S&T has partnered with USCG to augment the USCG's ability to protect infrastructure and improve maritime safety and navigation in the Arctic region. TITANIC -- a project that seizes on the advancement and cost-effectiveness of satellite technology, as well as the evolution of machine learning -- seeks to combine the versatility of commercial Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery with the efficiency of computers. At the project's completion, TITANIC will enable the IIP to provide the maritime community and the general public with more reliable and timely maritime safety information on iceberg and sea ice conditions. TITANIC will also help reduce or eliminate the need for costly aerial ice surveillance missions, lowering monitoring costs, and freeing resources to be reallocated elsewhere.
