A large number of markets need today a reliable, effective maritime surveillance system. ASV modules provide an essential additional component making it possible to address the limitations of current systems, and can be integrated into a vision, surveillance or security system to support the following types of users:
Navy, coastguard, police, customs, maritime and river authorities
Shipowners, specialised ships, cruise lines, tugs, response vessels
Offshore platforms, wind farms, FPSO, FLNG
Ports and sensitive infrastructures
Harbour masters’ offices, terminals, anchorage areas, protected zones
Pleasure and recreation
Yachts, mega-yachts, marinas, beaches, hotels and resorts
Scientists (marine life), protected marine areas
ASV software modules make it possible to address a very large number of maritime surveillance requirements in civilian, military, scientific and recreational markets.
Coastal surveillance and monitoring of maritime or river approaches
- Detection of sea targets as part of activities intended to prevent clandestine immigration, trafficking and smuggling.
Protection of ports and critical infrastructures
- Surveillance of the nautical perimeter for critical installations such as airports, nuclear power plants, oil/container terminals, etc.
- Prevention of intrusion and malicious acts
Maritime and river security
- Detection of short- or medium-range sea targets as part of activities intended to prevent piracy, terrorism, clandestine immigration, trafficking, smuggling, etc.
Maritime and river safety
- Collision prevention
- Detection of man overboard
- Searches for semi-submerged objects, mines, buoys, hazards, etc.
Surveillance of offshore platforms
- Enforcement of exclusion zones around platforms
Surveillance of marinas, beaches and bathing and aquatic areas
Search and detection of marine mammals appearing on the surface of the water
Search and detection of icebergs and growlers
Please ask for more information if you think that ASV could provide a solution to meet your needs.
Strengthen your surveillance capabilities
Complement traditional surveillance systems (radar, AIS, human watch) with a network of intelligent cameras to provide a reliable and continuous monitoring of your surroundings. The ASV-DET module allows to see in situations where traditional sensors show their limitations: very small objects (buoys, floating debris) or non-cooperative (jet-skis, kayaks, non-reflective hulls). The ASV software suite reinforces simply, without no additional human resource, your capacity of maritime watch, detection and alert, for a greater surveillance efficiency.
Improve your warning notice
Detect automatically an asymmetrical threat, as soon as it is viewed by the camera, and even at night, thanks to the thermal imaging performance. The detection capability of the ASV-DET, from two pixels, provides the surveillance team with valuable information, sometimes even before threats are seen by the watch. This early warning gives more time to prepare for an appropriate response.
Protect your assets and your people
Improving protection for your people (piracy, hostage taking), merchandises (theft) and infrastructures (intrusion, damage) is a permament preoccupation – news stories provide a daily reminder that you always need to be vigilant. The ASV-DET and ASV-SERVO modules make it possible to improve the effectiveness of cameras in order to increase the potential for detecting an event or incident that could cause damage to your assets or your people, as early as possible.
Prevent the risk of collision
Increase your short-range detection capability using an additional intelligent sensor. A camera connected to the ASV-DET module allows you to see what traditional sensors do not: very small objects at short distances. The ASV software suite reinforces simply and with no additional human resource your ability to avoid collisions at sea.
Improve your chances of finding a man overboard using the ASV software modules in Search And Rescue (SAR) mode. The ASV-DET module automatically detects a person falling overboard or in the water and the ASV-SERVO module immediately assigns a camera or spotlight on any object detected.
