IUU fishing is a massive and often organized crime business that generates up to USD 26 billion p.a. wordwide. Accordingly diverse are the illegal methods and the applied tricks for their concealment. To achieve a breakthrough in combatting IUU, the current measures should be complemented by a new way of fishing activities surveillance to generate sound evidence against the criminals.

AIS surveillance itself does not provide the needed evidence The system of monitoring fisheries using AIS (Automatic Identification System) has a number of disadvantages. For example, there can be no evidence of actual IUU activity. It always requires the additional control boat on site. In most ports, however, there are paid informants who warn IUU fishermen immediately when a control boat leaves the port.

Special Unmanned Aerial Systems (S-UAS) can compensate these disadvantages. They can be launched outside of a port, raise real video evidence of illegal fishing and are hardly recognizable to offenders. Typical IUU methods which can be inconspicuously discovered, recorded and documented as evidence by employing S-UAS are listed below.

Between the classic consumer drones and the highly complex and very expensive large governmental unmanned aerial vehicles, a new class of UAV has evolved. They form a class of very professional systems with many skills similar to those of governmental drones, but cost effective like no other system. That is the business that bbcom secure Deutschland GmbH wants to offer to governments, international control organizations, environmental groups and companies.

bbcom secure Deutschland GmbH is aware and follow the market for these Special Unmanned Aerial Systems (S-UAS), the available technologies and components and their advantages and disadvantages. Founded twenty years ago in Switzerland as a specialist for tap-proof communication, the now german bbcom secure provides its knowledge and many years of experience in international projects.

The technology of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) will strongly change our life and the face of the world similar to the development of the smartphone before. Many tasks in logistics, state and private security, reconnaissance, surveying, exploration, supply and rescue will in the future be carried out cost-effectively and reliably by drones and other specially designed UAVs. Their potential applications and the already impressive capabilities of their components are constantly advancing and becoming ever more specific.

With their business units Security, Maritime and Data Privacy bbcom secure Deutschland GmbH design individual S-UAS and counter drone solutions according to customer requirements. The company claims that it solutions are characterized by fast availability, modular construction, high efficiency and practicality for the specific task.

For example bbcom secures maritime division has designed a solution against illegal fishing at any coast-line worldwide. The system is also a multi purpose solution for border control based on their experience in international projects. This aerial surveillance system can also be used for a variety of other sovereign tasks without any changes. The UAV and the ground control station are completely mobile and can be moved easily to any location. 

This S-UAS technology is also excellent at border control, brings surveilance and reconnaissance to areas that are difficult to enter, enables detection and investigation of smuggling and provides the opportunity to expose other environmental crimes such as slash-and-burn or illegal logging.
