Shared Vessel Monitoring System offered by Trackwell

Trackwell is pleased to announce its new customized Vessel Monitoring Systems (VMS) solution where neighbouring countries, regional fisheries offices and other maritime authorities can share one VMS. The system allows for data and information sharing between any number of operational users, while still granting the countries the ability to tailor-make the scope of information and data that is shared between parties. For example, different countries can grant one another visibility access to certain zones within the EEZ (extended economy zone), increasing the monitoring and alerting capabilities of both parties, while simultaneously restricting the visibility access to other parts of the EEZ, wherever they see fit. Along with the optional integrated Electronic Reporting System (ERS) module managing catch and activity messages for fisheries management, the new sharing solution is the latest feature of Trackwell´s state-of-the-art vessel monitoring system. The company also recently introduced the FLUX fisheries connection to its VMS/ERS. Alongside its new complementary features, the Trackwell VMS offers extensive monitoring and alerting options, including closed zone monitoring where vessel speed can be monitored for fishing versus cruising speed. The system also monitors the reception of vessel locations according to schedule, the validity of fishing licenses, and official certificates of seaworthiness. In all cases, Trackwell´s VMS provides customized solutions and technical support for a wide variety of needs. The Trackwell vessel monitoring system handles thousands of vessels every day, and is used by fisheries authorities, coastguards and navies for surveillance, search and rescue, resource management and fisheries control around the world. The system is fully compliant with international fisheries regulations, and facilitates the exchange of information between authorities, neighbouring countries...

New Electronic Reporting System (ERS) added to Trackwell’s VMS

Trackwell recently launched a new version of its ERS module into the suite of fisheries management solutions, to handle catch and activity messages originated in the electronic logbook.  Unlike most other ERS systems available today, Trackwell’s ERS can be fully integrated into its Vessel Monitoring System, as an optional module. Trackwell ERS handles all types of reports from electronic logbooks (COE, CAT/DCA, COX, TRA, POR, DEP, CON, etc.) and supports the currently most or all communications methods in use. The ERS module is offered as an optional extension to the VMS or as a standalone system. The ERS shares all the infrastructure of the VMS platform, including vessel registry data, map interface, alert management, zone monitoring and more.   Benefits with integrated system By integrating the systems, the customer can save significant amount of money spent on separate computer infrastructure and the complexity of external connection between ERS and VMS.  The user can, in a simple way, compare ERS data with VMS data in order to find potential misreporting.  The user can view received ERS reports collocated with the VMS reports stream, comparing vessel location at the time of reporting with respect to EEZ maps and fishing zones. With a single mouse click, the user can see what amount of catch has been reported by each vessel in the current or previous fishing trips.  The system calculates the reported total catch on board at each time.  Built in reports allow various analyses of catch reporting, including total reported catch per zone, flag state, individual vessels over a selected time interval.  Automatic monitoring of quota status for individual flag states,...
