The data will be integrated into EMSA’s SAT-AIS services, which aims to improve global vessel traffic monitoring with a focus on areas like polar regions where terrestrial AIS network coverage is limited. EMSA’s SAT-AIS data services play a critical role in monitoring vessel traffic by acquiring data beyond the reach of terrestrial AIS network coverage to facilitate worldwide vessel monitoring. Spire’s data will play a key role in enhancing global vessel tracking and maritime domain awareness, supporting EMSA’s mission.
