- General Details
Slick Guard is a fully integrated environmental monitoring platform. The twin-hulled catamaran style buoy, built by InterOcean Systems, is a rugged and stable design providing an ideal solution for coastal and offshore spill detection wherever a floating monitoring station is required (for example desalination plants).
Slick Guard is an integrated, turnkey, environmental monitoring system. It is designed to be moored off shore, or wherever a floating monitoring station is needed for detection of oil spills. Slick Guard includes:
● Slick Sleuth Oil Detection & Alarm
Slick Sleuth employs advanced optical UV technology for the detection of oil in real-time. Slick Sleuth is a highly sensitive, non-contact, and non-fouling detector designed for extreme conditions.
● Remote Wireless Telemetry Unit (RTU)
The Remote Wireless Telemetry Unit provides the communications link between the Slick Sleuth and the base station monitor/control center. The communications link can be RF, WIFI, cellular or satellite depending on specific requirements and local regulations.
● Solar DC Power Unit (PSU)
The Solar DC Power Unit supplies power to the Slick Sleuth and the Remote Wireless Telemetry for continuous uninterrupted operations.
● Application Specific Instrumentation (Optional)
User-specified, application specific instrumentation can be added to the system and factored into the design of the Wireless Telemetry & Solar DC Power Unit. Additional instrumentation could include:
- Current Speed & Direction
- Water Quality Monitoring
- Meteorological Instrumentation
● Ruggedized Flotation Platform
Ruggedized catamaran design provides an extremely stable instrumentation platform for rough water conditions. Moored twin hull buoys constructed from welded steel and coated with marine grade paint.
