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.
