MOORED BALLOON SYSTEM [MBS]
COST-EFFECTIVE AND RISK-REDUCING DATA ACQUISITION
TARGET AND TRACK IN REAL TIME WITH OCEANEYE®.
OceanEye® provides 24/7 maritime aerial surveillance from fixed locations or moving vehicles.
More enduring and adaptable in inclement weather than fixed-wing aircrafts, helicopters, drones or satellite sensing systems. OceanEye® downsizes crew and vessel requirements drastically and decrease 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 vessel positioning with the embedded AIS (Automatic Identification System) receiver. Images and video from the SensorUnit are transmitted wirelessly to the BaseUnit.
The OverView software installed on 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.
