Coastal AIS applications
AIS network has been deployed on a national basis in a number of
countries including Greece and Croatia. The MariWeb™
system can be used
for safety, security, protecting the maritime environment and enhancing
economic activity through detailed planning and the management of
maritime traffic routes.
Typical uses when used by Coastal Authorities include:
- Collecting of light dues / dredging dues
- Ensuring the observance of maritime reserves and generating alerts and AIS broadcast warning messages when these are violated
- Protection of fishing grounds
- Ensuring that Traffic Management Schemes are observed
- The broadcast of weather warnings
- Targeted warning messages to vessels approaching, leaving or in particular geographic areas
The basic modules for a Coastal Authority AIS network are:
- MariWeb™ Central Data Server [CDS] with Web Services interface for integration to legacy and third party systems
- A number of AIS Physical Shore Stations (with the MariWeb™ Base Station Controller [BSC] for access to advanced AIS Physical Shore Station [PSS] features such as Web Services and anti-spoofing firewall)
- The MariWeb™ Chart Server [MCS]
- The MariWeb™ Event Manager [MEM]
- The MariWeb™ Human Machine Interface [HMI]
- The MariWeb™ Network Monitoring System [NMS]
- The MariWeb™ Reporting system including the MariWeb™ Report Creator [MRC], the MariWeb™ Report Generator [MRG] and the MariWeb™ Report Plotter.
The Coastal Authorities system can be enhanced by including the MariWeb™ Archive Server [MAS] that will store many years worth of detailed AIS data on line for later analysis (used for security, traffic planning, port planning, AtoN system designs) and reporting.
