In the field of the POLARYS project, an application for maritime surveillance and assistance to the navigation will be developed and supported by VDES technology. All information will be available in real time through a GIS 3D application (3D Geographic Information System) designed to be used in both control and command posts, and mobile platforms that have AIS/VDES receivers. In addition, the platform will allow the inclusion of different sensors and alarms related to the maritime and physical safety of vessels, thus providing an integral onboard safety system compatible with VDES.
The POLARYS project is being developed by a consortium led by Retevisión (Cellnex group) that count on the participation of companies Bastet, Egatel, Insitu, Scio and the technology centers Cinae and Gradiant and the collaboration of HisdeSAT. The project has an expected length of 3 years (2016-2018) and has the support and funding of the CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico e Industrial) through the program FEDER INNTERCONECTA-2016 (EXP 00091271 / ITC-20161120).
