Xylem is able to supply several forms of Electronic Navigation including AIS, Radar Beacons (RACON) and many forms of remote monitoring systems. AIS is becoming increasingly popular as it not only provides an electronic position report it can also provide monitoring data and can also transmit weather and hydrological data.
Systems may include sensors and equipment such as:
Current speed & direction in many layers
Significant wave hight
Wide range of parameters available
Vented tide sensor
Doppler current sensor (DCS)
LAN, serial and USB via cable, AIS, VHF, GPRS
Most 3rd party sensors
Metadata stored and transmitted allowing full traceability
Current speed and direction in multiple depths from surface to seabed.
Continuous monitoring of vital parameters at sea and in air.
Real-time sea and air parameters are distributed by the AIS system.
Secure docking and improved cargo handling.
All information available in one real-time web display application.
Sediment movement and dredging planning.
Monitor ocean health and oxygen concentration.
Expandable platform for additional environmental parameters.
Data stored in SQL database for further analysis.
Dynamic tracking of oil spill pollution.
Critical information to stakeholders after natural disasters or accidents at sea.
Improve Port Efficiency
Provide Harbour Master with a complete real-time overview of conditions affecting traffic.
Historical data is valuable for research, science discharge permitting.
Full control of vital parameters when loading/unloading to achieve max efficiency.
Lower insurance cost against environmental, docking and operation damage.
