The maritime environment is very demanding for aerial surveillance. Radar is expensive and ineffective for detecting targets with low electronic signatures. Human surveillance is severely impacted by fatigued eyes which cannot remain alert for long periods of time and can easily miss targets. Severe environmental conditions, white caps, clouds and sun glare also contribute to the difficulties of the maritime environment.
Kestrel Maritime provides a comprehensive solution for ocean surface target detection in real-time from full motion aerial video.
Kestrel Maritime is designed to work on a diverse range of air platforms.
