Standard Guide for Selection and Operation of Vessel-mounted Camera Systems

Status : Current   Published : April 2018



1.1 This guide provides information and criteria for the selection of camera remote sensing systems that are vessel-mounted for the detection of oil on water.

1.2 This guide applies to the detection of oil-on-water involving cameras of IR, visible, ultra-violet, or night vision types.

1.3 The context of camera use is addressed to the extent it has a bearing on their selection and utility for certain missions or objectives.

1.4 This guide is generally applicable to all types of crude oils and most petroleum products, under a variety of marine or fresh water situations.

1.5 Many camera technologies exhibit limitations with respect to discriminating between the target substances under certain states of weathering, lighting, wind and sea, or various camera settings.

1.6 In general remote sensing systems are used to detect and delineate the overall slick. Vessel-mounted systems are used only to provide a tactical image in the vicinity of the recovery vessel.

1.7 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.8  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.9  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
