Vake automatically detects dark ships in satellite images. Ships that turn their AIS (ship tracking system) off commonly do so because they want to perform some illicit activity, such as illegal fishing, smuggling or covert military operations. With multispectral satellite images it is possible to apply deep neural networks to automatically detect and classify ships, ship sizes and direction, including dark vessels. Vake will help: - Create and independent control of the AIS - Identify hotspots for dark vessels - Identify areas exposed to spoofing attacks - as AIS is GPS-based, matching erroneous, spoofed AIS messages with the true location of the same vessels found in satellite images
