North-Sea Monitoring Project (OMS)

Under the leadership of “Raytheon Anschütz” ten companies of the “Maritime Cluster Schleswig-Holstein” and scientists of the research institutes IfM-Geomar and FTZ-Westcoast/Kiel University developed a concept for an adequate monitoring system that will be installed at the North Sea. The concept reaches from units as X-Band- and over horizon radar, some measuring buoys and a measuring pile, over the data analysis to a locally public alerting system.
