Advanced situational awareness, real-time surveillance, and monitoring

Situational Awareness is
not a Nice to Have.

Topside surveillance protects your employees, assets and overall operation. Energy, maritime and defense operations face operational threats ranging from employee safety protocols, system leaks or process breakdowns to terrorism or vandalism.

Subsea surveillance protects the assets that can’t be seen above the waterline. These underwater structures and systems face the same if not more of the harsh and forbidding elements of the ocean environment. SIDUS offers robust, long-term subsea surveillance solutions that are depth rated up to 6000 meters.

SIDUS, a veteran owned and led company provides our clients the trust and confidence they require in surveillance investments. Our industry best cameras, ranging from thermal, explosion proof, to ultra-low light set the standard for quality. Our advanced video analytics and systems deliver real-time insights and alerts so our client’s teams can work smarter, safer and more efficiently.
