ADPC launches 'Eye in the Sky' security cameras
Abu Dhabi, June 2, 2014
Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC), the master developer of ports and industrial zones, has launched its new high security ’Eye in the Sky’ cameras recently.
The two new cameras, which comply with international regulations, will cover specific areas at Khalifa Port, Zayed Port, the Free Port, and The New Free Port, said a statement.
The increased surveillance will strengthen the maritime security of international ships in the port, with even difficult to access locations being comprehensively monitored, offering a higher level of reassurance to visiting foreign vessels or ships with high value or sensitive cargos, it said.
In case of any accident or search and rescue situation, the cameras will be able to view, assess and monitor an incident, minimising staff or contractor’s exposure to high risk situations.
The security drone’s camera is very stabilised and fitted with an integrated GPS auto-pilot system offering position holding, altitude lock and stable hovering.
The camera can capture full HD video 1080p at 30fps and 14 megapixel still photographs and comes equipped with its own wifi network for data transfer.
Sultan Al Jaberi, vice president – regulations, HSE and Security, ADPC, said: “The new drone cameras will be excellent security tools for monitoring, viewing and managing incidents, and will be particularly valuable in any search and rescue situation.
“The cameras will offer an enhanced perspective that will enable us to evaluate and anticipate any issues or future risks, offering our customers greater peace of mind and reassurance.”
“This new resource has given us a valuable tool, significantly enhancing the safety and security across Khalifa Port and the Abu Dhabi city centre ports. The biggest benefit will be reducing the risk to human life in remote or dangerous scenarios, where we can now use the camera instead of a person,” added Al Jaberi. - TradeArabia News Service
