MAKO: Autonomous Surface Fish Spotting

MAKO is an automatic surface/near surface schooling fish 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 fish schools. MAKO provides real-time feedback of school density/counts, biomass estimates, geolocation, and school 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.
