Pole Star’s Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) solution provides full visibility of your marine assets and logistics, and enables vessel and port activity monitoring, trend identification, and vessel behaviour analysis.
For ship owners, operators, and managers, MDA provides insight for pre-journey planning and ongoing journey checks, crew and cargo safety, business continuity, and competitive advantage, while for financial institutions, MDA enables a granular look at vessel activity for in-depth vessel investigations.
How it works
Vessel Monitoring: Track, monitor, and review the historical movements and ongoing progress of any ship.
Our patented persistent tracking technology combines secure LRIT, VMS, and SSAS data, alongside satellite and terrestrial-based AIS data for a reliable and accurate hybrid track, providing you with comprehensive situational awareness for better and fast decision-making.
Vessel Investigations: Thoroughly investigate a vessel’s real-time, historical, and ongoing journey at a granular level, including ship-to-ship (STS) transfer risk, historical tracks, vessel replay, and ownership details.
MDA can be used to identify: high-risk ports, sanctions zones, dangerous weather conditions, piracy attacks, environmental regulatory zones, and compliant routes.
Choose from a full global view, or spot-check regionally to see the most recent AIS and satellite positions of over 250,000 vessels.
Near-Real Time Tracking
View fast and accurate global position reporting. Position reports show date, time, speed, heading, voyage status, port of destination and ETA.
See which ships are currently located within a user-defined radius of any ship or location. View the competitive landscape in a snapshot to facilitate decision making, particularly when requesting assistance.
Search for any ship by name, IMO number, MMSI or call sign, and add a ship to your fleet at the click of a button. View vessel characteristics and particulars, including owner and manager details, as well as recent port calls.
View vessel movement history for immediate online analysis, with historical data visible for up to 12 months.
Apply exception-based notifications to any ship.
Download historical data in CSV format for analysis, sharing with colleagues, or evidentiary purposes using an advanced reporting engine with queries and filters.
Ensure compliance by using up-to-date industry and environmental zones (including ECAs, EEZs, high-risk areas, environmental and regulatory zones) or create your own custom zones to view your fleet in relation to nearby and current threats, regional risks and regulatory requirements.
Display 30 days historical & 5 days forecasted meteorological conditions on the interactive map, including a wide range of weather and environmental layers. Our high quality weather data is updated every 6 hours and provided by Meteo Group.
