 Intel and Moxa: Marine Disaster Recovery through Intelligent Systems

Marine Disaster Recovery through Intelligent Systems

Moxa has long partnered with Intel to produce industry-leading industrial computing platforms. Moxa uses innovative advances in hardware and software designs to make the most of industrial-grade Intel processors, producing rugged solutions tailored for mission critical maritime applications. The recently published Intel case study “Marine Disaster Recovery through Intelligent Systems” highlights how the combination of Intel processors with Moxa design and engineering has resulted in computing platforms certified for marine use that are perfectly suited for critical high-performance applications like oil spill detection systems.

In “Marine Disaster Recovery through Intelligent Systems”, Intel illustrates how the increasing demand for environmental protections has spurred the demand for oil spill detection systems. One leading system provider, Miros AS, has selected Moxa’s MC-5150-AC-DC series (built around advanced Intel processors) as the base platform in their advanced oil spill detection (OSD) system.


"After software testing followed by a more rigorous system test, we are left with the impression that Moxa MC-5150-AC/DC will satisfy all Customer & Product Critical Requirements"

About Miros Oil Spill Detection System

Miros offers a radar-based OSD solution that has been extensively tested in oil-on-water exercises going back to 2004. This radar-based system has fully automated detection capabilities, giving oil spill position, tracking and measurement of drift. Miros OSD™ can operate in nearly all visibility conditions on a 24 hour basis, and has become an essential tool for aiding in recovery vessel and boom orientation to the oil slick.
Using thermal (IR) imaging, Miros AS’ OSD allows identification of the thickest part of the oil slick, giving operators a powerful tool for estimating the magnitude of the spill, and enabling targeted responses where the majority of oil is located.

"Moxa is our long-term strategic business partner for over 20 years. Together with Moxa’s reliable computing, display, networking and automation product solutions, sincere services, plus Intel’s innovative technologies, we are very looking forward to continuously deliver more and more unique add-on values to the greater marine market"
