MARITIME PATROL AND SEARCH

Overwatch Imaging Oceanwatch makes over-water maritime patrol and search much more effective. The airborne imaging systems help organizations quickly search and find what they are looking for in vast stretches of ocean. It is ideal for long-range boat detection for counter-narcotics, fisheries management and enforcement, and search and rescue spotting.

Automatic maritime target detection

Oceanwatch is an image-based radar system that enables 100x faster search for small or long-range maritime objects than traditional maritime patrol systems that use video gimbals alone. The high-resolution cameras in Oceanwatch quickly find objects that are too small to detect with traditional radar systems. 

 

Our imaging system uses a purpose-built multi-camera gimbal with onboard AI software to automatically detect and locate objects of interest. 

Maritime surface search is much easier

With Oceanwatch, surveillance operators can focus on analyzing and responding to objects of interest and no longer need to stare at endless miles of empty sea.  The onboard AI software gets rid of excess ocean expanse from the imagery before transmitting it, which greatly reduces the bandwidth required for use of the system.

 

In addition, the AI software enables specific object classification, which allows fine-tuning of the system to detect or respond differently to specific types of vessels or other objects in the water.

 

Oceanwatch outputs the geolocation coordinates of detected objects in standard formats, enabling cross-cueing of video gimbals for additional object analysis.
