The Challenge with Maritime Surveillance

Monitoring and intelligence gathering in maritime environments is difficult. The need to cover very large areas and assess multiple vessels, ranging from the very large to the very small, makes identifying threats and determining the adversarial and criminal activities a challenge.
This issue is exacerbated by the quantity, quality, and nature of the data available. Large volumes of information, of varying veracity, delivered in multiple forms, creates a significant burden for analysts.
Consequently, intelligence reporting can be slow, based on incomplete or incorrect data, or risk missing key threats or activities entirely.

Vigilance Maritime is a browser-based, geospatial intelligence platform that eases the analytic burden and helps ensure that accurate and actionable intelligence is delivered quickly. Users are able to centralize and visualize publicly available data, fused with their own data, for near real-time target tracking and alerts.
