The forum exposed the means in maximizing operational performance in the maritime industry and also provided training on inmarsat FleetBroadband.
Elcome International LLC presented the latest on-board camera surveillance technology for commercial shipping which originally was developed by and used in the defence sector. The SeaVision camera system comprises optical, thermal/infrared based CCTV technology which automatically acquires and tracks targets and has proven to be extremely useful in identifying possible pirate vessels and reducing collision risks.
Features such as 360 degree auto rotating vision, software controlled zoom in-out, identification of objects when interfaced with other on-board systems such as Compass, GPS, Radar etc helps the navigator to detect and monitor any intrusions including small objects like RIBs and speedboats even in rainy, fog and harsh sea conditions. It is designed to be an easily manageable system with playback and record and real-time remote surveillance features operated from on-shore. SeaVision CCTV systems benefit both the captain on-board and the ship owner on-shore as a result of increased situational awareness during troubled times at sea.
