Our NOUS is an innovative prototype system that provides continuous video monitoring at depths up to -150m, giving 24/7 watch over an underwater area of interest. Symbiotically integrating Artificial Intelligence into the marine and diving industry, NOUS becomes your workforce underwater effectively monitoring object detection, image classification, site monitoring, and more.
The NOUS underwater monitoring system is created by an underwater network of wide-field cameras, all transmitting real-time footage, in color. The NOUS underwater network is powered from the shore through a node hub with fail-safe considerations specific to the underwater environment. Each NOUS camera is enclosed separately in a unique and purpose-built housing to ensure its safety at depth. Combined with its multitasking computer unit, lens wiper, and motor as well as its monitoring electronics the NOUS team have designed the system to make underwater real-time streaming video hassle-free, efficient, and effective.
NOUS’ capabilities can be tailored to suit your specific underwater monitoring needs. The NOUS system seamlessly integrates day or night (Infrared) cameras, LED lights, laser, temperature measurement sensors, a hydrophone for acoustic data, and more. Speak with the NOUS team about your needs for a custom-built system.
Harnessing the power of the sun, NOUS is supplied with electrical power by a surface-mounted station of photovoltaic panels, batteries, and electrical solutions designed specifically to meet the requirements of the undersea systems.
NOUS can be enhanced to include a weather station and remotely-controlled 360 degree camera for sea to surface and land monitoring.
Transmitting data through first a fiber-optic connection and then via RF link to the internet, NOUS sends data from underwater to a dedicated online server in real-time. GSM and satellite networks offer optional backup connections depending on the circumstances of your setup.
NOUS uses artificial intelligence capabilities to process and assess what it sees. Capable of perceiving, distinguishing, classifying, and associating patterns in relation to the area of interest it is monitoring, NOUS’ technology is state-of-the-art and specifically designed to suit underwater sites that benefit from constant monitoring whether for protection, research, or another purpose. NOUS’ A.I. is trained to customize with local data and preparation of results in real-time operation.
