Simularity AI-ADS Anomaly Case Study – Oman/Yemen Border

We were looking for weapons smuggling activity into Yemen, which is rumoured to originate from Iran through Oman and across the border S. of Saudi Arabia into Yemen. We ran some imagery (courtesy of Digital/globe) through AI-ADS and discoved what appears to be an unusual construction activity just over 1.5 km East of the Oman – Yemen border.
