Detection and Recovery of Oil

The SECurus highly sensitive IR camera with every pixel GPS determined enables detection, thickness measurement, exact plotting and drift estimate of the oil spill. The SECurus pinpoints the areas of significant oil for effective boom location and skimmer maneuvering, and is the ONLY solution in the world tested and verified as a tool for oil spill thickness estimation.

Key numbers:
Automatic detection: Thickness estimation:
4 km
4 km
  • 24 hours operations independent of light and weather conditions
  • Automatic detection and outline of oil spills up to 4 km away
  • Area and drift
  • Prediction of drift and interception
  • Thickness and volume estimation of the slick
  • Boom¬†formation
  • Day and night skimmer visualisation and navigation
  • Integration with established oil spill tracking and estimation solutions
Search and Rescue

The built in search and rescue patterns are modified by inputs such as wind, current and vessel speed to enable effective use of both the IR camera and the long range video camera. Any objects seen in the pictures can immediately be plotted directly in the map for immediate or later investigation. The 300W xenon narrow light beam will light up any object from 5 km out and aid identification and eventual pick up.

Day and Night vision

The SECurus system provides uninterrupted night vision for difficult offshore operations. In addition, the high sensitivity IR camera can be used to monitor towing and lifting equipment and cables for abnormal strain and friction.

Recording, documentation and collaboration

The SECurus can record pictures, video and screenshots for future documentation and analysis. The Aptomar TCMS system will ensure real time collaboration and information transfer between all involved locations both offshore and onshore.

  • Videos and pictures can be stored for documentation
  • Sharing of data through the Aptomar TCMS system
