Maritime Security Patrol

Maritime Security Patrol

Maritime Security Patrol Semi autonomous and turnkey security solutions, designed and customized to a specific need, scenario, issue or group of issues. Maritime Security Patrol comes complete with UAV, smart sensors, payloads, hardware, mission planning, a tactical application, data fusion, a mission auditing tool, communications, maintenance, personnel, operators and pilots.

Maritime Security Patrol is an integrated Security and Surveillance system solution for the monitoring of coastal regions, territorial waters and Waterside Facilities such as Oil and Gas Platforms, Fish Farms, Ports And Harbors, Marine Monuments, Marine Sanctuaries and other critical waterside infrastructure sites. Furthermore, Maritime Security Patrol has been implemented by both commercial and government customers to support a wide range of security and surveillance applications.

The modular design of Maritime Patrol's hardware and software components provides an option-based solution that can be scaled and customized to fit most maritime security applications. The system is designed to detect, monitor, track and identify very small targets using the exclusive Furunu Detection Radar.

Detect and Classify

The system can be configured to automatically detect and classify all targets within security zones. The detected targets are classified by user-defined rule sets and the system alerts the operator, while automatically assigning a camera to lock-on and track the offending targets.

Maritime Patrol also integrates drones or hovercraft with cameras, thermal imaging devices, diver detection sonar or echo finder, automatic identification system (AIS) to provide complete maritime situational awareness. The solution also provides enhanced aerial or surface response.

In addition, the detection capabilities of the system have been tested and therefore verified against small boats (such as Jet Ski's, rubber rafts, kayaks, and canoes).  Hence the solution also detects, surface swimmers, floating mines and other simulated waterborne improvised explosive devices.

Maritime Security Patrol - Smart Buoy

The Smart Buoy system specializes in detecting boats, divers, submersibles and large marine life using state of the art sonar and identification software systems to relay critical information to authorities responsible for beach safety.

The system is designed to be deployed beyond the surf zone and utilizes smart sensors and multi beam sonar transducers that are mounted on the ocean floor coupled with newly developed detection software to scan for underwater movement and marine life. Smart Buoy™ creates a ‘virtual net’ at the deployment locations and once an object is detected in the area, the software interrogates the target’s swimming pattern to determine the type of object or potential species. If the target is determined to exhibit shark like movement patterns, information is transmitted to lifeguards within seconds, if the target is identified as a diver or submarine the system will alert the field team or command center of the target and the location via a real-time mobile application with automated notifications and warning information.

Smart Buoy™ is unique in the market as a viable commercially available shark mitigation method, and maritime security patrol, using non-invasive technology solutions suitable to protect high intensity surf zones and coastal regions. The stability and robustness of the current Smart Buoy™ platform has been verified to sustainably operate in open ocean conditions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, autonomously monitoring boats, diver, submersibles and marine life and alerting the presence of suspicious objects or large animals which could be a threat.

Maritime Security Patrol - Integration

Maritime Security Patrol is a fully integrated maritime surveillance solution. The solution fuses radar, coastal, aerial and surface electro-optical/ infrared (EO/IR), sonar or echo finder, Automatic Identification System (AIS), record/backup and replay all input data such as radar echo, video, AIS, VHF and worldwide weather forecast service, into a intuitive and understandable system.

Maritime Patrol provides the command center with the ability to view and comprehend sensor feeds and dispatch a closer look by air or from the surface. In addition to the fully integrated Maritime Security Patrol Small Target Detection radar system, the system includes Zone Monitoring and Alarm, it also weather forecasting.

Maritime Security Patrol high-resolution EO/IR cameras on the coastal edge, on drones and hovercraft enables the user to lock onto targets of interest and track them automatically. Coupled with optional countermeasures such as long range acoustic device, water canons, and dazzlers, targets of interest which have been automatically classified as threats by the system can be issued directed audible warnings or engaged with non-lethal deterrents.

Maritime Security Patrol uses combination of sensors, drones (UAV) and manned or autonomous hovercraft (USV) to provide a mobile, flexible and scalable surveillance solution. As a result Maritime Security Patrol is used as a stand alone marine security system or rather act as a part of a larger maritime solution network.

Epiphany Physical Security are completely turnkey surveillance operations and each solution is designed to fill the needs of particular project. Once an assessment is completed we develop the solution, install, implement, operate, support, maintain and staff the project. We also train all personnel employed by the client that are part of the project team.
