High-Resolution Cameras in Space for a European Maritime Surveillance System

Observe the Earth from space to improve the defense of the European Union. With this objective in mind, UF startup and UF Innovate | The Hub resident company SATLANTIS, a provider of high-performance payload technologies for Earth observation and remote sensing, is leading a European project to develop critical technologies with which to implement a maritime surveillance mission. Specifically, an advanced optomechanical system, an agile attitude control system, a real-time detection filter, and a high data rate transceiver are being created for downloading information.

With this marine monitoring, the system will be used to monitor the coastline for drug trafficking, smuggling or illegal fishing, even humanitarian aid missions for immigration through the Mediterranean. “The challenge is to create a kind of intensive digital supervision bar in critical areas such as the southern Mediterranean, the Baltic or the vertical line of the Atlantic,” Juan Tomás Hernani, CEO of SATLANTIS, explains.
