GEM elettronica participated at the 2018 oil-on-water exercise offshore Norway organized by the Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies (NOFO).
The annual NOFO oil-on-water exercise uses cutting-edge technologies in a real oil spill scenario with the main goal to improve oil spill response preparedness. In this occasion our GEMINI X-Ka dual band radar together with OSD processor were extensively tested.
The oil spill was clearly detected by the GEMINI radar during the whole exercise. In particular the Ka-band radar demonstrated an exceptional contrast revealing also narrow patches of oil on the sea surface.
