MONASI: Maritime Surveillance System
For Military & Commercial Use
The Monasi Maritime Surveillance System is a modern, powerful system designed to negate the elements of stealth and surprise from asymmetrical threats and when attached to reaction elements, from lethal to non-lethal, can effectively protect a vessel or control station.
It is primarily designed for the following roles:
Long-distance (4000m) observation
Advanced detection and warning
Self-protection in close-in environment
Surveillance and Intelligence gathering
Daylight & Thermal Cameras
Monasi consists of an array of optical sensors consisting of daylight (? = 400-700nm) and thermal (? = 8–15µm) cameras. Using optical and mechanical controls the system provides for continuous monitoring of 360° surrounding areas as well as pin-point spot monitoring of any identified location. 24/7 performance is provided by the wide range of monitored frequencies as well as the addition of illuminators to improve visibility as well as act as deterrents.
During incidents, it is important to ensure that the omnidirectional monitoring is continued to reduce the impact of diversion techniques. While such static cameras are not controllable, the use of very high-resolution cameras together with digital Pan/Tilt/Zoom capabilities can nevertheless provide sufficient information to assist an operator to switch attention from the diversion to the real attack. Monasi will automatically detect objects at distances of up to 3nm (5400m).
The long-distance view can allow spot monitoring in distances of up to 5nm (9260 m), or with high-resolution detail of closer objects to assist with identification, including facial recognition. These cameras are mechanically and optically stabilised to combat ship motion.
Vessel Self-protection in Harbours
In addition to the seaward detection, the system can be used as a local self-protection system in foreign harbours detecting access into safe zones, stowaways climbing on-board and so on.
While the active component is critical in the case of a threat, the task of threat detection and classification itself is time-consuming and laborious. The Monasi system offers automated detection capability, able to recognise objects at long distances. Once recognised, objects are continuously tracked and alarms are raised once configured thresholds are breached, objects are racing towards the vessel and so on. Time of impact is calculated to assist with reaction planning.
Advanced Prevention Technology
Using optical and mechanical controls, the system provides for continuous monitoring of 360° surrounding areas, as well as pin-point spot monitoring of any identified location. 24/7 performance is provided by the wide range of monitored frequencies, including the addition of illuminators to improve visibility, and act as deterrents.
Typical applications include:
Open water and harbour protection
Vessel protection in harbours
