Nations and Governments to Strengthen the Maritime Surveillance over the Sea
Maritime surveillance is a high-end integrated solution that offers security for sea levels. It is a module that includes cameras, radars, automated identification systems (AIS), central control room, sensors, and other such tools for security purposes. The inspectional operation intends to control illegal and inappropriate activities such as smuggling, irregular migration, fisheries control, and oil pollution. The solution improves observation and security, and enhances maritime surveillance.
The increase in activities regarding terrorism and smuggling has augmented the awareness of maritime surveillance. On the other hand, a surge in trade and transportation activities via sea has driven the growth of the maritime surveillance market. According to a report published by Allied Market Research, the global maritime surveillance market is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 9.5% from 2019 to 2026. Furthermore, several nations have initiated to strengthen maritime surveillance. Recently, the Irish government has ordered for new maritime patrol aircraft for maritime surveillance. On the other hand, Greece commenced the demonstration of flights with MQ-9 Guardian remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA). Following are the in-detailed elucidations:
Irish government to order two new aircraft for maritime patrolling:
The government to take initiative to strengthen maritime patrolling. The government in Ireland has contracted with the Airbus Defence and Space to deliver two new maritime patrol aircraft. The new C 295 type aircraft would replace the old CASA 235 maritime patrol aircraft, that has been in service since 1994. Moreover, the construction of the aircraft will be done in the company’s production facility. The contract will be accomplished in two stages and the aircraft would be delivered by 2023. In this regard, the Defence Minister Paul Kehoe stated that the investment for new maritime aircraft for air corps indicates a commitment by the government to provide flexible conventional military capabilities. In addition, the project will be sponsored by the European maritime and fisheries fund operational in association with the government of Ireland, and the European Union.
Greece has begun a series of demonstration flights with MQ-9 Guardian aircraft:
To strengthen sea security, the trials have begun in Greece. The General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) and Hellenic Air force (HAF) has commenced a sequence of demonstration of flights with MQ-9 Guardian aircraft. The demonstration would be presented outside of Larissa Airbase in Greece. Furthermore, the demonstration will exhibit the capabilities of MQ-9 for maritime surveillance and the Detect and Avoid (DAA) system developed by GA-ASI, to the country representatives. In addition, the DAA system involves a radar system along with collision avoidance and traffic alert system, and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast systems, offering safety features. The MQ-9 along with various radar modes also presents a high-definition video sensor with infrared and optical cameras, and a programmed identification system receiver. The sensor system detects on-time information over the sea.
In the world of growing threats, terrorism, and other criminal activities maritime surveillance is essential. With the monitored situation over the offshore and provided information regarding irregular activities, maritime surveillance has reinforced the security. Moreover, the increase in military spending to raise security and surveillance of maritime and supportive growth with regulatory compliance would propel the growth of the maritime surveillance market, in the coming years.
