Sea rescue (SAR)
During search and rescue operations near to the coast, or on the open sea, every minute is crucial, to rescue people in distress at sea. A normal ships radar has difficulty recognising small objects in a sea with growing waves, as their reflections hardly vary from those of the uneven surface of the water.
OptoPrecision has developed an intelligent multi sensor system "MODAR" for use on the sea. Thanks to the latest camera and laser technology, swimmers or fixed objects in the water can be located and detected across long distances, which can mean a crucial information advantage during sea rescue, to successfully complete the SAR operation.
With our high-performance LED search light, which was specially developed for SAR operations, objects can be illuminated at a distance of up to 2,500 m.
