Guardian Asset Protection

Mark shipping lanes with virtual buoys for easy navigation at ports

Proactive Protection

Guardian from Vesper Marine helps clients like Port of Halifax, Ports of Auckland, Port Maputo, King Abdullah Port and many more by marking shipping lanes or shipping channels using virtual aids to navigation. This helps marine traffic navigate safely around dangerous hazards or protected zones. Ports also use this technology to dynamically change shipping lanes in difficult weather conditions.

Vessels see the shipping lanes on their navigation systems and steer clear of any dangerous situations. Vessel behavior is monitored by Guardian for potential collisions with the marked hazards and in case of risk, automated messages are sent directly to the vessels on their navigation systems to take corrective action.

Virtual buoys can also be used to augment physical buoys in locations where they are not appropriate, are expensive or impossible to deploy. 

Mark shipping lanes, avoid hazards

Natural hazards

Prevent collisions with reefs, shellfish beds, ice or moving sandbars which could threaten the safety of people and marine vessels.

Shipping channels

Manage shipping activity in difficult navigation zones and changing weather conditions.

Man made hazards

Keep vessels safe from collisions with shipwrecks and running into oil spills.

What is Guardian?

Guardian from Vesper Marine is a 24/7 asset protection system that prevents accidental vessel damage to your marine assets or collisions with hazards. It gives vessels visibility of your marine assets or hazards via their electronic navigation systems, monitors their live positions, evaluates their behavior. If they present a collision risk to your assets or hazards, Guardian proactively sends both the vessel and you an alert. The alert goes directly to the electronic navigation system of the vessels so they can take corrective action.
