Protect What Matters

Environmental risks are of increasing importance. The ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from the impacts of hazardous spills is crucial. Stakeholders, industry, and government need workable solutions to serve both local and remote locations.

CIMS is a customizable package of hardware and software technologies developed for industry and government agencies. It enables communities, asset owners and first responders the ability to respond to marine incidents quickly.

Early Detection

Identify threats with CIMS cutting-edge hydrocarbon detection hardware that works 24-7. Act quickly with CIMS rapidly deployable autonomous air and surface vehicles. CIMS minimal crewing requirements limits exposure of personnel to hazardous environmental conditions while the vehicles do the work.

 

Efficient Communication

Get the data to the right people in real time. Inform the Safety Unit about air quality. Allow the Environmental Unit to see the infrared images. Help the Logistics Unit get water samples to the lab quicker than ever before. All CIMS data is collected at the Field Control Centre; permissions and notifications can be granted as the incident unfolds. Any data can be sent to a cloud server to be used by all parties involved whether remote or local.

Effective Management

CIMS delivers capabilities to actively manage people and assets, including cross-platform communications between response personnel, streamlined incident management processes, and control over autonomous surface vessels and drones. The sensor-rich platforms provide real-time information about the nature and scope of a marine incident and allow for both proactive management and predictive planning of the response.

CIMS RAPID DEPLOY COMPONENTS

OceanSled™ Package

The OceanSled™ is an autonomous surface vessel capable of carrying a wide variety of payloads, from deploying lightweight boom to transporting sorbent materials to delivering lunch to an operations team on a rugged beach. The IRI drone provides real-time environmental and spill data to inform response operations.

IRI Drone Package

The Incident Reconnaissance and Intelligence (IRI) drone is a sensor-rich package providing high-quality data to create an understanding of the incident as fast as possible. With a visual-spectrum camera, an infrared camera, air quality monitoring sensors, and a water sampling kit, the IRI drone provides a multitude of data types to inform response operations.

Field Control Centre

The OceanSled™ can be controlled by a simple hand-held controller, but to unlock its full potential, we supply a Field Control Centre with a powerful onboard computer and up to three large screens to facilitate maximum control efficiency and incident support. In a smaller incident, the Field Control Centre can become the Incident Command Post, with one screen dedicated to the Common Operating Picture to display all assets and shipping movement in the area. All of the CIMS hardware data is received at the Centre and can be sent to the cloud if needed. Advanced connectivity packages can be included for remote locations.
