Satellite based oil spill detection services have been used operationally in Europe for more than a decade. KSAT provides these services to a variety of customers, from governmental agencies monitoring illegal ship discharges to the entirety of the offshore petroleum industry in Norway.
- Early warning
Our satellite based oil spill detection service provides an early warning of the presence of oil slicks on the sea surface and, combined with other information, assists end users in identifying possible sources. The data is analyzed by trained KSAT personnel and the results are disseminated through a dedicated web portal and early warning alerts.
- Groundbreaking development
The highly reliable KSAT service is the end result of iterative development which started over a decade ago. This utilization of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensor technology and the associated delivery chain of actionable information was developed in Norway and has evolved from a national to a multinational service – now available anywhere in the world.
- Tailored satellite service
KSAT is an independent service provider – we always focus on the end users best interest when matching the right mix of satellites to the end users needs. Acquisition selections are made based on requirements for temporal coverage, resolution, sensor and delivery time.
