| Potential end users
of SAR are those involved in industries and activities such as: offshore
oil and gas; wind and wave energy sitings; coastal fisheries; aquaculture;
mineral extraction; defence; pollution management; climate prediction; port
operations; marine engineering; dredging; coastal protection; ship-routeing;
tourism and public health; environment protection and preservation; research
and development etc. By identifying potential end users of SAR, the MARSAIS
project aims to:
In order to achieve these aims a fundamental component of the MARSAIS project is to consult potential end users via questionnaires, through user consultation workshops and through the establishment of a MARSAIS Advisory Group (MAG) and a MARSAIS User Group (MUG). The use of workshops will assist in educating potential end users to make better use of EO data and information. In this way, the applications of EO will be promoted, making them more widely understood in accordance with the RTD priorities of the Fifth Framework Programme.
One method of assessing end user requirements for SAR is through the use of a questionnaire survey, which is currently underway.
