  1. 1. IVS(TM) An Integrated Vision System for Yachts and Commercial Vessels Provides highly increased capabilities for Maneuvering, Navigation & Security We are currently under contract to install our integrated vision system onboard a new yacht that is under construction and should be launched sometime the middle of next year.
  2. 2. System Features • The vision system provides 3 points of view: a bow and stern camera system, and a radar mast camera system. • Each camera system consists of at least two cameras, one for day/low light operation and one that operates in the IR spectrum for operations in total darkness, fog and smoke. The radar mast mounted system may have additional sensors. • Each camera system is mounted within a 3 axis gyro stabilized (roll/pitch/yaw) gimbal that is weather-proof and ruggedized for marine use. • The radar mast gimbal is mounted ball-up for 360 degree FOV. Two gimbals may be used in the event design of the radar mast prevents 360 degree FOV from a single gimbal. • The bow and stern gimbals are portable/detachable and are mounted ball-down. • The bow and stern gimbal/camera assemblies are battery powered, with wireless video and control links (optional hard-mounted display on the bridge). • The wireless range of the bow and stern video links is 45 meters minimum. • The bow and stern cameras have the capability to provide a high-resolution, wide angle FOV to a minimum of 350 meter range for use in close-quarter maneuvering and docking in harbor.
  3. 3. System Features (continued) • The radar mast mounted cameras have the capability for extreme long range (quality TBD) • The radar mast cameras have the capability to be automatically steered onto targets referenced by the onboard surface search radar • The entire system provides a portable display and can be controlled via a handheld tablet. • The software interface allows integration of multiple cameras from a single Graphical User Interface. The information on the following slides depict components provided by FLIR Systems, Inc. There are several high quality manufacturers of such products, so the cameras and gimbals actually used will be selected based on the budget and performance requirements of the customer.

  14. 14. Appendix One of the most unique and powerful options that can be added to IVS is a fully autonomous small UAV system equipped with both a day/low light camera and an IR camera. This UAV can be operated by the crew to scout around islands and other areas as part of enhanced security measures before committing to an anchorage in a remote area or unfamiliar port. The UAV will be able to send back live video of the area it flies over, and the video feed (including position information) can be displayed and recorded simultaneously. The operation of the UAV is easily controlled by any selected crewmember with a minimum of training from one of our instructors. Range and operating endurance (time) is dependent on which UAV package you choose. The most economical package is the ROV-4 package.
