Safe Passage is a mapping system and alert service that will aid commercial, leisure and rescue craft navigating treacherous waterways worldwide. Using satellite data from Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2, Safe Passage maps dangerous estuaries and automatically detects changes in channel locations. This information is then shared with seafarers via Digital Navigation Charts.

Safe Passage is being developed in partnership with Nith Inshore Rescue, a volunteer lifeboat service based on the Solway Firth in the UK, to ensure it will immediately improve the safety of our coastal waters.
