The TRIDENT project pursued rapid prototyping of a Satellite Earth Observation (SatEO) pre-operational application dedicated to the monitoring of ship recycling laws (and notably the EU Ship Recycling Regulation). During the first phase of the project the needs and requirements of the ship recycling community have been collected and, accordingly, a prototype architecture has been designed to create an application responding to the needs of this sector. The processes and models tested and validated have been integrated into the final TRIDENT Service prototype to support (i) the monitoring of ship recycling facilities and/or (ii) the monitoring of vessels required to comply with ship recycling legislation. Besides technological development, a Business Viability Analysis has been implemented to ensure the future development and deployment of the service in the next five years. The analysis includes (i) a market segmentation study of the addressable market for TRIDENT Services, (ii) an assessment of the market size and growth potential, (iii) a summary of the service value proposition offered to the community of user, (iv) a summary of the service value chain for the two approaches taken and (v) Service Cost Assessment (SCA). Based on the Business Viability Analysis, a roadmap has been defined including a deployment strategy that aims to smoothly and progressively train the community in charge of monitoring ship recycling activities to use SatEO data in their daily operations. The project involved a wide community of end users: INTERPOL-Environmental Crimes Unit, Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILET), Swedish Police, NGO Shipbreaking Platform, the International Ship Recycling Association (ISRA).
