Maritime Surveillance & Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA)

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code requires that all vessels entering Territorial Waters shall be positively identified by visual means.

Our land based EOα™ (EOAlpha) System provides this visual identification capability for Territorial Waters and the ship borne version of EOα™ extends the capability out to the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The land based EOα™ (EOAlpha) System consists of a chain of camera sites connected to radars and IMO Automatic Identification System (AIS) receivers covering the water traffic lanes, so that images of vessels transiting the Territorial Waters will be captured when they pass one or more of these camera sites.

The automated Vessel Identification function which compares the images captured with a Reference Picture Database (RPD) reduces the time the operator needs to identify a vessel and minimizes operator workload for the identification task.

EOα™ includes a Vessel Dimension Measurement function to determine the vessel’s dimensions – length, width and, especially, height above water (air draft).

Vessel Height & Identification System

We are a global leader in Vessel Height Measurement / Surveillance and Ship Height Detection.

EOα™ performs real-time, round-the-clock measurement and computation of vessel height.

It can be deployed to facilitate the enforcement of vessel height restriction compliance, for example, in areas where there are:

  • Bridges, cables or other structures that are suspended across waterways
  • Areas with aircraft take-off and landing flight path over water
  • Other zones with low-flying aircraft
