Maritime authorities such as coast guards, navies, ports, and others require enhanced maritime domain awareness to address ocean safety and security challenges such as illegal fishing, piracy, smuggling, and other threats.

Accipiter Radar Technologies Inc. and Maerospace Corporation have announced a Co-Operation Agreement to promote their respective surveillance products’ combined capabilities. This collaboration aims to provide short, medium, and long-range maritime domain situational awareness.

Accipiter is a renowned supplier of affordable, all-domain situational awareness systems for critical infrastructure, airports, ports, and waterways through its Radar Intelligence Network™ (RIN) platform technology. The RIN platform facilitates a sensor-agnostic approach to detect, track, and alert cooperative and uncooperative targets of concern in the air, water, and land. Meanwhile, Maerospace offers an integrated “over-the-horizon” radar and AI analytics platform through their PASE® High-Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR), enabling persistent surveillance coverage of a nation’s 200 nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zones.

“Accipiter is well known for our affordable, sensor agnostic and scalable approach to wide area surveillance,” said Simon Jerome, VP Sales & Marketing at Accipiter.  “Teaming with Maerospace will enable customers to benefit from their over-the-horizon maritime domain awareness to compliment our all-domain awareness of critical infrastructure, ports and coastlines.”

“We are delighted to be collaborating with Accipiter”, stated Eric Meger, CEO of Maerospace “Our PASE® High Frequency Surface Wave Radar (HFSWR) combined with our TimeCaster™ AI-driven analytics solution continuously monitors all vessel-based activity up to 200 NM from shore with continuous coverage of 41,000 square miles. Accipiter’s M3® Target Information System and wide selection of integrated sensors will bring a new dynamic to the overall capabilities that Maerospace can offer.”(Press Release)
