Ports & Harbours
Accurate environmental data is a crucial part of port and harbour planning and operations. Access to timely and meaningful information can assist decision-makers faced with planning, operations, security, and safety.
An ideal environmental monitoring solution for a Vessel Traffic Management System (VTMS) includes moored buoys, fixed platforms and pier-based installations. Typical sensor configurations provide wind speed, wind direction, waves, current speed, current direction, and water level (tide), all managed by one data management system. AIS messages 8 & 21 are broadcast and met ocean data is transmitted in real time to port operation centers, ship operators, bridge crew, and pilots.
AXYS offers custom, self-contained and fully automated weather and water level systems that can be deployed in key locations to facilitate vessel traffic management operations.
