OSLO is an innovative new sensor surveillance system that can observe the ocean surface layer. As a real-time monitoring system, OSLO is suitable for a wide variety of applications. The system can detect both floating objects and objects below the ocean surface and therefore reduces numerous risks in terms of safety, security and navigation.
Offshore activities in general face numerous risks in terms of safety, security and navigation. There are many sensor solutions available to detect objects that are above the ocean surface or (to less extent) below the surface. However, none of the conventional sensor technologies are able to properly detect objects in the surface layer, such as small boats, swimmers, buoys, markers and sea ice. OSLO has been developed as a new system to detect such objects in order to reduce the various risk they pose to the offshore and maritime sectors.
