UK Surveillance Tech on South Korean Offshore Wind Farm
Cambridge Pixel has supplied its RadarWatch and target tracking technology to an offshore wind farm in South Korea.
The UK company supplied the RadarWatch coastal surveillance software, target tracking and radar recording technology to Klein Marine Systems, a subsidiary of Mitcham Industries, as part of a project to protect the wind farm and its associated submarine transmission line.
The radar display, tracking and recording technology has been integrated with the radar, daylight/thermal cameras, an AIS receiver and long-range acoustic device (LRAD) as part of Klein’s HarborGuard maritime security and surveillance solution.
According to Cambridge Pixel, the surveillance system monitors vessel traffic around the wind farm and along a 10km submarine transmission line carrying power from an offshore platform transmission station to the onshore distribution facility.
“We needed a modern, multi-window display solution that fuses information from radar sensors, transponders and cameras to present a consolidated view of vessel movement in the monitored area to our shore-based operators,” said Frank Cobis, Vice President and General Manager of Klein Marine Systems.
“Cambridge Pixel’s RadarWatch radar display application, target tracking software and real-time data recorder, provided all the functionality and the flexibility we required for this programme.“
