AIS Vessel Monitoring

There has been mounting evidence of deteriorating conditions and declining populations of living resources throughout much of the world’s oceans.  In an effort to combat the problem, there are a number of protected or environmentally sensitive sea areas such as a Marine Protected Area (MPA) or Particularly Sensitive Sea Area (PSSA). But how can authorities properly monitor the shipping activities in these zones?

In this Use Case:

  • How Satellite AIS can play a critical role in helping to preserve the marine environment
    • by providing authorities with the necessary information and evidence to identify breaches into protected areas
    • hold vessels accountable for any infringement into sensitive zones
