BigOceanData offers a wide range of fleet management and situational awareness tools which have been developed through close cooperation with some of the most respected names in the maritime industry.

With these tools you can not only track your assets, be they vessels or aircraft, but also create and manage routes, zones and set up rules-based alerts or calculate ETA’s and distance to destination.  We also offer a comprehensive suite of reports and vessel analytics which, when combined with our weather, piracy and notice to mariner data, gives our clients valuable decision-making intelligence.

For incident investigation we offer historical track analysis and vessel replay tools and for the more in-depth cases we also have complex query and area replay features in the BigOceanData tool-box.

BigOceanData is a highly configurable feature rich platform built to combine data from many different sources including AIS (both terrestrially and satellite sourced), plus a number of private subscription customer services such as Fleet Broad Band (FBB), VSAT, Inmarsat-C, or Iridium. BOD can also be configured to receive data from Argos-CLS, Skywave, SSAS or GSM.
