Fishing is an important part of the global economy and fish are a vital food source worldwide. But the management of fish stocks has become both a commercial and an environmental concern. Availability and sustainability of fisheries stocks have been put at risk, while at the same time, fisheries are facing ever higher costs and lower yields. Satellite communications and satellite navigation can enable unified timely and accurate collection, management, and use of marine fisheries data to provide value added services to fisheries stakeholders and enhance the sustainability of fisheries resources.

Agriculture & Farming

Precision agriculture is a farming management concept based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops. Crop variability typically has both a spatial and temporal component which involves both statistical and computational treatments. Practice of precision agriculture was enabled by development of GPS and GNSS systems. This satellite enabled crop monitoring is the technology which facilitates real-time crop vegetation index monitoring via spectral analysis of high resolution satellite images for different fields and crops which enable to track all the dynamics of crop development. The difference in vegetation index informs about single crop development disproportions that speaks for the necessity of additional agriculture works on particular field zones.

Satellite crop monitoring technology allows to perform online crop monitoring on different fields, located in different areas, regions, even countries and on different continents. The technology's significant advantage is a high automation level of sown area condition and its interpretation in an interactive map which can be read by different groups of users.

Being online has meanwhile become an absolute necessity for farmers who compete in a global marketplace. From checking the weather or crop prices to trading online or completing subsidy applications or submitting tax returns, satellite-enabled broadband Internet provides the perfect solution for rural connectivity for farmers.
