1. Can ROW be mounted on a buoy or an UAV?
Yes, speak with us today to discuss available options buoy-based ROW. For UAV, it can and we are already working with partners on such systems. Sign up to our newsletter to receive updates for availability.
2. Is the ROW able to detect oil in all weather conditions?
Yes. For areas prone to fog, we recommend installing the ROW closer to targets to improve the effectiveness of the device as low cloud coverage scatters the signal to the device.
3. What is the area covered by the field of view?
The field of view of ROW is 0.05 – 0.4 m (Ø), focusing on this size of area allows the device to limit the averaged signal measured from the waters surface to reduce false alarms and increase sensitivity. Because oil spreads rapidly on water, in practice the area of water protected is much larger.
