Research of a New Open Sea Contingency Monitoring System

  • 88 Accesses


According to the development of open sea hydrologic environment monitoring technology in China, and combining with the demand characteristics of supporting marine environment in the future, a new ocean contingency monitoring system was established, which based on the technologies of unmanned air vehicles, meteor burst communication and marine field detection. This paper discusses the developing needs of the field detection technologies of the marine environment, research status in the relevant fields of China and some developed countries, then focuses on discussing the main components of the new system, laying mode, compares the technical characteristics with the existing similar systems, and how to break through the technical bottlenecks at present, includes the system’s mobility, data remote transmission and synchronizing observation. Then, the research and development of field detection technology are introduced briefly. All these will be helpful to settle the foundation of such theories as efficiently promoting the security, concealment and survivability of open sea hydrologic environment monitoring.
