Everybody in the world benefits from shipping, yet few people realize it. We ship food, technology, medicines, and memories. As the world's population continues to grow, particularly in developing countries, low-cost and efficient maritime transport has an essential role to play in growth and sustainable development.
Ships have to neutralize the challenges that are forced by environment, safety and security, machine effectiveness and structural integrity.
Cats Monitoring all these threats in real time are imperatively important for smooth operations of Merchant Navy, Oil Tankers etc.
VEDA is capable of remotely monitoring vibrations and condition of structures simultaneously in the time and frequency domains and displays the displacement, velocity and acceleration of vibrations at even inaccessible locations on a structure.

  • AUM_Fire monitoring provides the highest quality and increased process safety.
  • AUM_Fire is extremely sensitive that captures release of smoke even from cigarette. With clear line of sight, distance to monitor fire or smoke is not a limiting factor.
  • Only one unit of Aum_Fire will Monitor :
  • Lethal gas parts per billion that are susceptible to trigger fire.
  • Realtime detecting different types of gases Co, No.
  • Temperature, humidity and other parameters.
  • System is highly sensitive and accurate and every 5 feet of space is monitored.
  • The severity of smoke or fire can be predicted based on increase in concentration.
  • AUM qualifies and quantifies the gas. Based on concentration of gas, information is sent to command and control system.
  • Laser light will travel to the source of fire or smoke, rather than waiting for smoke to reach the sensor.
  • Wind shear may impact movement of ship :
    • SAMIRA is used to detect the wind-speed, direction, velocity, temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, solar radiation, etc. - at various elevations above the platform up to 5000 meters.
    • Readings are made at each approximately 25 meters in periods of ten seconds.
    • By means of a software application wind profiler is used to detect low vertical wind shear and inversion of temperature in order to provide improvements to the models through which the warnings are made.
  • AUM_OCEAN Extracting the waves speed, length and depth.
  • Solving the depression level for Depth.
  • Mapping Shallow water (less than 50M) waves height providing useful insights to various functions.
    • Modelling / Beach Erosion
    • Navigational Information
    • Amphibian operation during time of War
  • Suits of integrated Algorithm associated with Hydrodynamic signatures and coupled with Deep learning platform to provide accurate and sensitive information.
  • CATS SHM monitors and qualifies following 5 important aspects :-
    • Detecting the existence of the damage on the ships
    • Locating the damage / porosity
    • Identifying the types of damage
    • Quantifying the severity of the damage
    • Resolution
  • VIDUR can seamlessly do Vibration monitoring of Steel and composite Structure.
  • VIDUR can diagnose the current structural strength and Health from a far away distance if proximity to the structure is difficult.
  • VIDUR can monitor inaccessible locations and reduces time for planned maintenance.
  • The same system can be used to monitor condition and vibration monitoring of Turbines and other moving components.
Droneacharya is a near real-time data Mapping of Coastal Waters using Drone Camera, providing for a simple, inexpensive and quick access to the series of images of one for monitoring and providing information of nearby ascending or descending vessels or underwater moving platforms that can be alerted as friend or foe.
  • The Primary manifestation of Moving platform in stratified fluid is the turbulence and the associated wake and wave generation.
  • Droneacharya will detect targets from Space, Interprets hydrodynamic patterns that are generated by targets.
  • The optical and radar images of ship wakes can be interpreted in terms of the classical work of Kelvin and Bragg, respectively.
  • The SOS is a self recording unit with real time display and can either be moored at Sea, fixed on the bottom of the seabed or can be mounted on the hull of a Ship / Platform.
  • Suits of integrated Algorithm associated with Hydrodynamic signatures and coupled with Deep learning platform to provide accurate and sensitive information.
  • Quick and less than ONE MINUTE comprehensive information of 500KM*500KM swath (area) on Earth can be analyzed for digestible information that is very vital for Earth station (Command and Control).
  • Smart Tubestile is equipped with Photonic sensing system integrated with image processing monitors and detects :
    • Bacteria and virus using Exhaled breath analysis.
    • Weight
