Abstract
This document is the Final Report deliverable under ESTEC Contract No. 21303/07/NL/CB “GMES Sentinel-1 analysis of marine applications potential (AMAP)”. The document includes ship detectability modelling that has been carried out for Sentinel-1, including development of a ship detectability tool that applies to Sentinel-1, RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2, and Envisat ASAR image data. Limitations of the tool’s predictions are discussed, and examples from RADARSAT-1 and Envisat ASAR are provided to illustrate the performance of the tool. Also considered is Sentinel-1’s expected capability for other maritime applications, including iceberg detection, wind retrieval, oil spill detection, sea ice surveillance, and ship wake detection. In general, the Interferometric Wide Swath mode with its high spatial resolution and 250 km swath will be a useful mode for maritime surveillance in the littoral zone.
