M Surveillance and Monitoring


Accipiter’s patented M Target Information System (TIS) is the heart of every Accipiter® surveillance system. Within our TIS are the target data collected by the system sensors, updated in real-time with new information and historically spanning even years into the past.  These target data include (i) full target trajectories for every tracked target, where each trajectory has an assigned target-ID along with a series of time updates each containing parameters such as {latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, heading, size (radar cross section), date, time}; (ii) event data such as alerts and complex events defined by specific target behaviour; (iii) sensor imagery illustrating distributed phenomenon such as weather, ice, and ground clutter; and (iv) other meta data that help characterize the environment and the point targets such as vessels, aircraft, birds, drones, persons, animals, and vehicles found therein.

The big data contained in our M TIS is organized as a highly efficient and secure data warehouse that allows real-time surveillance and monitoring of target activity, with user-definable alarms and automatic alerting, from sending a notice to a mobile device to triggering bird deterrents, for missions as varied as law enforcement and investigations, port security, search and rescue, coastal surveillance, maritime domain awareness, bird strike prevention, and air traffic control.

Whether it’s vessels or low-flying aircraft crossing borders and entering specific exclusion zones; or drones loitering in a controlled or sensitive airspace; or birds crossing active runways or approaching wind turbines or tailings ponds, understanding the presence and nature of specific targets is critical for identifying hazards to safety and security, measuring risk, and alerting authorities to take additional action.
