1Spatial Delivers Advanced Geospatial Analysis Subsystem

  • Rating12345

PR – 1Spatial, through its subsidiary ComSine, has delivered to Pole Star Space Applications Limited (UK) an advanced geospatial analysis subsystem to form part of its MarVTS LRIT-DC product and in addition its suite of associated Fleet Management and Alert offerings.

The International Maritime OrganisationÕs (IMO) Long-Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) Regulation i.e. SOLAS V/19-1, requires that in general all ships on international voyage should automatically transmit a GPS position report each 6 hours via a satellite communication system to a Data Centre (DC) established by the Flag the ship is registered to. 1SpatialÕs geospatial components provide Pole Star with the mandatory functionality to allow each DC to establish the relational location of the incoming position reports against a published set of dynamic geographical areas and complex associated position reporting rules (set-up by each participating Government to represent approximately their coastline, territorial sea and outer 1000 nm LRIT zone).

As a result of this project 1Spatial is delighted to announce a new formal partnership with Pole Star. The partnership is an exciting mutually beneficial collaboration that sees Pole StarÕs expertise in the provision of highly successful commercial marine asset tracking services, complementing 1SpatialÕs digital spatial data handling and associated operational software development expertise. In the future and in addition to the continued evolution of Pole StarÕs MarVTS LRIT-DC offerings, 1Spatial will be working with Pole Star to enhance the spatial data management and web mapping services in other Pole Star commercial tracking services and products, through the application of geospatial data management and access standards.

Julian Longson, Business Development Director of Pole Star, commented:

We have been extremely impressed with 1SpatialÕs implementation of our geospatial analysis subsystem Ð the project was delivered on-time and to budget by an extremely competent project team that worked with Pole StarÕs Research and Development team. Their geospatial and access standards domain knowledge was crucial to the success of the project and will continue to be so now that we have formally established a technology development partnership in this regard.

Richard Proud, Managing Director of ComSine added:

We are delighted to be working with Pole Star on the development of their LRIT services and, in the future, other aspects of their asset tracking systems. The Maritime IT sector represents a new business area for us, which we look forward to mutually exploring further. We recognise Pole Star as a leading global company in the provision of operational asset tracking services and having formalised our partnership with them, our complementary skills and experience stand us in good stead to achieve a great deal, both now and in the future.
