Gain more intelligence per dollar spent on surveillance

Effectively direct assets to priority areas, augmenting intelligence from wide-area radio frequency reconnaissance through to high-resolution imaging.

Speed up analysis with automated data processing

Review flagged, significant vessel activity, rather than manually analysing vessel movements to identify key events.

Uncover non-reporting dark vessels

Reveal non-reporting dark vessels through the analysis of multiple sources of satellite data.

Distribute intelligence across your whole organisation

Work from a common maritime operating picture, on any device, in a secure and intuitive web application.

“I'm spending an hour a day reviewing key events, like encounters or vessel detections, as opposed to most of the day manually looking for these things”

— Analyst at the Ministry of Primary Industries in New Zealand during a pilot operation

“This is definitely more intuitive... What I liked about this one in particular, when you come into tracking the vessel, you’ve got this missing AIS data. ”

— Analyst at the Ministry of Primary Industries in New Zealand inspecting a vessel related to a biosecurity inquiry

“Your data has been really helpful, especially for the identification of the ship’s Covid risk in this case”

— Analyst at the Transport Accident Investigation Commission in New Zealand prior to staff boarding a vessel.
