VTMS for Petronas

System components:

  • One SeaHawk dual X-band radar
  • AIS base station
  • One operator workplace

Project description

The main challenges for this project were very short terms of system production, delivery and installation and assuring precise continuous target tracking in strong tropical rains.

SeaHawk dual X-band 25 kW radar system was used for the best tracking performance.

This radar consists of two side-by-side antennas with circular and horizontal polarization attached to one turning unit.

iVTMS system provides:

  • Top of the range detection performance, also in rough weather conditions like white breaking sea and heavy precipitation.
  • Ability to detect and follow fast and small objects/movements as well as detecting large objects.
  • Detection of small fast moving targets (which are "lost" in standard navigation radar systems).

Detection of small and/or low reflecting objects on the surface.
