Windward, a maritime analytics company that recently received $10.8 million in funding for its data platform, has launched the latest version of its MARINT maritime intelligence solution.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}MARINT is used by security and law enforcement agencies around the world to pre-emptively identify threats before they reach their shores. It uses Windward Mind – the company’s data platform – to analyse information and uncover patterns in ship behaviour and suspicious activities.  

The new version adds an Early Warning system which provides alerts on ships that match an agency’s risk profile, as well as a Target Discovery system, which identifies unusual behaviour to flag potential new threats.

“The oceans are today's 'wild west' as ships, and those who send them, can easily conceal and manipulate their identities, activities and cargoes,” said Ami Daniel, Windward's co-founder and CEO.

“The Windward Mind is transforming maritime data - massive, fragmented and unreliable - into knowledge, by mapping the individual DNA of each ocean-going vessel worldwide to create a full account of each vessel's journeys, activities, ports of call, and identifying information.”

“Powered by this unique data platform, MARINT is radically changing how security and intelligence agencies identify known and unknown threats at sea.”

Windward says MARINT is the first solution to use Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI) in a marine environment. The company claims that ABI uses all available data, moving the focus away from individual vessels for a more holistic picture of potential threats.

“In today's complex and interconnected world, Activity-Based Intelligence allows the most sophisticated security agencies to identify unknown threats by analysing massive amounts of data that reveal hidden connections and patterns,” said Omer Primor, product manager for MARINT.

“We are excited to be bringing this approach to the maritime world, allowing our clients to shift from focusing on individual, known targets, to identifying previously undetected threats and patterns at sea.”{/mprestriction}
