Manage & Monitor Your AIS Aids to Navigation Network

Monitor physical AIS Aids to Navigation (AtoN) transponders and generate virtual AtoNs when needed. Get an overview of all AtoNs in your network to make sure your network is setup and running as it should. Thanks to zone-specific alarms and event triggers, you can take proactive measures by monitoring vessel traffic around AtoNs.

Unlock the benefits of our AtoN feature

Reduce time & eliminate risks

With an efficient AtoN monitoring and management system that triggers zone-specific alarms automatically, you can significantly reduce the time spent checking on AtoNs as well as eliminate the risk of manual errors or oversight. 

Increase operational awareness while reducing information overload

Zone-specific alarms and event triggers enable users to take proactive measures to monitor and potentially inform vessel traffic near physical AtoNs 

Save time & money through smart maintenance

Only perform maintenance once the system detects potential performance impacts of an AtoN. 

Are you curious to see how easy it is to get started with managing and monitoring your AtoN network?
