Maritime safety and security is one of the most fundamental, critical and urgent goals of political agendas, as able to threaten, when at risk, in-country stability and international relationships. An accurate and real-time monitoring of seas and oceans is highly required to provide relevant organizations, governments and agencies with data and tools to support decision-making processes. From multi-sensor satellites to small-sats constellations, from emerging video to more standard optical and SAR data, from data fusion frameworks to single-dataset-based detectors, manifold are the remote sensing technologies, techniques and processing solutions able to support a safe navigation, the control of maritime traffic and borders, the detection of illegal activities, the prosecution of responsible parties, the marine environment safeguard.
Researchers in the field are invited to contribute to this special issue on Remote Sensing for Maritime Safety and Security with innovative and game-changing remote sensing solutions (in the technologies, techniques or data processing) in any of the maritime applications mentioned above.
