Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Maritime Traffic Management: The ShipClassification model can be used by maritime traffic control centers to automatically identify and monitor ship activity in their vicinity, making it easier to manage traffic and ensure safety in high-density ship lanes.

  2. Military Surveillance: Armed forces can use the software to identify approaching vessels and verify their intentions, being particularly useful in identifying military ships. It can also be used to analyze satellites or drone imagery for larger geographical survey areas.

  3. Port Operations: Port authorities can utilize the model to identify incoming and outgoing cargo container ships, tankers, and RORO vessels to facilitate better logistics management, scheduling, and time efficiency in docking procedures.

  4. Environmental Conservation: Marine conservation organizations could use the ShipClassification model to monitor and identify tanker activities in sensitive environmental areas, enabling them to detect and respond to potential threats like oil spills more quickly.

  5. Travel and Hospitality Industry: Cruise companies and tourism agencies can employ the model to detect and track their cruise ships for real-time updates and safety purposes. It can also be used to create engaging experiences for customers by informing them about the various types of ships they may encounter during their cruise journey.
