AMASS – the Autonomous Marine Surveillance System – draws on the latest technology to provide a reliable, round-the-clock maritime monitoring solution.
A line of buoys located offshore ensures comprehensive coverage of territorial waters. Each buoy is equipped with the latest visual and acoustic sensors. When a suspicious vessel is detected, images can be transmitted directly to a control centre on shore. This provides authorities with unprecedented observation capabilities and enables them to take swift appropriate action.
Led by Carl Zeiss Optronics, nine specialist partners from across Europe have joined forces to develop AMASS. A special feature of this project is its scientific approach: all components are the result of state-of-the-art research and technological development. Currently, AMASS is undergoing rigorous testing. The result will be a pioneering yet proven solution – leading to safer, more secure coastlines.
