Goals

Gain an understanding of the maritime tracking industry with a specific focus on cameras, including the global market size with a breakdown for the top three largest markets (likely US, Europe, and Canada), the largest customers for this type of product, the five industries/organizations which are spending the most on maritime tracking, what they're monitoring, which of them want to integrate/switch to smart vision-based surveillance, what their budget is for this type of product, and what the standard sales cycle is, and competitors in this space
