This paper presents a remote sensing monitoring system for maritime search and rescue (RS-MSR). This work is a part of our project-Vision Enhancement System for Maritime Search and Rescue. In this work, satellite remote sensing imageries of large scale water area are acquired to detect and locate for guiding the search operation. Some important data such as current and sea state are retrieved to help decision-making of the operation. A remote sensing monitoring system can, to some extent, overcome the shortcomings and inadequacies of human eyes. It can also improve the searching speed and accuracy, and is of significance in promoting rescue success rate and efficiency.
