ASIO Maritime Surveillance
Maritime Surveillance Mission

Surveillance operations in the maritime domain are often complicated and demanding with an environment that is more dynamic. Maritime threats such as piracy, smuggling, illegal fishing, oil pollution, illegal underwater activities and other criminal and terror operations are on the rise, The need for comprehensive maritime awareness to increase safety and security regardless of weather and lighting conditions, becomes more prevalent.

Maritime Surveillance Solution

BIRD’s ASIO maritime solution provides customers with an integrated Aerial-Naval-Land solution. It facilitates maritime and coastal surveillance, patrol and survey of borders and strategic assets as well as Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) monitoring capabilities.

ASIO Maritime surveillance solution provides an operational surveillance and security task force including Fixed Wing surveillance aircraft tailored with maritime mission sensors, Naval Ships and HQ command.

Leveraging BIRD’s advanced mission management system (MSIS) and Ocean Surveillance Control And Reconnaissance (OSCAR) information gathered from the various sensors is autonomously prioritized and automatic alarms of suspicious activities are provided in real-time to the ASIO Maritime Patrol Aircraft enabling an optimized airborne mission.

The ASIO aircraft provides all the participants in the mission operation with an effective, integrated, real-time situational awareness overview over land and water, enabling efficient detection, tracking and interception of any suspicious activity.

Keeping you fully Informed

ASIO Maritime solution is designed to achieve maximum mission effectiveness through BIRD’s advanced Multi Sensor Integration System (MSIS) that manages the complete mission profile (Briefings, Operational and Debriefings/Analysis).
MSIS collects and processes large amounts of information gathered from all onboard sensors. This information is then automatically classified and then clearly displayed using state of the art data fusion algorithms with an easy to use and intuitive human machine interface.
MSIS reduces mission crew workload by display and operation of important aspects of the mission at any given time, enabling the crew to efficiently complete detection and classification of only the relevant targets.

Command and Control application for management of all mission phases: planning, execution, debriefing.
User defined flight plan contains route with waypoints, specific area marked for search or No Fly Zone and activities of sensors for defining search patterns in accordance with the evolving mission.
Real-time data collection from all sensors, tagging with mission id, time and flight attributes.
Various scan analysis tools such as line-of-sight for specific sensor activity considering coverage by ranges and angles.
Fully integrated radar products (Track, ISAR, SAR) between operators on airborne and ground platforms.
Synced map views for examining surface and focus on the same Point of Interests (POI).
Manual operation and automatic activation of all sensors and sub-systems.
Integration and display of layered information based on sensors in tactical picture with flexible waterfall views and geo-located over map (in accordance with NATO symbology).
Recording and Playback of all mission data (video audio & data) with time tagged bookmarks, graphics annotations, clips and captured frames.
Export and backup all mission data using external SSD/USB device.
