Full motion maritime video motion detection

Sentient Vision Systems : 23 February, 2015  (New Product)
The Kestrel Maritime ViDAR product from Sentient Vision is being launched at the IDEX even in Abu Dhabi for maritime surveillance operations
Full motion maritime video motion detection

Sentient has announced the extension of its Kestrel portfolio with the launch of Kestrel Maritime ViDAR. The new product stands alongside Sentient’s other solutions, Kestrel Land MTI, Kestrel Maritime and Panoptes to provide a complete range of detection systems for use in military, border protection and maritime patrol applications.

Sentient will showcase Kestrel Maritime ViDAR for the first time at the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE) starting February 22nd.

Kestrel Maritime ViDAR is real-time software that uses ultra-high resolution sensors combined with advanced algorithms to automatically detect all object types over a wide field of view while providing alerts in real time to operators.

“For the first time, Kestrel Maritime ViDAR delivers an automated WAMI capability to Maritime search” said Simon Olsen, Director of Business Development, Strategy and Partnerships at Sentient. He added, “For WAMI to be effective, automation and detection capabilities are mandatory. Kestrel Maritime ViDAR is the first software to solve these problems in a maritime context resulting in maritime search and detection which is 20 to 80 times greater, on a scale of coverage, than existing airborne EO/IR sensors. The ability to detect small objects within EO/IR imagery is a game changer for both manned and unmanned Maritime Surveillance and Patrol aircraft”.

Ever increasing maritime threats and risks are placing significant strain on military and government agencies who are struggling to find cost effective maritime patrol solutions for wide expanses of ocean. Sentient has applied its expertise as a pioneer in automated detection capabilities to significantly enhance maritime detection coverage and performance to increase operator effectiveness for maritime patrol applications.

“The reality is that maritime patrol requires a cost effective asset that delivers wide area coverage and an ability to detect and disseminate information about objects such as rubber rafts, small wooden vessels and potentially submarine periscopes, day and night. That is what Kestrel Maritime ViDAR delivers.” said Olsen.

Sentient will be demonstrating their Kestrel solutions including ViDAR at IDEX February 22 to 26, 2015 in Abu Dhabi, US Pavilion, Hall 3, Stand C3-007.
