Automatic Identification System (AIS) is the internationally used vessel identification system that transmits the position of a vessel so that other vessels in the vicinity know its position.
International organizations such as the IMO require large commercial vessels to use AIS for safety reasons and to avoid collisions with other vessels.
However AIS is far from perfect. It is very easily hacked or spoofed to provide false readings and when ship crews manipulate AIS data to go ‘dark’ in this way, it usually means they’re using your vessel for their own ends.
But did you know that use of your fleet’s vessels for unauthorized journeys could leave you with more than an increased fuel bill?
Your business could be complicit in fraud, drug dealing, human trafficking and more with the possibility of criminal charges, heavy fines and significant reputational damage as a result.
With Fueltrax EFMS installed on your fleet, every vessel has its own dedicated, tamper-proof, hack-proof GPS transponder on-board. Freeing you to track your fleet with 100% reliable location data and giving you peace of mind that your vessels are exactly where they should be.
For increased situational awareness Fueltrax EFMS can be combined with Fueltrax Vison, our intelligent, purpose built and secure plug-and-play remote video monitoring system. Giving you eyes on board 24/7, it adds another layer of visibility and security to your fleet operations and can also help to drive positive behavioral change from captains and crews.
