Protecting launch windows
Rocket launches can proceed without disruption from vessels accidentally entering the safety zone beneath the flight path.
Guardian:protect marks the safety zone with Virtual Aids to Navigation (VAtoN) prior to a launch. These are visible on vessels’ navigation systems.
Prior to the launch countdown, Guardian sends a proactive message to all marine traffic near the safety zone warning them of the launch.
Guardian monitors the safety zone during countdown, automatically sending a message to the navigation system of any vessel approaching the zone. The message alerts them of the launch and asks them to alter course to stay out of the safety zone.
