Get Rapid Alerts on Key Developments in the South China Sea

Simularity is launching the South China Sea Rapid Alert Platform.  With this free service, you will receive email alerts when any anomalies are detected in the South China Sea.  

Territorial disputes in the South China Sea involve both island and maritime claims among several states in the region, namely Brunei, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. In 2020, activity has picked up in this contested area. Asia Times reports “China has conducted military drills and deployed large-scale military assets to the maritime area while at the same time officially celebrating strides made in exploiting disputed energy resources in the fossil fuel-rich sea.” 

Simularity’s Automated Image Anomaly Detection System (AIADS), uses artificial intelligence to analyze new satellite-based imagery in a historical context, identifying changes that diverge significantly from historical norms.  Using AIADS, Simularity is analyzing new, publicly available Sentinel 2 imagery of the South China Sea as it arrives, and alerting subscribers to our service to any relevant anomalies detected, such as human activity, construction, dredging, and reclamation.

Join the South China Sea Rapid Alert Platform, so you can:

  • Receive alerts as soon as a change is detected
  • View detected anomalies on interactive maps similar to the one below – no GIS software or experience required!
