Satellite technology provides sailors, emergency response officials and other marine operators the most accurate and fastest ways to determine their locations, measure speed and navigate. Oceanographers also use satellite data, such as that from the United States’ GPS system, to map navigational hazards and perform underwater surveying. The technology also helps fishermen and environmentalists track migrations, and fleets of commercial vessels have used satellite technology to ensure that they’re complying with regulations.
