KONGSBERG completes supply of harsh environment CCTV system for US Coast Guard heavy ice breaker

Kongsberg Maritime has delivered a complete new CCTV system to the US Coastguard for its Heavy Ice Breaker vessel Polar Star (WAGB-10). The delivery follows a successful CCTV System upgrade on Polar Star’s sister vessel, the USCGC Healy Polar Ice Breaker, in 2013.

The Kongsberg Maritime CCTV range is a scalable harsh environment marine platform

that incorporates a combination of high quality in-house design with modified off the shelf (MOTS) video camera stations, telemetry and control components. The exposed cameras on the Polar Star are manufactured from stainless steel and engineered to withstand harsh exposed marine environments and extreme low temperatures. Many system components comply with the highest naval specifications for shock, vibration, EMI, temperature and humidity.
