Alert system wins innovator award

ADVERTISEMENT

A new software platform that provides real-time, onboard alerts for maritime uses received the Chattanooga Technology Council’s Early Innovator Award in November.

The beta version of ARMS displays risk and threat information to vessels at sea that is geo-location specific, according to Corey Ranslem, chief executive officer of International Maritime Security Associates. IMSA has partnered with Bluewater Superyacht Bridge Services in Fort Lauderdale to deliver the platform to yacht and commercial markets.

“It also integrates the vessel’s specific response protocols,” Ranslem said. “It is a first of its kind in the maritime industry. The automated alerts show port and waterway delays and closures, civil unrest and terrorism, migrants, piracy, navigation hazards, medical warnings, as well as major weather and notice to mariners.”

The platform is supported by IMSA’s Global Intelligence, Information and Communications Center (G-I2C), which has experienced watch-standers covering worldwide risks and threats around the clock.
