The key technological asset of CLS is its platform: an intelligent telecom hub able to process messages from both existing terrestrial and space systems delivering useful information to its customers. Hosted on CLS’s premises, this platform processes millions of messages every day and can customize data distribution to best suit the needs of end-users that are predominantly ship managers and owners.
Real-time multisource tracking and monitoring of your assets are available into an advanced web interface offering: digital nautical charts, alerts on zone/port entry-exit, measures of the distance & calculation of the vessel’s ETA, voyage alerts (off-track, excessive speed, ETA not to be met), vessels’ speed alerts, etc.
Ship managers and owners benefit from the ability to have easy and flexible access to their fuel data. Fuel theft, which has been a recurring problem in many vessels, can now be minimized as CLS’s Sat Box allows you to know the fuel consumption of your vessel and if any fuel has been siphoned off.
Create your own columns with average, accumulation and sum of inputs values for further analysis.
Weather conditions will be provided through the European model ECMWF, an independent intergovernmental organisation supported by 34 states. ECMWF operates 24/7, producing and disseminating weather predictions to the member states. Predictions include baric fields, wind direction, wind strength, sea wave direction and height, swell direction and height, currents, etc.
Every mariner worth his salt understands the importance of weather monitoring in your route. With weather charts, it can be determined easily if your captain should set sail or continue docking in port to avoid a huge tropical storm. Crew safety also improves, as the crew has to go on the deck to perform their routine duties regardless of the weather. Weather data also can influence vessels’ fuel consumption and behaviours.
Optional: Business Intelligence & Data Mix
With increasing importance being placed on analyzing big data for better understanding of processes, even the shipping industry is getting into the fold. There are humongous amounts of data a ship produces daily and you can better understand your vessel with the business intelligence add-on.
All archived data can be accessible for post-voyage and business intelligence analysis to draw vessels operation profiles:
Generate customized weekly or monthly reports as part of a PDCA (Plan Do Act Check) continuous improvement process.
