What Do You Want To Know?

New entrants into the Earth Observation industry have made it cheaper and easier to provide images, and even video, of Earth from Space. Chorosworks collaborates with these new providers, as well as established providers, in order to provide more affordable and up-to-date imagery than ever before. Our online ordering system makes it easy for customers to order their imagery, and our use of virtual satellite constellations makes it possible for revisit frequencies to be measured in hours instead of days.

FarEarth Maritime Monitoring Services

Maritime Monitoring Service offers access to an online portal providing users with the ability to monitor coasts, fisheries, exclusive economic zones, continental shelfs and beyond. The service provides the use of optical and radar satellites to detect and identify vessels located in imagery and reported by geographical location (latitude/longitude), vessel dimensions, heading and approximate speed.

Vessels detected are correlated with space - and ground - based Automatic Identification Systems (AIS), Vessel Management Systems (VMS) and other available sources, non-reporting and non-compliant vessels highlighted, monitored and reported.

Vessel Event Notifications are automatically dispatached to users via SMS, Email, Internet and Voice. Authorities receive full-resolution satellite browse images of ships and associated description in near-time to assist with response planning
