Abstract

DESIGN ANALYSIS OF OFFSHORE ANTIPIRACY REAL-TIME FLOATING SURVEILLANCE UNIT (RFSU); A CASE STUDY OF THE GULF OF GUINEA

Chuku Azubuike John*, Inengiyemeima Morrison and Mkpa Ante

ABSTRACT

This paper presents the design and analysis of a real-time floating surveillance unit (RFSU) in an attempt to proffer solution to the continuous challenge of sea-piracy in the Gulf of Guinea. Having highlighted the impacts of Piracy on the maritime industry in the region under review, and by examining the effectiveness of the current mitigating measures taken in operation, it was identified that these existing measures are expensive, and have severe limitations when combating Pirate attack towards a ship offshore. This novel design therefore is a combination of technologies such as the a Marine radar, Automatic identification system (AIS), Solar and Battery power system, VHF radio, moored-floating structure with signal transmission through the satellite communication system to the base station.
