SCOTTTSDALE, Arizona -- Aerial Surveillance Systems Inc and OPTIMARE Sensorsysteme have launched the SkyEye 350, Hawker/Beechcraft King Air 350-based MEDUSA Airborne Offshore Security and Oil Spill Monitoring Platform.

SkyEye 350 allows risk assessment in order to organize and coordinate response efforts.

The same data provides secure, time-stamped and geo-referenced video evidence of the event scene, and provides active, real-time reporting and report generation.

The MEDUSA System integrates multiple airborne imaging remote sensors into one network-based data acquisition and processing framework. In combination with other remote sensors such as underwater, satellite-based, and fixed buoy systems, operators have the capability for detection, interpretation and analysis of oil spills.

The FLIR Systems Inc. Star SAFIRE HD electro-optical/infrared sensor used in MEDUSA is a second generation multi-spectral imaging system. The specially modified sensor package can capture and stabilize high-magnification images from low-medium-high-altitude tactical missions and long-range covert surveillance.
