ESA: Maritime traffic safer with ESAIL

In the early hours of June 19, Vega launches from Kourou carrying a payload of several satellites. These delivered into orbit by a new multi-payload system developed by ESA. Among them small satellites,  E-SAIL.

This microsatellite dedicated to supporting maritime traffic and making seafaring safer. It’s part of ESA’s SAT-AIS programme and aims to increase the coverage of the Automatic Identification System for ships.

This system is a short-range coastal tracking system currently used on ships with a limited range. With microsatellites from the SAT-AIS programme such as E-SAIL maritime shipping can be made safer across the oceans.

Amazing to learn about these microsatellites.
