OSIS System Overview


The System Design illustrates the OSIS Oil Spill Identification System:

OSIS Oil Spill Identification System Design


The OSIS SensorPack™ generates raw data for identification, tracking and quantification of oil spills within 2.5 nautical miles from the installation site. The OSIS SensorPack (when coupled with commercial X-band radar) contains a dual frequency microwave radiometer, providing data for precise surface area, thickness and volume estimates of an oil layer on the sea. The OSIS SensorPack is linked to the OSIS Onsite Viewer.

OSIS SensorPack Microwave unit


The OSIS Onsite Viewer™ analyzes and presents the data from OSIS SensorPack and provides users with a real-time oil spill information. The OSIS Onsite Viewer can be used as a local system or as a 24 hour automatic surveillance system set to trigger an alarm if oil is measured on the sea surface. The OSIS Onsite Viewer can provide advanced report and statistical functionality.

OSIS Onsite Viewer Display


The OSIS Onshore Viewer™ is a client based installation providing access to oil spill information from offshore OSIS SensorPacks. The OSIS Onshore Viewer is linked to the remote OSIS Onsite Viewers via the internet and users are automatically updated with sensor status for all sensors within designated geographic areas. The information can be displayed on a standard PC or a wall mounted monitor.
