EDISOFT launches Ocean Eye – the Ocean’s Permanent Watch

On the first semester of 2007, project Ocean Eye led by EDISOFT shall begin the supply of ocean monitoring data to the United States, using a facility that shall be installed next to ESA’s satellite station in Santa Maria, Azores.

Ocean Eye is thus the embryo of a fixed satellite station in Santa Maria, an initiative that shall bring to Portugal considerable scientific and economic advantages.
To observe, to monitor and to survey the entire North Atlantic is, indeed, Ocean Eye’s primary goal that, by ensuring the ocean’s permanent watch, allows an effective management of ocean resources, including the detection of maritime pollution in Portuguese waters and, in a broader reach, the monitoring of fishing activities, the detection of illegal ship activities and the mapping of wind and sea currents and temperature, especially in the North Atlantic.
Another Ocean Eye’s goal is to supply information to Santa Maria’s satellite station and several research and development programmes in this field.
