Safety and efficiency are two keywords for Saab’s maritime traffic management business. Our software solutions are used on ships, in ports and around coasts throughout the world. Others who need this detailed information include pilots and dredging ships, oil pipeline inspections and wreck surveys. Managing maritime traffic requires solving immediate challenges and planning ahead. The choice of supporting tools is a strategic one. What you decide on is likely to be with you for years to come. Saab offers a comprehensive suite of innovative products to make maritime operations safer, more efficient and more secure. These solutions allow our customers around the world to: run efficient ports; manage safety and efficiency of traffic on waterways; protect the environment; support law enforcement and coast guards; perform underwater surveys; and perform precise navigation.
Today, ships often lie and wait to be allowed to come into the quayside. This is an incredible waste of money, and it harms the environment. Saab's traffic management system enables precise and advanced planning of routing, to ensure that a ship arrives in a port exactly on time. Traffic management in ports means that all vessels are managed by a traffic management center. Saab also supplies the radar stations and cameras required for the real-time tracking and monitoring of maritime traffic. Modified systems are available for rivers and canals. Saab’s systems can be found in Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe, as well as the coasts of India and rivers in China. Saab’s traffic management system is made up of many parts that together create greater security for both seafarers and those who monitor an area.
Pilots, who have to handle large ships in confined areas, can obtain assistance from a navigation system with ultrahigh precision to within a centimeter. The tool can be likened to an advanced GPS. There is also a special administration and planning tool that handles the scheduling of vessels, plans piloting and servicing, and administers port dues and invoicing. The aim within the maritime industry is to control traffic the same way the aviation world uses slot times. It requires precise, advanced planning of shipping routes, in terms of course and speed, to ensure that a ship arrives in a port exactly on time. Keeping track of ships out on the open sea is another challenge. This can be solved by equipping all vessels with Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponders. Saab is in the process of developing the next generation of transponders, which will provide much more information than is available today.
