From terrorism to refugees to regional tensions – there’s plenty to keep Indians up at night. With that in mind, the country has, in recent years, redoubled its efforts to protect its seas and coastline, enhancing its maritime domain awareness, rapidly adopting new technologies and analytics.
Against this backdrop, comes the first edition of the India Maritime Threat Map. It reveals some of the anomalies found when applying AI-driven, behavioral analysis to vessels, enabling organizations to anticipate threats, and stay ahead of their adversaries. Key findings, include:
Increasing activity by foreign surveillance vessels in the Bay of Bengal.
Large number of vessels crossing the Arabian Sea with armed guards aboard, to protect against piracy.
Prevalence of journeys indicative of illicit activity, such as drug smuggling.
