Pole Star’s secure cloud-based MDA solution provides an integrated data management platform for those associated with Homeland Security to rapidly and accurately collect and correlate maritime geospatial data. Utilising secure satellite data (including LRIT, VMS, and SSAS sources), alongside satellite and terrestrial-based AIS data, our patented tracking technology creates a hybrid track of not only your domestic LRIT vessels, but also your non-SOLAS fleet and any maritime asset operating and reporting within your desired area of interest.

This intelligence can be used in homeland protection, customs enforcement, port authority inspections, and by other maritime authorities for the detection of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing, accidents and their investigations, dark ships, and transshipments within Exclusive Economic Zones, Territorial Seas, Fisheries, and Closed Area Zones.
