AI-enhanced SeaFLIR sensor goes to Taiwan

19th August 2020 - 10:37 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Taiwan Coast Guard is the launch customer for the SeaFLIR 280-HDEP maritime surveillance system from FLIR Systems, under a $14.6 million contract agreed last month.

SeaFLIR 280-HDEP will be included in three Taiwanese shipbuilding programmes, FLIR Systems announced on 17 August.

Part of the SeaFLIR family of sensors, the 280-HDEP uses edge processing to provide low-latency, AI capabilities that enhance the detection of objects of interest.

Tim Durham, FLIR VP and general manager of sensor systems, said this produces a ‘reduced cognitive workload and improved effectiveness, which is especially important with the shift toward expeditionary naval deployments with expansive areas of open water to surveil’.

The 280-HDEP features a modular, scalable control electronics unit capable of hosting high-power video processing and trained convolutional neural networks (CNN) from FLIR and third-party solutions; optional display interface boards displaying up to six independent video streams; a new optional vision processor and graphics processing unit; and an embedded digital video recorder with capacity for more than 150 hours of footage.
