Shore-based vessel monitoring

Horizon is a shore-based management and monitoring solution.  Designed for Vessel Traffic, Port Monitoring, SAR, and Aids to Navigation centres, Horizon provides clients with a real-time AIS data display of Class A, Class B, Aids to Navigation (AtoN), and standard SAR aircraft. Authorized clients can send and receive safety related, and application specific AIS messages (ASM).

Horizon’s interface and display of AIS related information offers a substantial leap forward in the ability to communicate and interact with vessels. Horizon is a Microsoft Windows software application.


Situational Awareness

SeaScape, ICAN’s solution for the display and management of real-time vessel data, improves efficiency and safety in today’s fast paced marine navigation environments. SeaScape provides Port and Waterways managers worldwide with increased situational awareness, and the tools to monitor and communicate critical information to mariners.

Features include the display of real-time information on a browser-based plotter, reports on vessels entering and exiting designated areas, notices to inform vessels about dynamic navigational issues, and environmental messages to inform vessels of dynamic environmental conditions.

As a browser-based solution, it adds increased accessibility for users, as operators can log in from any location. No standalone applications are required, which greatly reduces the cost and simplifies administration processes. 


Data Distribution and Management

DataSwitch is a data routing and management software application that provides a reliable flow of data to your environment. DataSwitch supports the functionality defined in IALA Recommendation A-124.  It is ideal for the collection, filtering, logging, and sharing of real-time data over networks.

For shore-based networks, DataSwitch enables the flow of information from one or more base stations, receivers and sensors to a control center. Similarly, a VTS center can send vital information to a regional headquarters, and then on to a national entity via another DataSwitch.

For a vessel-based network, DataSwitch can send information from any attached NMEA devices (sensors) to any number of stations on the vessel. The distribution of both standard and proprietary data messages from one central location to shared locations makes DataSwitch essential in many diverse environments.


Data Recording and Playback

DataStore is a real-time data storage and playback system.  Compliant with e.g. Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle products, the system can be configured to store all data or a subset with storage requirements varying accordingly.  DataStore provides authorized users with the ability to replay data based on various filters, for display in client software, distributed to other applications, or stored as files.  DataStore consists of a Windows service, and a Microsoft Windows application.


AIS Network Management and Monitoring

Maestro is a real time AIS Network management and monitoring system.  Compliant with IALA AIS Service Management (AIS-SM) guidelines, Maestro acts as the controlling entity for each component within the AIS network. Maestro performs real time monitoring and displays errors and alarms associated with the AIS system.  Maestro provides authorized users with the ability to perform various administrative tasks as it understands the communication relationships between the AIS-LSS’s, AIS-PSS’s, various clients and applications.  Maestro consists of a Windows service, and a web based user interface. 

Ocean Insight

Shore based Analysis and Reporting

Ocean Insight is a Shore based Analysis and Reporting solution.  Designed to interface with DataStore, Ocean Insight provides authorized users with the ability to perform analytical functions on recorded AIS data.  Reports can be designed to quantify any number of data statistics, and can be generated manually, or automatically based on a schedule. Ocean Insight is offered as an add-on module for Maestro.


Surveillance and tactical information

Sentinel is an AIS surveillance and tactical information solution.  Sentinel offers standard AIS and private communication capabilities to deliver tracking information to all networked Sentinel participants.  Sentinel is offered as an add-on module for Horizon and Aldebaran.


Onboard Electronic Chart System (ECS)

Aldebaran is an Electronic Chart System.  Designed with advanced navigation and communication features for use by professional mariners, Aldebaran offers complete AIS (Automatic Identification System) and VDES (VHF Data Exchange System), a multitude of electronic chart formats and a variety of module options.  Aldebaran is a Microsoft Windows software application.


Airborne Electronic Chart System (ECS)

Pegasus is designed with advanced navigation and communication features for use by professionals for improved airborne situational awareness.

The ECS offers complete AIS (Automatic Identification System) and VDES (VHF Data Exchange System) integration with the ability to display static, dynamic, and other related information in real-time on a multitude of electronic chart formats. As well, the ECS has the ability to send safety related text messages to other aircraft, vessels and shore-based administrators.
