Identify the vessels operating over your cable systems enabling targeted distribution of cable awareness information.
Auditable cable awareness information distribution and accurate vessel identity, position, speed, and course records puts claims on a strong footing.
Reveal the precise position of interaction between a vessel and the cable to localise hard-to-find DC faults.
Identify fishing grounds, uncharted anchorages and other hazards when planning new cable systems.

From the 22nd - 25th April we will be attending this outstanding conference which fosters debate, provides a forum for exchange of ideas and acts as an educational resource for the entire submarine telecommunications community.
From 22nd April we will be accepting orders for AIS Chronicle - the vessel movement monitoring system for submarine cable protection.
The Automatic Identification System is a maritime navigation safety communications system standardised by the ITU and adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
It automatically transmits a vesselâ€™s identity, type, position, course, speed, and navigational status to other ships, SAR aircraft and shore stations.
AIS has been mandatory for vessels of 300 GT and above and all passenger vessels since 2004.
In 2007, the new Class B AIS standard was introduced enabling low-cost ship borne equipment triggering multiple additional national mandates and widespread adoption on smaller vessels.
In 2010 most vessels operating on EU inland waterways were mandated to fit AIS and the entire EU fishing fleet over 15 meters must fit AIS by 2014.
The range at which AIS can be consistently received is largely determined by the distance to the horizon which is determined by the height of the antennae, though contacts can be made at much greater distances due to atmospheric conditions.
