  • Towards a better understanding of airborne maritime surveillance August 13, 2021

    Airborne maritime and pollution surveillance plays a crucial role in the defence sector for safeguarding the coastline, ISRR, EEZ as well as pollution control, piracy and maritime terrorism. The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at SRM University-AP organises a lecture titled “Airborne Maritime Surveillance” on August 21, 2021, at 4.00 pm as part of the Departmental Lecture Series. Dr Reena Sharma, Scientist G, Centre for Airborne Systems (Ministry of Defence R&D, DRDO) will be the guest speaker at the event.

    There is a necessity to monitor the vast Indian, coastline, Indian Search and Rescue Region (ISRR) and the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) on the map of India. The airborne surveillance is carried out by mounting various surveillance and imaging sensors onboard, an aircraft making it a Maritime Patrol Aircraft or Multi-Mission Maritime Aircraft System. Some of the major sensors onboard comprise of AESA Based Maritime Patrol Radar, Electro-Optics/Infra-Red sensor, Pollution Surveillance Suite, Automatic Identification System and others. The sensor’s output is integrated to provide a maritime situational picture displayed to the operators, thereby providing them with a maritime situational awareness. In this talk, Dr Reena will be addressing the above facets of airborne maritime surveillance.

    All are invited to this insightful session on August 21, 2021, at 4.00 pm.
