The Integration Of Small Satellites In Maritime Interdiction Operations (MIO)
MetadataShow full item record
The open sea is an area where numerous legal activities occur such as trade, transportation, and scientific research; but it is also a place that attracts persons with illegal, criminal, and terrorist intentions. Naval nations, often acting in alliance, conduct operations to stop this illegal activity. Maritime-interdiction operations (MIO) are the usual type of operation employed, and, because of their nature, require robust communications and uninterrupted flow of information. Establishing communications and networks in the open seas via terrestrial means is possible only in certain areas and it is not feasible around the clock. Therefore, the distribution of the data and information needed for maritime-interdiction operations is significantly limited as to speed, accuracy and efficiency. This thesis examines how small satellites in general can be integrated in MIO ad hoc networks and how their advantages and disadvantages affect the flow of information among the nodes.
