Schiebel and Overwatch Imaging successfully integrated PT8 Oceanwatch, a small target detection payload, on the CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS).

The PT-8 Oceanwatch delivers an image-based wide area maritime search capability that extends the coverage area and makes the CAMCOPTER S-100 a naval patrol solution, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

Oceanwatch autonomously detects small targets on the ocean surface, solving the challenge of searching for small objects over vast areas and greatly outperforming conventional cameras that face insurmountably large areas when zoomed in and invisible targets when zoomed out.

Oceanwatch is a solution for applications such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance gathering, search and rescue, anti-piracy and other maritime security operations.
