Before introduction of it, it had taken much time to monitor the movements of our own ships.
Before the integration of the J-Marine GIS with the AIS information has been established in our company, we monitored and grasped the position information on our own ships by automatically transmitting the signals of the GPS carried on each ship in the intervals of one hour.
However, this information could define the positions of those ships, but it was impossible to make clear the surrounding conditions (for example, such as other ships in the vicinity, and meteorological and oceanographic conditions). Also, there was no playback capability for verification of accidents.
The background of introducing the J-Marine GIS was based on our concept that our company should embody the future vessel management system based on our participation in the study of advance navigation with Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology.
