Project: Maritime Traffic Monitoring with TerraSAR-X

Acronym: VeXel
Main Objective: The Objectives of the Project are the Following:

1 - Study the potentialities of TerraSAR-X stripMap and scanSAR products to monitor maritime vessel traffic, namely to detect, to estimate cinematic parameters, and to classify moving vessels.

2- Adapt and develop new methods and algorithms aimed at the objectives listed above, taking advantage of the high geometric and radiometric resolutions of TerraSAR-X, in comparison, for example, with the ASAR and RADARSAR sensors.

3 - Build a prototype for for maritime traffic monitoring based on TerraSAR-X data.
