25% of the world’s GDP is dependent on activities at sea. Yet there still aren’t suitable technologies to properly monitor this environment, leaving this large surface of the planet open to illegal activities.
An estimated 20% of the world’s fisheries are still made illegally in almost total impunity despite dramatic economical and environmental impacts.
Less controlled than land and air routes, drug trafficking at sea plagues certain areas of the globe. Searching for drug runner boats is like looking for a needle in a haystack without sustained monitoring.
Every year thousands fall victim to traffickers at sea, who often prey on desperate individuals to use them as forced labour for their other illegal activities.
Marine Protected Areas are unfortunately easy targets for illegal fishers. We can set up regular patrols at an unbeatable cost and send notifications and live evidence of infractions.
Territorial Waters Inspection
Many offences at sea go unpunished because local coast guards or police forces don’t have the resources to investigate every suspicious activity. We investigate potential incidents and send a live visual to authorities so that they can make a more informed decision and better allocate their resources.
Responsive Aerial Support
We also provide ad-hoc support for:
- aerial mapping
- pollution inspection
- disaster relief
