AHAB: An Automatic Marine Mammal Monitor

AHAB is an automatic whale spotting technology for aerial and surface level platforms. The technology uses electro optical sensors to provide persistent situational awareness for the detection and continuous monitoring of marine mammals. AHAB provides real-time feedback of marine mammal counts, geolocation, proximity to vessels, and heading. The technology is passive (non-emitting sensors do not interfere with animal behaviour), and deployable from manned and unmanned aerial vehicles, and ship masts.
