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.
