Coastal Surveillance

Coastal Surveillance
CONTROP's Scanning and Observation Systems are proven for coastal surveillance and security from intruders by detecting swimmers, small boats and more. The systems provide a “virtual fence” over the water as they automatically detect intruders from the sea before they reach the defined boundary. The recognition, identification and tracking of intruders are key to protection and directing of security forces to the exact location. Whether the requirements are for long, medium or short-ranges, CONTROP can meet the challenge. Also for detection of intruders by land, the systems are proven to provide the ultimate answer for coastal security.
The CONTROP systems were designed especially to deal with different coastline applications 24 / 7, without interruption and without affecting normal activities.
  • A “virtual fence” over the water (sea) – detects intruders (small boats or swimmers) from the sea before they reach the coastal area or boundary!
  • A "virtual fence" on the land near the coast– detects land intruders before they reach the fence.
  • Observation of intruders that were detected by other means.
  • Identification and tracking of intruders and direction of security forces.
  • Scanning and observation of waters within the coastal boundaries, for unauthorized activities.
  • Surveillance and observation of all ships and boats - 24 / 7.
  • Surveillance and observation of land fences near the coast.
CONTROP’s systems were approved as “the ideal operational intruder detection system” by the Israeli Military of Defense (MOD). The systems are in current operation providing coastal protection in a very large-scale surveillance and security program in Israel. They also operate in a large coastal surveillance and protection program in Southeast Asia. Recently, following strict testing and approval by the US Coast Guard, CONTROP's solutions were chosen to provide protection for a strategic seaport in Europe, the important Gioia Taurro harbor in Italy, whereby their versatility is proven in applications as a "virtual fence" over the water (sea) and also as a land observation system. In many cases, these products were successfully integrated with radar systems, AIS systems and other sensors, to provide the Operator with full coverage of the area of interest.
