For the week of 02 April 2018
Letter from the Editor
Join us Tuesday, April 24, 2018 for a webinar on What can KSAT do for your MPA? KSAT's marine monitoring and data services. Presented by Paul Whitaker of KSAT.
Kongsberg Satellite Services (KSAT) is a Norwegian organization that operates a global network of satellite antennas, handling over 30,000 satellites passes per month from a diverse portfolio of sensors. With ground stations at both poles, KSAT is able to communicate with earth observation satellites every 40 minutes – including cloud-penetrating SAR (synthetic aperture radar), high-resolution optical (capable of identifying vessel types and specifics), and AIS (which can provide detailed information about vessel identities and route specifics when in use). As the number of satellites in orbit continues to grow exponentially, KSAT continues to serve as a single source for accessing information about the marine environment, including vessel information, from anywhere in the world in a matter of minutes. This webinar will provide an overview of KSAT’s services and then seek to learn more about the needs of the MPA community, including identifying potential partners for pilot projects to test the utility of KSAT’s services for managing MPAs.
