MARSS To Install Long-Range Security And Climber Detection Systems

By [email protected] - 24th January 2018 - 10:11

MARSS has secured a refit contract for the installation of their automated security systems NiDAR and CLIMBERguard onboard specialist merchant vessels. This project will integrate security radar and daylight/infrared cameras, as well as climber detection capability to deliver layered 360° surveillance for the monitoring, detection and tracking of surface objects in the vicinity of a vessel. The NiDAR system developed by MARSS is providing all-round air, surface and underwater perimeter security to protect high value maritime assets. Operating autonomously and discreetly 24/7, NiDAR tracks both known and unknown objects around a vessel, while smart software algorithms automatically analyse and rank threats, triggering alerts to notify users as required. Climber detection is achieved with the self-contained CLIMBERguard units that combine micro-radars, imaging sensors and processing to automatically detect, classify and track approaches close to and scaling the vessel sides.
