Validation of oceansuite ship detection in RADARSAT-2 imagery with AISSat-1 space-based and MSSIS coastal AIS data [electronic resource] / by Nicholas Sandirasegaram [and others].
- Technical Memorandum ; 2013-119
- OceanSuite (OS) is a software developed by the Department of National Defence Canada to carry out ship detection on RADARSAT-2 images within operational timeframes. In this report, OS ship detections are validated using AISSat-1 and MSSIS (Maritime Safety and Security Information System) Automatic Identification System (AIS) data. AISSat-1 is a Norwegian nanosatellite that carries a space-based AIS payload. MSSIS contains AIS data from coastal-based AIS receivers. A total of 18 RADARSAT-2 data collections were executed for this evaluation. Validation was conducted according to a set of predefined validation criteria. The OS detector performance was quantified in terms of probability of detection and probability of false alarm metrics. Validation results and associations between AISSat-1 and MSSIS, AISSat-1 and OS, and MSSIS and OS are reported. There we 1482 validated ships of which OS-declared 65%. OS alone accounted for more than 21% of the validated ships.
