Improving maritime security

To improve the security of maritime transportation, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has mandated all passenger and cargo ships over 500 gross tonnages to install a Ship Security Alert System (SSAS). The comprehensive ShipLoc product uses the Argos system to allow ship owners to meet IMO standards and keep constant track of their fleet. If intruders board a ship, ShipLoc lets the crews send an alert signal automatically and discreetly to teams ashore. ShipLoc is part of an exclusive agreement with the International Maritime Bureau's Piracy Reporting Center and is the only product on the market to be a proven antipiracy tool.
