Mutual awareness for ocean prosperity: how do we share existing ocean surveillance information from space systems to equitably enrich all maritime nations by promoting good stewardship and safe conduct across the world's oceans?

Effective maritime situation awareness requires, by its very nature, global collaboration. The "Collaboration in Space for International Global Maritime Awareness" (C-SIGMA) undertaking looks to develop an unclassified Global Maritime Awareness system using existing commercial and civil space systems, and to make them synergistically more effective by fostering international partnerships and
collaboration. An efficient global maritime awareness system will not only increase security and promote trade, but also will enhanced safety of life at sea and provide greater protection of the maritime environment and its resources, benefiting the entire global community. Following on the Horizon 2020
proposal to improve tools for maritime surveillance, this session will focus on the collaborative nature of maritime situation awareness and how best to integrate European member states with other important global players to achieve these ends via the use of existing unclassified aerospace technology.
