OCEANNET® ADD-ON MODULE FOR AERIAL MARITIME SURVEILLANCE
The OceanNet lets several users on supporting vessels view the imagery and data captured from the elevated OceanEye® Sensor unit. The OceanNet has been tested and proven in operations in cooperation with NOFO – Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies. The OceanNet is offered as an add- on module to the OceanEye® and is designed for easy portability and set-up. The OceanNet can be delivered with both conventional rod antennas and directional antennas, based on the customers requirement for radio range of the OceanNet.
