Costal Surveillance Network
The CoastWatch Coastal Surveillance Network (CoastWatch/CSN) is a maritime monitoring and control system, designed for multiple applications. It combines modern technology with years of experience in sensor data fusion, advanced signal processing and real-time distributed surveillance. More than 30 of these systems are operational, including the largest AIS network in the world. CoastWatch/CSN provides a robust, scalable and highly adaptable network system that supports multi-layered system design.
Coastwatch will fill an important role of surveillance of coastal areas from air, land and sea for nations around the world that face threats such as illegal immigration and fishing, smuggling, environmental pollutions etc.
CostWatch include state of the art sensors such as Radars, AIS/Secure AIS, CCTV etc. together with highly advanced software applications which collect, distribute and display the obtained maritime situational information.
The CoastWatch system is a network centric application, all sensors are network enabled and TCP/IP capable, which simplifies integration of new customer specific sensors.
TactiCall maritime communication solution
With TactiCall MCS Saab applies already proven integrated communication technology to the coastal radio domain thereby optimizing, modernizing and future-proofing already existing mission critical coastal radio systems.
