|Abstract:||One of the key aim of ARGOMARINE focuses on the development of a platform to integrate different maritime data (such as metoceanographic data, transport data, pollution data, etc). Major national organizations such as Navies and Coast Guards are aiming to integrate different types of information to define a maritime picture on a wide scale. This entails developing complex, expensive and classified "hubs" to collect, store, analyze and disseminate the maritime data. ARGOMARINE plans to develop a Marine Information System (MIS), a connected group of ICT subsystems performing data storage, mining and analysis, decision-support, as well as a web-GIS portal for the access and usage of the products and services released to System Managers and end-users. MIS will integrate remote sensing data, field experiment results, forecast models with tools for data storage and retrieval, data manipulation, analysis and presentation; all these features will be accessible through a common interface. Operationally, the following sub-systems have been confirmed for the MIS platform: SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) image processing, hyperspectral-thermal image analysis, mathematical simulation for forecast models, dynamic risk maps management, Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) management and data analysis, marine traffic monitoring through Automatic Identification System (AIS), Environmental Decision Support (EDS), and data mining/warehousing through operational and historical databases. Data integration of all data from these different systems is an innovative approach to maritime surveillance.|
