Monitoring vessel movements, analyzing risk and activating alerts

Underwater Pipes

Ultimate protection

Guardian:protect combines all the functionality of Guardian:mark and Guardian:monitor, plus the ability to protect your assets by setting smart rules that trigger proactive alerts directly to vessels’ navigation systems. 



Guardian:protect is a 24/7 web-based service that proactively intervenes when it detects vessel activity that presents a risk. The solution is constantly monitoring all AIS vessel traffic for breaches of customizable smart rules and automatically alerts both you and the vessel if a breach is detected.

Guardian:protect helps prevent incidents such as collisions between vessels and marine assets that are subsea or on the water surface .

How it works


Widespread Use Cases

Guardian:protect is unique in its ability to differentiate between vessels that are operating normally (and therefore not a risk) and those that are potentially about to damage your asset. It gives both passive and active protection against higher risk activity near:

Comprehensive Functionality

Rich features enable customization and control of how assets are marked, how alert rules are configured and what proactive messages are sent to vessels.

  • Create multiple protection zones around your assets by defining buffer areas or drawing specific coordinates.

  • Route position lists and asset location coordinates can be uploaded in a variety of coordinate formats.

  • Set up vessel groups and assign individual vessels to groups: e.g. trusted vessels such as work boats and tenders.

  • Configure alerts based on smart rules including vessel type and vessel groups, speed over ground, change in speed (sudden slowing), change in direction (veering off course).

  • Changes to rules can be tested using historical data, rather than waiting months for the next event to test their effectiveness.

  • Interrogate individual vessel details, track the vessel, and measure the distance from the asset.

  • Integrate radar information to include non AIS vessels, icebergs, oil spills and other radar enabled targets to determine risk.

  • Define the type of alarm based upon severity: raise audible and visible alarms within the control room or network operations center and send automatic SMS or email to a defined group of users.
