Denmark upgrades SAR technology

The Danish Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) has announced the purchase of an upgrade to its BMT SARIS search and rescue planning system, consisting of the deployment of 20 licences across Denmark, and covering Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The extended deal will also include development of capacity for ongoing in-house training, with initial training being delivered by BMT.

The SARIS technology is designed to help locate targets, whether it be people or objects, lost at sea. It is a sister application to BMT’s navigation and manoeuvring simulator, REMBRANDT. 

“Traditionally, coastguards would use nautical charts and careful statistical calculations to help determine the predicted movement of a missing person or object at sea – all of which can take time. This functionality, with the addition of high quality metocean data modelling, is delivered in a fraction of the time by SARIS,” said Ian Smith, BMT’s business line manager for SARIS.

“The addition of the Monte Carlo probabilistic modelling offers new opportunities to the Danish and all of our customers, providing high quality simulations surpassing what has been provided before.”

“These additional licences demonstrates that SARIS is still a force to be reckoned with in the search and rescue modelling market. It also reinforces our commitment to ensuring that we continue to listen to our customers and provide a solution that is flexible and fit for purpose.”{/mprestriction}
