By Orca Maritime Inc

Solution details




Orca Maritime's underwater security services emphasize detailed visual information from state-of-the-art sensors and innovative methods for collecting and storing that information. The techniques developed by Orca Maritime, adapted from experience in military underwater operations, are relevant and applicable to commercial port security requirements in today's threat environment. We offer practical, achievable measures that improve security, deter against potential attacks and support additional port objectives. Change Detection Using digital underwater imagery to map prioritized areas, Orca Maritime uses change detection to locate and identify underwater objects that may be a threat. Accurate location and visual information about an object is saved in a geodatabase that can be referenced or updated with new information at any time. If a threat is suspected, Orca Maritime can quickly resurvey an area and compare new information to the historical database in order to efficiently identify any potential threats. AUV, ROV, and Diving Operations Orca Maritime routinely uses remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) qualified divers to conduct visual security inspections of underwater infrastructure.
