Description: Copernicus is a European Union Programme aimed at developing European information services based on satellite Earth Observation (EO) and in-situ (non-space) data. The European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) is the Entrusted Entity responsible for implementing the Copernicus Maritime Surveillance (CMS) service under a Delegation Agreement signed with the European Commission.
The CMS service provides satellite image and value-added products to support monitoring of human activity at sea for a range of functions, including amongst others: fisheries control, maritime safety and security, customs, law enforcement, marine environment pollution monitoring, and support to international organisations and other functions. The CMS service can be accessed by European Union (EU) and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) national administrations with responsibilities at sea, as well as relevant EU bodies and institutions.
The CMS service forms one component of the broader Integrated Maritime Services (IMS) approach offered by EMSA. This allows users to access other complementary data sets, such as vessel position reports, enabling them to combine data selectively to obtain information in the most useful way possible.
CMS offers users an extended geographical scope and enhanced range of high-quality earth observation and related information. Coverage can be provided in areas of European interest across the globe, with a variety of different resolutions and sensor types. In addition to image products, the service provides value-added products, including detection and classification of vessels, and activity detection.
The catalogue is divided into six chapters:
The first chapter of the catalogue describes the service scope and data policy.
The second chapter explains how to access the service, describes the types of service requests that can be made and provides an overview of service delivery.
The third chapter of the catalogue presents the EO image products available, both from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and optical satellites.
The fourth chapter of the catalogue describes the value-added products. This type of information is extracted from the images using algorithms developed for that specific purpose and is tailored to the end-users’ needs.
The fifth chapter provides information on the higher-level fusion products available.
The sixth chapter addresses some of the frequently asked questions posed by users.
