Vessel Identification and Positioning System (VIPS)®

- intelligent Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance System

Imagine the convenience and effectiveness of a security and surveillance system that manages vessel traffic and facilitates protection of ports, ships and water-side strategic assets.

The Vessel Identification and Positioning System (VIPS®) employs advanced intelligent Vision techniques to detect, identify, track vessels and predict their path in real-time. To facilitate tracking, it has intelligent algorithms to provide information such as length, height, vessel type (vessel classification), latitude, longitude, velocity, heading and time. The system circumvents problems associated with existing radar-based surveillance systems, such as blind spots and resolution limitations, thereby enhancing the capabilities of port operators, and in turn port security. Round-the-clock coastal surveillance is achieved by installing cameras at strategic points, and constantly monitoring the waterway via a remote centralised command and control management.
