All you need to know about the Nigerian Navy Falcon Surveillance System.

In early 2016 the Nigerian Navy inaugurated the Falcon Eye Maritime Surveillance System. This was a welcome development, as the Nigerian Navys limited number of Patrol Vessels were stretched too thin to effectively police the water ways of  Nigeria’s EEZ effectively.

The Falcon Eye is high-tech mass surveillance system designed in Israel but manufactured by the United Arab Emirates based Falcon Eye Technology. The Falcon uses a number of electro-optic systems and cameras operated from a command centre to detect and pinpoint movements..

Nigeria’s Falcon Eye has a range in excess of 200 nautical miles from the coast and uses six electro optical stations to monitor vessels, aircraft and offshore platforms.
