Indonesian coastal awareness enhanced by Xanatos system

Xanatos Marine reports that it has successfully conducted a trial on sixteen Indonesia Maritime Police (IMP) vessels of a system that can transmit AIS and ARPA targets surrounding the vessel over 2,000 km back to headquarters.

AIS data generally has a transmission range of approximately 60 NM, but Xanatos Marine says that the company and partners have come up with a way of extending this for the IMP, to cope with the fact that the country has a lengthy coastline and it was neither cost efficient nor practical to place AIS base stations along its length.

The solution has seen sixteen of the Maritime Police Vessels equipped with radar and AIS, with data being sent to Xanatos Marine’s TITAN Voyager system which converts that data to an encrypted signal.

Using a Rockwell Collins radio, this data is then transmitted to Jakarta. The data received at IMP headquarters is decrypted and displayed by Xanatos Marine’s TITAN Sentinel VTS software.

The patrol vessels are then displayed in real time on the national overview screen along with all AIS equipped vessels and ARPA targets surrounding those vessels.

Xanatos Marine, through local agents PT Transavia Utama of Jakarta, says it is planning further installations on patrol vessels and strategically selected ground stations equipped with AIS, Radar and CCTV to provide complete situational awareness.
