Gas and Oil Rigs Security

Gas and Oil Rigs Security
CONTROP's scanning and observation systems provide proven security to offshore gas rigs and oil rigs.  These infrastructures are not only vital to a country's economy, but also highly vulnerable to hostile threats. They are very strategic assets which are closely concentrated on a compact man-made structure built on top of a highly flammable source and located in the middle of the ocean. A small, yet hostile craft or swimmer carrying explosives could result in a potential security nightmare.

The systems provide the following security solutions on gas and oil rigs platforms:

  • Detect various targets - ships, small boats, swimmers etc
  • Target detection, identification and tracking – alert to security squad
  • Monitor and control all boat activity around and under the rig – safety and security


  • Nonstop 365 days, 24/7 Day/Night capability
  • Automatic Intruder Detection and Alert
  • Dual-Axis Gyro Stabilized
  • Long, Medium and Short Range Applications
  • Suitable for Harsh Maritime Environments
  • Proven and Mature Systems
  • Modes of Operation:
    • Remote-Controlled Observation
