SENTRY BUOY / Unmanned Sentry Device

SENTRY BUOY
SENTRY BUOY

SENTRY BUOY is a piece of unmanned sentry equipment that clamps down on illegal fishing boats and cleans contaminated oceans. Recently, illegal fishing boats have begun to pose a threat to the ecosystem due to reckless overfishing. Additionally, in cases of maritime accidents such as oil or chemical leaks, it is difficult to take swift action. To address these problems, SENTRY BOUY provides real-time information to the control center and enables rapid response. In addition, through its own water condition verification system, faster and more accurate initial response is possible without having to wait on lab results.
