ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR DEPLOYMENT

  • Radar Tower: To ensure a clear view of the area being monitored, the radar needs to be mounted at least 25-30ft above water and within 1/4 of a mile from the coast line. The height of the tower depends on radar location and distance from the coastline. The roof of a building or other structure with a clear view of the managed area can also be used in place of a tower.
  • Electricity: A consistent power source must be available (either grid tide or off grid) to power the system 24/7. Specific power requirements vary depending on system hardware configuration.
  • Internet Access: Internet connection via ethernet, wifi, or broadband connection. If local internet connection is unavailable a remote internet connection is required through a satellite internet terminal capable of transmitting via HTTP protocol and a data plan of at least 5.5MB/day.
