Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a tool to fight against pollution at sea
Radio Sintonia:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a tool to fight against pollution at sea.

Salvamento Marítimo will carry out the pilot test of its new intelligent system for its operations, developed in the iSAR project (Integral Program of Innovation in Maritime Rescue), in its units and coordination centers of the Canary Islands in the final weeks of June. The announcement and presentation of the system in the islands was made today at the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium in Las Palmas. The event was attended by the Government delegate in the Canary Islands, Anselmo Pestana, the deputy director general of safety, pollution and maritime inspection of the Merchant Marine, Ana Núñez and the director of Maritime Rescue, José Luis García Lena.

AI to improve rescue services
This test will be carried out after having incorporated "artificial intelligence" in several of its units on the islands to test new technologies and incorporate them, after analysis, in the rest of the units of the islands and throughout Spain.

The iSAR project, developed in a record time of 14 months, aims to improve the performance, effectiveness and efficiency of rescue services through innovation in the performance and capabilities of maritime, air units and coordination centers.

To achieve these objectives that will be tested in the Canary Islands, Maritime Rescue incorporates unmanned aircraft, new platforms and intelligent sensors capable of detecting shipwrecked people automatically in adverse Weather conditions, even at night; a high-capacity satellite communications system and a digital communications network connecting units deployed at sea.

It will also be possible to monitor toxic and hazardous atmospheres, air emissions from ships and pollution on the sea surface. These systems must operate within an emergency as an information network that allows information to be shared in real time.

Specifically, the new capabilities have been modified and incorporated into the Salvamar Macondo and the Guardamar Calíope, the Helimer 202, the Sasemar 103 aircraft, the coordination centers with the command and control stations (Santa Cruz, Las Palmas and Madrid) and 3 vessels connected to low orbit satellites (Salvamares Al Nair, Alpheratz and Mizar). Two drones will also be used.

iSAR is more Maritime Rescue.
It is a project that allows to help not only people, but also the planet within the context of climate change. This project optimizes the detection and rescue of shipwrecked people, the location and recovery of drifting objects that may pose a risk to navigation. But it also facilitates the identification of spills of hydrocarbons and other polluting substances on the surface of the sea and activates the
detection of harmful and dangerous atmospheres.

iSAR is a pioneering international project.
It will position itself as an international benchmark in the development and application of new technologies for search, rescue and the fight against pollution on the high seas.

iSAR is cutting-edge technology.
With this innovative project, Salvamento Marítimo will arrive sooner to lend you a hand if you are in danger at sea. This will reduce uncertainty and anguish for those rescued and their families.

The results of this technological deployment will be seen soon thanks to the tests that will be carried out in the Canary Islands. As soon as the iSAR project becomes operational, the time it takes to search for castaways will be significantly reduced. It will also increase the capacity to detect pollutants at sea and facilitate communication between the different units involved in an emergency.

The iSAR project, with a total budget of more than 20 million euros, has been co-financed by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda and 85% by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through a grant granted to the Ministry of Science and Innovation of more than 17 million euros.
