Table of Contents

    Information derived from satellite-based observations supports operational maritime surveillance. The space community has several options available to support a response to these drivers. The workshop is a forum where agencies, research and development institutions and the space community can discuss priorities to ensure that future developments are optimised to ensure improvement in European maritime surveillance. This shall ensure effective transfer of lessons learned in exploiting satellite capabilities from one maritime surveillance community to another.
