with portal credentials have the option to use API's for third party applications.
The Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite is able to provide Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS). It has a wide swath that can map 400 km x 1200 km in maritime mode on a 3 minute duty cycle. It is able to identify non-compliant ‘Dark Objects’.
The satellite is tasked the previous day from our facilities in USA. The data is down loaded onto the Amazon Cloud (AWS), automatically integrated with other data, analyzed and disseminated online via our maritime analytics portal. This data is very valuable in tipping and cueing non-compliant ‘Dark Objects’.
The Space-Eyes online portal further accesses and automatically integrates data from the AIRBUS managed One Atlas library. The online portal is dynamically updated from federated space sensors near real-time 24/7.
The first optical satellite is able to provide provides 22m/pixel multispectral imagery with a very wide (650-km) swath, assuring very-high-frequency revisit on large areas. This is very good for our Broad Area Maritime Surveillance offering. The second optical satellite is very agile designed for cost-effective, dependable very-high-resolution EO applications. Providing 75-cm pan-sharpened images, it is the one of the very few privately owned sub-metric satellites in the world.
The data is downloaded from a global network of five ground stations which assures at least a contact every orbit with all satellites, and therefore the capacity of commanding and downloading data every 90 minutes. The data is then uploaded onto the Amazon Cloud (AWS) where it automatically integrated with other data, analyzed and disseminated online via our maritime analytics portal.
This data is very valuable in validating non-compliant ‘Dark Object’ identified. The Space-Eyes online portal further accesses and automatically integrates data from the AIRBUS managed One Atlas library. The online portal further is dynamically updated from federated space sensors near real-time 24/7.
The use of AIS Satellite data is quite prevalent in the industry. An AIS receiver is collocated on the SAR satellite and is able to discern all compliant and non-compliant traffic.
The Space-Eyes online portal further accesses and integrates live data feeds from established industry suppliers such as Orbcomm and emerging suppliers such as Spire with high frequency revisit rates.
The online portal receives updates every 7-15 seconds on tens of thousands of surface crafts from Class A and Class B transmitters globally. These data feeds are augmented by coastal AIS stations that capture AIS data from ships in the line of sight.
The Space-Eyes online portal is powered by CATE™ (Computer Assisted Threat Evaluation) technology that ingests maritime data from numerous sources. These data attributes address disciplines such as Compliance, Safety, Security, Law Enforcement, EEZ and Domain Awareness, Governance, Sanctions, Proliferation, Media etc.
The latency of this data spans minutes to weeks and is fragmented across numerous stakeholders hence not easily located. Some data is available online via RSS feeds, some offline not digitized, some restricted by privacy, some only available via subscription.
The advent and utilization of Non-Conventional Sized Ships under BIMP-EAGA (as a subset of ASEAN) in the South China Sea has led to an additional burden on compliance, governance and sanction enforcement. These ships fall below the IMO (International Maritime Organization) threshold but are routinely used in near sea and coastal trades. Due to the nature of the remoteness in places like the Sulu Sea this also facilitates asymmetric threats.
