WatchStander Debuts Automated Antipiracy System

Nicole Ventimiglia

WatchStander LLC has introduced a fully automated system designed to prevent pirates and other unwanted individuals from boarding ships. The video and data from all incidents will be archived for subsequent transmission to the shipowner and WatchStander for training and evidential purposes. The fully automated WatchStander system combines intelligent software with a range of non-lethal countermeasures. The system uses cost-effective high resolution radar to automatically identify surrounding traffic and assess behavior over time to identify hostile targets. The system then operates non-lethal countermeasures to respond to the threats.
