Offshore oil and gas platforms and floating production storage and offloading facilities (FPSOs), as well as other infrastructure, are often positioned in some of the most challenging waters. Their requirements are unique: similar to those of moving vessels, needing to be self-sufficient, but not dissimilar to those of ports and coastlines.
This means they require the ability to detect targets, manage vessel traffic around the asset and any neighbouring assets, ensure vessels are able to approach and leave safely, and ensure security is provided through adequate surveillance.
HENSOLDT UK’s extensive range of radars and radar systems will meet these needs. The Kelvin Hughes Shore Based Sensor (SBS) radar range is designed to meet the 'Basic', 'Standard' and 'Advanced' capability types of IALA V-128 recommendation. With the addition of SharpEye™ technology, offshore facilities’ crew are able to detect targets from a greater range, in difficult conditions and high sea states.
Today hundreds of these systems are operational around the world. HENSOLDT UK works with system integrators to determine which system best meets their needs.
