Contact us


An AIS network provides authorities with valuable information on routes, cargo and the ships themselves. It is a major task for police, customs, military, Search & Rescue Centers and coastal and harbour authorities to monitor traffic in their territorial waters. AIS increases the situational awareness, the efficiency, the safety and decrease the workload for those authorities tasked with monitoring and controlling coastal and offshore waterways.
