Regardless of complexity or budget, our innovative and responsive surveillance experts partner with you to design and build the best solution available for your needs, backed by our lifetime 24/7 customer support.
SSR’s coastal surveillance solution provides multiple benefits to ensure you maintain complete 24/7/365 situational awareness within your budget while remaining nimble to changing conditions.
Increase Operational Effectiveness While Reducing Overhead
Our integrated and automated radar processing and tracking solutions reduce workload. By bringing sensor data from multiple sites and geographical areas together, SSR solutions allow a single operator to effectively do more. Your benefit: Fewer operators and reduced operational costs.
Optimize Performance Regardless of Bandwidth
Bandwidth concerns? No problem. Our unique message protocol optimizes system performance regardless of network conditions or bandwidth. Whether its radio, satellite, cellular, microwave or fiber, we will transfer all your mission critical data back to the command center, providing you with the complete surveillance picture.
Reduce Expenditures By Leveraging Existing Systems
We work with your system. Whether you have a variety of existing sensors still providing valuable information or need to upgrade, we can help. Our software interfaces with the largest portfolio of integrated radars, cameras, and sensors of any provider. We save you time and money, seamlessly integrating your equipment into an upgraded processing and tracking system, giving you a complete, real-time picture, on time and on budget.
Unmanned Remote System Reliability
You’re always online. Our ruggedly designed systems operate autonomously for years at a time often hundreds of miles from command centers. With onboard remote monitoring and control, our maintenance tools minimize onsite maintenance requirements and downtime while our system redundancies ensure you never experience a loss in coverage.
Securely Collaborate with Partner Agencies
We make interagency collaboration easy. Share raw sensor, track, and intelligence data through SSR’s secure entitlement-based gateway to partner agencies. What’s more, our system allows you to leverage partners’ systems to extend or augment local surveillance systems, minimizing capital investment.
Coastal Surveillance at Work
Protecting Natural Resources
As concerns grew over poaching in the Chesapeake Bay’s $3 billion oyster industry, Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) implemented an advanced monitoring system to protect the sanctuaries.
Chosen to provide the core surveillance sensor foundation for its system, SSR worked with Maryland DNR to create a comprehensive radar and camera surveillance matrix designed to provide complete 24/7 coverage of the geographically diverse, 1,200-square-mile coastline of the bay.
Due to the Bay’s ragged coastline with islands and literally hundreds of inlets, the system required two types of radar, high definition day cameras, and advanced thermal infrared cameras. Additionally, portable surveillance trailers are used allowing the agency to adapt to changing threats.
Utilizing microwave, 4G, and fiber connections, all sensor data continuously streams to SSR’s Radii situational awareness display. The display in turn provides operators with a real-time, clutter-free picture of the bay regardless of metrological conditions, while immediately alerting to potential threats. All data is recorded and available for on demand access, helping to recreate events and build incident reports.
Although the system was initially installed to protect Maryland’s natural resources, the value of SSR’s advanced technology has attracted high-level attention. Due to the bay’s proximity to Washington, D.C., and thanks to SSR’s multi-agency sharing capabilities, the system has grown into an invaluable multi-agency information-sharing network. The United States Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security, Maryland Emergency Management Agency, Maryland Port Authority, and Naval Research Laboratory have all tapped into the system’s live data streams, jointly monitoring the up to 1,500 tracked targets daily, resulting in heightened national security surveillance and an increase in life-saving capabilities in the bay.
And the oysters? They are thriving coming back as the industry’s production in the bay remains on a continual rise after a decades-long decline, thanks in part to SSR’s support of Maryland DNR.
