This project, the Next Generation Recognised Maritime Picture (RMP) project is funded through the European Space Agency’s Integrated Applications Promotion (IAP) Programme.

The project aims to greatly enhance the quality and accuracy of the recognised maritime picture for the Irish Naval Services through firstly integration of several additional data sources not currently used to generate an RMP.

One of the key data sources will be satellite AIS (Automatic Identification System). Within this project through the application of state of the art data mining, data analysis and simulations it will be possible to provide for early identification of unusual behaviour of vessels and alerting RMP operators for planning of future investigation of these vessels by the Irish Naval Service.

Our project partners are:

  • Skytek
  • University College Cork
  • Irish Naval Service
  • Luxspace
