Remocean Oil Spill Detection & Propagation

The excellent capability of the Remocean Oil Spill Detection & Propagation system, thanks to an advanced real-time signal processing, is able to highlight the dampening of the reflected microwave radiation on the radar sweep image.

Proprietary pattern analysis algorithm allow to drastically reduce false alarms events. This information, combined with the high-resolution current field measure and thanks to the use of appropriate models allows the system  to predict the propagation of the spill in time.

Remocean Coastal Monitoring System

Coastal Monitoring is one of remocean’s applications based on its innovative wave radar algorithm.

It represents an integrated solution that allows coastal monitoring, providing real time information on sea state, wave motion close to harbors and coastline, surface currents, as well as offering an analysis of the impact of waves on the coastline and the generation of bathymetry maps.The application provides real time information (in a range up to 3 nautical miles from the radar) about:

What we measure.

Remocean System provides real time information up to a range of 3 nautical miles from the radar, relative to:

  • Sea State: graphical and textual representation of
    • direction, length and period of primary and secondary dominant waves;
    • significant wave height;
    • average values for direction spread, period and length;
  • Surface currents:
    • average values for direction and speed;
  • Directional Spectrum: 2D representation of waves in the frequency domain;
  • Wave Motion: Space-Time Reconstruction of waves.


How we do it

Remocean’s wave radar proactively uses the clutter signal in combination with specific mathematical algorithms, to estimate sea state parameters, surface currents field and seabed shape and to detect the presence of small targets and oil spills.

Remocean Small (and Slow) Target Detection System

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.

Remocean Target Detection & Tracking System

The Remocean Target Detection & Tracking System  is capable of tracking moving vessels, throughout the entire range of X-band radars (up to 12-24 nautical miles, depending on the type of radarand its location).

The vessel tracking system operates in a way very similar to commercial VTS systems, providing speed, direction, dimensions and route of any moving object combined with data received from the AIS.
