The task of maritime surveillance and domain awareness poses a challenge for marine authorities, given the vast areas that require constant monitoring. This is where OceanIntel comes into play.
Ensuring the Security, Safety, and Environmental Preservation of Marine Authorities' Territory
A Maritime Domain Awareness platform is an indispensable tool for marine authorities because it enables them to monitor, manage, and respond to a wide range of activities within their maritime domains, ultimately enhancing security, safety, and environmental protection while promoting the efficient and sustainable use of marine resources.
Why do marine authorities need a Maritime Domain Awareness platform?
A Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) platform is an indispensable tool for marine authorities because it enables them to monitor, manage, and respond to a wide range of activities within their maritime domains, ultimately enhancing security, safety, and environmental protection while promoting the efficient and sustainable use of marine resources.
Marine authorities use a Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) platform for several purposes in their daily operations.
View some of them in the table to the right.
MDA platforms help marine authorities monitor and detect potential threats to national security and defense. This includes tracking the movement of vessels, identifying suspicious activities, and responding to potential security breaches such as piracy, smuggling, or terrorist activities.
MDA systems assist in ensuring the safety of vessels and mariners by providing real-time information about weather conditions, navigational hazards, and the movement of other vessels in congested waterways. This information helps prevent accidents and collisions.
Monitoring the maritime domain is crucial for safeguarding the marine environment. MDA platforms can detect and respond to incidents such as oil spills, illegal fishing, and other activities that may harm marine ecosystems.
When vessels or individuals are in distress at sea, MDA platforms aid in coordinating search and rescue operations. They can help identify the last known positions of vessels or persons in distress and facilitate a timely response.
MDA platforms are vital for customs and border control agencies to detect and prevent illegal activities such as drug trafficking, human smuggling, and the illegal transport of goods. They can identify vessels engaged in suspicious or unauthorized activities.
Governments and organizations can use MDA data to manage maritime resources effectively. This includes regulating fishing activities, monitoring shipping routes, and ensuring the sustainable use of maritime resources.
MDA platforms provide authorities with a comprehensive view of maritime activities, enhancing their situational awareness. This allows for better decision-making, response coordination, and the allocation of resources.
Maritime domains often span multiple countries, and international cooperation is essential for security and safety. MDA platforms facilitate the sharing of information and intelligence with other nations, promoting regional and global maritime security.
Ensuring that vessels comply with international maritime laws and regulations is a significant task. MDA platforms help monitor compliance with laws related to safety, security, environmental protection, and trade.
MDA platforms gather vast amounts of data over time. By analyzing historical data and trends, authorities can make predictions about future maritime activities, enabling proactive measures to address emerging challenges.
“It is important we have a reliable, versatile AIS management and display system. After testing over a dozen AIS systems, we found OceanIntel best meets our challenging needs.”

What challenges can OceanIntel address?
If any of the following points align with your daily challenges, you’ve come to the right place.
Create true ocean intelligence with OceanIntel
OceanIntel keeps track of your everyday operations, helping you stay in-the-know and keep a close eye on your maritime domain. Here are just some of the benefits you get from using OceanIntel in your role as a marine authority:
Would you like to see a demonstration of how OceanIntel can assist you?
Get critical information in real-time
With OceanIntel’s world leading maritime domain awareness platform, trusted by maritime government authorities and commercial partners around the world for over 20 years, you get full transparency about any vessel behaviors in your maritime domain, 24/7.
Visualize past and real-time vessel movements and see a predicted route as well as ETA for specific vessels or monitor which vessels enter a specific area.
We enable marine authorities to create true ocean intelligence for vessel surveillance, subsea asset protection, risk management for illegal marine activities, and successful defense operations.
Use the power of surveillance, intelligence, analytics and data management to monitor and respond to activities in your maritime domain
Here are some of the services of OceanIntel which are typically used by marine authorities to monitor vessel activities in their maritime domain:
Dark Ship detection
Detect dark ships and (be alerted about) abnormal vessel behaviors to stop any illegal fishing and other unauthorized ocean activities that could disturb your maritime domain. (The service applies advanced machine learning to identify fishing patterns and cross reference it with dark AIS transponders or other indications of irregularities.)
How many vessels entered a port or a competing port last year? Which vessels passed through your waters, and how many were carrying dangerous cargo? Does your AtoNs match and support the actual vessel traffic?) Investigate maritime traffic, generate reports as proof of certain maritime data points, get alerts about important events, and base your decisions on derived facts rather than assumptions. Generate valuable information from global maritime data reports, which you can share with other authorities around the world: Marine traffic patterns, volume reports, or dark ship analytics are just some of the reports you can (automatically) receive and work with.
Ship information database
One database with worldwide vessel information at one glance. No need to cross check data over several sources. Save time and just search our historic, real-time, and predictive AIS data base for essential vessel information, such as visualization, owners, IMO, vessel characteristics, managers, sanctions, and port calls.
Do you have too much maritime data that is complex and cumbersome to combine into actionable information?) Gain ultimate ocean intelligence by managing and making sense of large volumes of maritime data from different terrestrial and satellite sources and providers. We enable you to work with cleaned AIS data points, because we allow your AIS data sources to work together effectively. The service is modular and can be scaled to meet any organization’s requirements for the management and distribution of location data. (This solution is aligned with IALA A-124 guidelines for AIS Logical Shore Stations.)
AIS service management
Make sure your AIS infrastructure is set up and running smoothly: Create an AtoN (Aids to Navigation) network, monitor AIS coverage, transmission quality and AIS data. Receive automatic alerts once your AIS infrastructure is impacted.
