Acoustic Monitoring

Acoustic monitoring consists of using hydrophones, also known as underwater microphones, to detect underwater noises and are integrated onto platforms such as buoys, cabled systems or unmanned underwater vehicles.

Aerostats

Aerostats use buoyant gas to float and stay aloft in the air and are a platform technology to hold payloads of sensors, cameras and more.

Automatic Identification System

An Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a vessel tracking system and was originally developed to help avoid vessel collisions.

Explore Category

Buoys

Buoys are an anchored platform technology that can operate on or below the surface.

Explore Category

Camera Surveillance

Camera surveillance is an integral piece of marine surveillance, and cameras can be installed on number of different platform technologies such as unmanned systems, manned aircraft and boats or buoys.

Explore Category

Manned Aircraft

Manned aircraft are a platform technology that can be equipped with a variety of sensors including radars and imaging platforms to detect illegal fishing in real time.

Explore Category

Manned Boats

Manned surface patrols (boats and ships) are the most common platform for maritime surveillance and enforcement.

Explore Category

Miscellaneous

This category includes any other technology that useful to marine enforcement that did not fit into the existing classifications.

Explore Category

Radar Technologies

Radar systems are a payload technology that transmit electromagnetic waves, and can detect objects by measuring at what point those waves are reflected back to the system.

Explore Category

Satellite Observation

Satellites are comprised of two main parts: the payload (the sensor that takes the pictures) and the bus (the hardware that gets it into space and keeps it running).

Explore Category

Unmanned Systems

Unmanned systems are platform technology that operate without the need for a human pilot.

Explore Category

Vessel Monitoring System

Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) are installed on commercial fishing vessels to allow regulatory agencies to monitor position, time, course and speed of the vessel.
