OTHR for over-the-horizon Ship Tracking
Protects the EEZ and helps to identify fishing pirates and smugglers far behind the horizon. High probability of detection for up to 200 NM. Multi sensor tracker and suspicious target identification software is available.
WERA is highly flexible, offering diverse configuration possibilities adapted to the user’s needs, and the given site requirements. The array of small antennas can easily be integrated into existing structures or adapted to environmental conditions.
Array Type or Compact Antenna Systems
WERA is flexible and can be set-up with Compact or Array Type Antenna Systems. This enables us to find the best radar configuration for your specific application !
WERA is FCC and RED approved by an accredited certified body. For each WERA station a Quality Control is carried out on data from each individual grid cell in the entire map, in real time. To ensure highest data availability and quality WERA monitors regluarly the main system and antenna parameters.
WERA provides valuable information in real time with high spatial and temporal resolution for:
♦ Port authorities & Fishing Industry
♦ Vessel Traffic Services
♦ Met-offices and scientists
♦ Search & Rescue
♦ Hazard management
♦ Environmental protection
WERA for Dual Frequency
The Dual-Band option is suited to operate in two frequency bands in a time sharing mode, which is perfectly suited for:
♦ getting best data at various sea states
♦ extending current maps to longer ranges, and maintaining good wave
and current data at shorter ranges
Drift Prediction for Search & Rescue
The reliable and in real time qualified WERA data are used to improve short term current drift predictions for:
♦ Search and Rescue
♦ Environmental protection
♦ Search of drifting containers
♦ Identify origin of oil spill
WERA combines all information
for modern Coastal Management; measurements with high spatial and temporal resolution of Surface Currents, Wind Direction and Wave Parameters. The shore based system provides very high data availability.
WERA Data Viewer
The DataViewer provides all required tools to display current, wind and wave data from single WERA stations or radar networks. Time series and animations can be easily generated. Data archiving is included and various formats for data export are available.
Array type WERA systems provide significant wave height and mean wave direction within the area of overlapping signals from two stations and directional wave spectra from individual grid cells.
The WERA array type systems guarantees reliable Tsunami detection as the approaching Tsunami wave reaches the continental shelf edge. The time series of Tsunami probability and a map of the Tsunami signature is provided in near real time for the support of decision making.
Use the Convenience of Shore Based Instruments for Your Offshore Project:
♦ Feasibility and environmental studies
♦ Increase efficiency of service actions
♦ Improve environmental monitoring
♦ Increase safety for personnel
WERA for Mobile Applications
The WERA systems are designed for low power consumption and suited for off-grid operations. The electronic rack and the small antenna systems and cables fit into a small container or trailer perfectly suited for:
♦ rapid deployment
♦ temporary measurement campaigns
Calibration of WERA Systems and Antenna
Once an hour a self calibration procedure is carried out for optimization of the receive
antenna beam characteristic. This self calibration is the guarantor of the excellent accuracy of the
beam steering (typically ±1°)
In this section some material can be found which can be helpful for the planning phase, installation and configuration of ocean radar systems.
