Shipmast Height Detection for MPA Singapore

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Singapore Exchange Mainboard-listed Stratech Systems Limited (Stratech) announced that it has been awarded a S$1.16m contract by the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore to design, implement and maintain the next-generation Shipmast Height Detection System (SHDS).

The ability to provide vessel or shipmast height detection is crucial for waterways that require minimum height clearance. The new SHDS is designed to monitor in real-time the height of marine vessels passing through the waterway at Sentosa Island, which could pose a threat to the safety of Sentosa’s cable car operations.

The system will detect and alarm MPA personnel upon any violation, thereby ensuring that MPA’s ship height regulations are adhered to. Based on laser technology and intelligent vision for visual verification, the new SHDS will replace the existing system also deployed by Stratech.

“Minimum height clearance is also crucial to the safety of bridges built over water,” Dr. David K.M. Chew, Executive Chairman of Stratech, said. “We are in discussions in several countries and one of the UK’s leading consultancies in the provision of planning, design and management services for infrastructure development worldwide has specified our Vessel Height Surveillance System for the proposed new Thames Gateway Bridge to be built in London.”
