Sensors and systems

OceanEye - Aerostat

High quality footage from the sky

The OceanEye® provides 24/7 maritime aerial surveillance from fixed locations such as harbour areas and camps or moving vehicles. More adaptable in inclement weather than fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, drones or satellite sensing systems. OceanEye® downsizes crew and vessel requirements drastically, decreasing response operation costs.

Moored with a tether from the deployable BaseUnit, a weather-proof, helium filled Balloon carries a triple SensorUnit capable of producing high resolution day and night (EO/IR) imagery and geo-location with the embedded AIS (Automatic Identification System) receiver. Images and footage from the SensorUnit are transmitted wirelessly to the BaseUnit. With customized OverView software, a touch-screen ViewerTerminal displays daylight and infrared information for reconnaissance and rapid response. The real-time view and maritime chart with AIS overlay provide accurate information, targeting and geographic location of moving vessels, land lines and fixed installations.
