Quest for the Atlantic: New satellite images are arriving very soon



AFTER the active search for Croatian captain Dino Miskovic and other sailors missing in the Atlantic has been interrupted, new satellite images are eagerly awaiting.

The search is now in active observation phase, meaning that ships are no longer off course to search for missing seafarers, but rather intensely on their routes across the Atlantic.



Saturday satellite images of the Atlantic area where the missing seafarers may be located have shown nothing, and the family of Dino Miskic and everyone else concerned about the fate of the missing seafarers are now expecting new satellite images that should arrive very soon.

Maja Markovcic Kostelac, Executive Director of the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), spoke about this in the HRT Diary.

“Satellites are not cameras”

“The search is now in its second phase and we will continue to engage with satellite monitoring,” she said, adding that active monitoring means that all ships passing through the area are closely monitoring all available means on board and that this is indeed happening.

“Satellites are not cameras; they override the Earth's orbit in certain dynamics, and this area is unfortunately located in a zone where satellite traffic is relatively rare. We use two imaging modes – optical and radar (SAR). Both have good and bad. SAR radars give a broader but less accurate image and are not so good at searching for rubber objects. Optical radar provides something like photography, but in a narrower area, “explained Kostelac Markovcic.

How vast the area is best illustrated by the fact that the ocean surface is searched comparable to the surface of three Croatia, more than 1000 nautical miles from the nearest land.
