Help to identify ships


A system of classification/identification of ships from satellite (or aerial) images and a ship database would complement AIS data and would allow to detect anomalies.

This system could be used systematically on satellite/aerial images streams, or in a targeted way, for example for monitoring certain areas.


In order to meet this challenge, think about the potential services related to this system and the associated economic model (potential customers, etc.) by conducting a market study.

Depending on the services identified, design the system architecture and draft an outline of the solutions for classifying/identifying ships and providing information to help characterise them (position, direction of sail, etc.).
For example, you may want to use aerial satellite images or other images (e.g. via the French Sentinel collaborative ground segment platform - PEPS - operated by CNES - - or the Airbus Defence and Space “OneAtlas Sandbox” data base:

Determine the most promising technology (including artificial intelligence) and any technological limitations to be overcome.
