This year’s Multimedia Contest Secure Your Future, hosted by The Hague Security Delta, focuses on the use of satellite data in order to increase our security.
Your smartphone is equipped with GPS, Google Maps allows you to look up various areas across the globe and the internet makes use satellite data. Up until now, most satellites were owned by either the United States or by Russia. However, in more recent times, Europe has launched a series of satellites of their own. Galileo continuously sends signals and data to earth, useful for a variety of applications, such as optical-, GPS- and remote sensing signals.
The possibilities are endless and of great value in order to protect our critical infrastructures. Vital infrastructure are products, services, and processes that are of utmost importance to our society. Incapacitation or destruction of these infrastructures could cause massive societal or economic disruption. Repairing such critical infrastructures can be rather time-consuming, as the amount of alternatives are generally limited. Given the importance of critical infrastructures, this year’s contest focuses on two security domains:
The accumulation of data coming from satellites, drones or other unmanned aerial vehicles could be enormously beneficial to various actors. Satellite data are vital in order to control drones, while drones are better equipped to gather data, for example, during cloudy weather. Additionally, drones tend to be less expensive than satellites, especially when a geographically-limited area needs to be monitored.
