#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In real time, the device will be able to recognize the types of surfaces, the age of ice and identify vessels even with the transmitter of the AIS system (a system in shipping used to identify vessels) turned off.
“The invention relates to information space systems for integrated monitoring of the Earth. The system will include at least one spacecraft, a ground control complex, a complex for receiving and processing images”, TASS informs, citing documents from the Federal Institute of Industrial Property
The complex for receiving and processing images will have a built-in electronic system. It will process images and signals using neural networks.
“The use of neural network technologies makes it possible to obtain, on a time scale close to real, products with thematic processing, such as a comprehensive presentation of radar and optical images, automatic recognition of surface types, ice age, vessel recognition and identification of ‘dark’ vessels with a disabled AIS signal transmitter”, the institute documents explain.
The exact timing of the space system launch is not specified yet.
