Marine Spill Response Corporation
What was the problem MSRC needed solved? MSRC was looking for an aerial sensor versatile enough to handle a diverse mission set, prioritizing their focus of detecting and responding to oil spill events while expanding surveillance capabilities into wildfire and natural disaster response platforms. After extensive field testing, it became apparent that Overwatch Imaging’s TK-7 sensor was the right fit.
Summary: “The Overwatch team was extremely accommodating as we worked through the contract terms and equipment delivery process. The outstanding support and training offered by the Overwatch team allowed us to hit the ground running in support of the 2021 fire season on the west coast.
We continue to work with Overwatch to enhance the algorithms in support of a multitude of other missions.”
Looking forward: MSRC and Overwatch are collaborating on advancements for early detection and classification of oil on water, wildlife surveillance, hurricane response, and disaster management, as well as working to grow a robust fire response in support of the wildfire management programs.
