SES enables EMSA’s environmental protection service in Iceland

Icelandic maritime authorities are utilising the European Maritime Safety Agency’s (EMSA) Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) portfolio enabled by SES Networks’ managed connectivity services to support the country’s requirements for environmental protection and fisheries control.

The connected ELBIT HERMES 900 RPAS will perform maritime surveillance tasks in areas extending as far as 200 nautical miles from the shoreline. This ensures important areas of the Icelandic Exclusive Economic Zone are covered with missions lasting as long as 12 hours. SES Networks’ connectivity is utilised for this Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) RPAS to empower multiple Icelandic authorities – such as the Icelandic coast guard, the fisheries directorate, the environment agency, the customs directorate, and the search and rescue association – to remotely follow the missions via a dedicated data centre and to ensure timely decision-making.
