Kongsberg Maritime reports that it has upgraded the CCTV system on board the USNS Zeus, a US Navy ship that specialises in laying submarine cable.

The new system replaces one originally installed by Kongsberg in 2002, and includes equipment designed to withstand the rigours of the marine environment. The Norwegian provider says the system components comply with the highest military level specifications for shock, vibration, EMI, temperature and humidity.

Above deck, 10 PTZ (pan, tilt & zoom) IR Colour cameras with integrated IR LED lighting will be in operation, featuring a high resolution low light colour/mono sensor with 28 x optical zoom (12 x digital) and an integrated wiper system.

These will be complimented by 29 high speed PTZ dome cameras suitable for above/below deck operation, with a high resolution colour/mono sensor and 36 x optical zoom. Images are distributed via a large video router, and operation of all cameras is handled through telemetry keyboards with three axis joystick control.

As well as the CCTV system, ‘Kongsberg Underwater Technology Inc’ (KUTI) also installed a dual High Precision Acoustic Positioning system (HiPAP), an EM122 Multibeam Echosounder and an EA600 Single Beam Echosounder, as part of what Kongsberg calls its ‘Full Picture’ solution. 

“We believe we have succeeded in delivering a high quality CCTV upgrade solution fit for the harshest of environments,” said Philip Graham, project manager, Camera Division at Kongsberg Maritime Ltd.

“This, however, was only achieved and obstacles overcome due to good communication and the continuous excellent relationship with our client. We are delighted to be part of the collaborative Full Picture delivery to this longstanding Kongsberg Maritime customer.”
