Vissim Today

Vissim’s technologies lie behind some of the world’s largest and most complex vessel traffic management and surveillance systems. Vissim is a highly innovative information technology company and, for more than thirty years, we have provided essential capabilities to our customers to enable them to protect their offshore energy assets and maritime borders against threats at sea and to enhance the efficiency of their offshore and maritime operations.

Vissim delivers turnkey solutions and services for real-time data consolidation and presentation for decsion support. Vissim’s applied science aggregates data from a large number of new or existing sensors, such as radar, AIS, VHF, MET, air quality and CCTV, along with external databases including Lloyds and FairPlay. Information is validated and processed to produce a complete maritime picture via an advanced traffic display and other communication tools, adapted to local circumstances.

A further benefit of Vissim’s solutions is that they are designed to fit existing sensor infrastructures, thus offering significant financial and practical advantages to our customers. Vissim is independent of any hardware and sensor supplier, and this unique attribute allows Vissim to provide our customers with candid and objective points of view.

We are an industrial member of IALA, participating on the VTS and eNav committees.

Vissim has today become an Associated Partner in the STM Validation Project. Vissim acknowledges the STM project as a natural extension of the EfficienSea2 project, where Vissim has delivered a successful pilot for enabling of effective route sharing between different VTS systems in the Baltic. This pilot has proved the technology which potentially can drastically cut reporting for the ship’s crew, while offering authorities better ability of ensuring safe traffic at sea.

Vissim recognizes the STM project as an important research arena for the continued development of the Vissim solutions and looks forward to new challenges.

Vissim has been awarded a contract for an AIS-based system by the Suez Canal Authority (SCA). The turnkey project involves an enablement and training package for local personnel. The canal is approximately 100km long and has between 60 and 90 ships passing through it per day, making it a major traffic hotspot. The system will be operational within six months and is valued at approximately $500,000 excluding add-ons.

– This has been a great win for the company, adding to our existing projects in Egypt and it shows the continued success of our Middle East operations. I believe SCA has chosen the most proven and reliable system for managing such situations, stated Per Arne Henæs (Vissim’s CEO).

The system uses Vissim’s standard proprietary Vessel Traffic Management System technologies for offshore operations and asset protection.
