The Remocean Small (and Slow) Target Detection System allows the detection of small targets that could be not detectable by the normal radar systems. This result can be obtained through an appropriate analysis of a series of consecutive images acquired by the radar that allow to amplify the weak signal coming from small targets stationary or slowly moving.
This product can be useful both for coastal applications in the detection of small boats non-cooperative (illegal fishing, piracy, border control, surveillance, SAR, etc.) or for the detection and tracking of small drifting objects (icebergs, oil drums etc.) that could represent a hazard to navigation. In the following figure it is shown the raw radar image (superimposed to the geographic map) before application of the algorithm for the detection of small targets.
