Irish Coast Guard Case


Safety at Sea With Reliable AIS Technology

Advanced and reliable technology is a vital part of the services provided by the Irish Coast Guard. GateHouse Maritime supports the hardworking members of the Irish Coast Guard with state-of-the-art software tools.

More specifically, GateHouse Maritime has provided a customised online Automatic Identification System (AIS) system with advanced analytics that delivers a comprehensive and operational maritime overview, including features such as:

  • Collision WatchDog (Advanced Event Detection)
  • Message routing from vessels to a particular control centre
  • Support for multiple display units on the same operator machine
  • Redundant monitoring


The AIS system has and will play an important role in saving lives and property, and protecting the marine environment. Being a supplier to life-saving organisations pledges beyond merely delivering a standard solution. With the stakes so high, it is important to have a reliable, adaptable AIS management and display system. The technology must adhere to the highest standards regarding reliability as well as compliance with the latest advancements within the field.

Technological advances have led to great improvements in vessel tracking tools and information that can be leveraged to make SAR activities more efficient. Every second counts and real-time intelligent event detection is a gamechanger in the delivery of timely responses. Furthermore, data services and information sharing has vastly improved. Information can now be automatically distributed to a range of stakeholders. The distribution is secure and it allows the information to be filtered according to the needs of the stakeholders.
