RPAS Capabilities: The Decisive Maritime Surveillance Solution

A situational awareness response using RPAS: Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems

We have developed a situational awareness response using RPAS (Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems) to combat the daily threat of illegal activities on the world’s seas, further complementing our maritime satellite surveillance services.

Whatever the threat:

Maritime pollution, Emissions monitoring, People Trafficking, Area monitoring, Smuggling, Terrorism, Illegal Fishing detection, Piracy or armed robbery.

Maritime surveillance enhances safety and security of people and assets.

“With more than 200 RPAS operations each year, we have the necessary experience to support you with your individual operational requirements. We are ready to discuss your needs”, says Nadia Maaref, Director for Maritime Security at CLS.

“Maritime authorities require regular surveillance. In their daily missions they need cost efficient and easy to operate tools additionally perfectly complementing the satellite images we provide” commented Nadia Maaref. “Drones are exactly that.”
