Maritime Observatory

The Maritime Observatory is a partnership between the Maritime Archaeology Sea Trust (MAST) and OceanMind. It was established to detect and deter looting of archaeological heritage and naval war graves globally.  With this technology and IP there is potential to track all sorts of behaviours across the world from Illegal fishing, environmental damage from potentially leaking wrecks (oil or ordnance), looting or naval war graves and archaeological sites. They currently are working with one European Government and are talking to others. They are keen to get this information out there to as many people as possible and would welcome notification of any “suspicious activity at sea" (in confidence) and would be grateful for anyone who might consider helping them with much needed funding to scale up their monitoring.
