Maritime

Maritime1Satellites have been integral to maritime navigation and weather forecasting for decades. But as we move into a new era of automation, increasingly sophisticated analytics applied to rich satellite data streams , and easier access to capabilities, how can the maritime community position itself to take full advantage of these opportunities to increase competitive edge?

For example, NASA will increase effectiveness of AIS (Automatic Identification Systems) with new instruments to be placed on the International Space Station. Ocean-going vessels have many challenges in common with deep space missions, such as remote medicine and operational maintenance. How are NASA and other industry sectors applying advanced applications of LIDAR scanning (originally used to map the surface of the Moon) for security, collision avoidance, and search and rescue.

SpaceCom helps attendees from the maritime industry discover new applications, as well as explore how their technologies can apply to NASA challenges and those of other industries like agriculture, energy, and medical.
