Gabban, A. Mallorqui, J. TNO Defensie en Veiligheid Publication year 2008 Abstract About one year of coastal AIS (Automatic Identification System) data are analysed for vessel behaviour. The data are obtained from thousands of vessels along the Dutch North Sea coast including the entrance to the main port of Rotterdam. Vessel behaviour is described by a number of basic indicators that can be obtained directly from the AIS messages or from other sensors like radar. It is investigated here if the indicators may be used in e.g. classification algorithms to detect suspicious vessels for the purpose of maritime and border security. In addition, the AIS data are used for a preliminary assessment of the vessel detection possibilities of the recently launched TerraSAR-X satellite when operating in ScanSAR mode.
