The contract sees the most complex security system ever sourced for a private superyacht being developed and installed by MARSS. Installation of the system is already underway and consists of the MARSS proprietary NiDAR™ long range air, surface and underwater surveillance system and the MOBtronic™ automated man overboard system. This project also sees the first ever installation of the latest generation navigation and obstacle avoidance sonar (NOAS).
The MARSS system is also integrated with Frankentek’s proprietary onboard security package.
Johannes Pinl, founder of MARSS stated, “this contract includes a number of world first’s, including introduction of some technology for the very first time on a private vessel and the delivery of innovative new technology to protect lives and enhance safety at sea. The team has worked very closely with the yard, owners team and Frankentek to deliver a world class off-board package that redefines the technical superiority that can be achieved with NiDAR”
Marc Franken, president of Frankentek, adds “MARSS has already proven itself protecting VVIP residences and critical infrastructure worldwide, they were able to listen to the clients requirements and develop, with their system partners, a very comprehensive solution overcoming technical and commercial hurdles along the way, we believe that this system sets a new standard for yacht safety and security”
NiDAR™ delivers enhanced situational awareness and increased reaction time by integrating multiple sensor and data feeds to generate a long range 360 degree perimeter security shield around a vessel. Operating autonomously 24 hours a day NiDAR detects, classifies and responds to multiple air, surface and underwater threats in the vicinity of a vessel. This provides vessels with the most complete security picture supporting correct decision making and enabling an effective response in critical situations.
