Drug Trafficking

Dark shipping tactics like AIS manipulation and spoofing often go hand-in-hand with maritime drug trafficking, and depending on the cargo's origin and the organizations involved, more complex strategies can be used to send shipments under the radar. 

Criminal organizations use everything from commercial cargo boats to narco submarines to get their products across borders, and these operations commonly involve murder, weapons trade, and human trafficking.  


While trafficking drugs by sea is anything but new, drug trafficking methods constantly evolve, keeping maritime authorities on their toes and navigating new solutions.


To fight the problem efficiently, authorities must arm themselves with tools and resources that can keep up with the evolution of maritime drug smuggling, and space-based solutions offer insights that few others can.
