ARMS is changing how and when vessels, shoreside managers, and the logistics industry receive risk and threat intelligence.
Unknown risks and threats in the maritime environment cost hundreds of millions in extra operating costs and increase the overall price of goods to consumers. These risks and threats are now identified using the ARMS Platform to protect ships, crew members, and cargo where it matters most.
ARMS provides risk and threat information automatically to vessels (Cargo, Cruise, Large Yacht) and shoreside managers based on geographic position while integrating vessel specific response protocols and providing a secure portal to report risk.
The key to the ARMS™ platform is IMSA’s Global Intelligence, Information, and Communications Center (G-I2C). Within this state of the art facility, highly experienced personnel gather, correlate, validate, and disseminate real time intelligence to vessel personnel 24/7 with worldwide communication support.
Real Time Geo-Location based Risk/Threat Alerts to vessels worldwide.
Create vessel specific procedures to align with regulatory agencies, company protocols and insurance requirements.
24/7 Intelligence through IMSA’s exclusive, state of the art, G-I2C.
Notification tabs for Flag State, Class Society, Company, and Government Agencies.
Dashboards provide fleet managers and shoreside personnel vessel locations, current threats, and distresses.
Distributed awareness allows crew members, owners, and management to have information at the same time.
Port Delays and Closures can impact operations for vessels of all types. These issues reduce general vessel efficiency leading to millions in additional operating costs. When Crucial Cargo is delayed this results in large impacts on complete logistic systems thereby negatively affecting the chain all the way down to the consumer.
Civil issues continue to escalate to different port related metropolitan areas. Civil issues cause unforeseen port closures and delays resulting in additional shipping costs and missed logistics movements along with threats to passengers and crew. ARMS provides the latest information on these issues for better logistics planning.
Maritime Piracy, Security, and Threat issues have been around for hundreds of years. Current threat data companies don’t provide information in real-time to help vessels and their shore-side managers make better decisions. Through IMSA’s G-I2C (Global Intelligence, Information and Communications Center) current piracy and maritime threat information is updated through the ARMS platform in real time.
Major disease outbreaks and health epidemics cause issues primarily with passengers and crew. Exposure to medical related issues adds additional costs through mitigation but also negative publicity. The ARMS platform provides a single source for specific or geographic health issues and epidemics worldwide.
ARMS provides weather information for major worldwide weather issues so you can stay informed of how these events could affect your shipboard operations and route planning. IMSA has an exclusive partnership with WRI (Weather Routing Inc.) for their proprietary weather alerts which automatically populate into the ARMS platform. IMSA also gathers additional weather data from government sources around the world for all of our weather related alerts. IMSA clients can reach out directly to WRI for customized weather routing forecasts.
Mariners worldwide are familiar with the GMDSS system and information it provides. Through the ARMS platform mariners now receive this information in a geo-specific format providing the NAVTEX information in a timely useful format with notifications.
Many governments identify cyber issues as the number one threat facing companies around the world. The maritime sector is extremely vulnerable and has suffered several attacks and attempted attacks in recent history. ARMS provides users with worldwide alerts on cyber threats and issues.
Risks and Threats continue to expand to areas in the world typically deemed safe. Large yacht captains and crews don’t have real-time access to risks and threats. ARMS provides a complete geographically specific risk and threat profile so yacht crews can make better decisions on vessel movements.
Through the integrated ARMS platform, yacht managers can access (through any internet enabled device) the real-time location of all their vessels, the risks affecting their vessels, and communicate through instant messaging directly to crews along with several other enhanced features. ARMS saves yacht managers time and money by helping them better organize their vessel operations.
Through the easy to use ARMS shipboard user interface, cargo vessel crews no longer need to monitor hundreds of internet feeds or hope to get an email about a potential threat. ARMS automatically monitors all threats and provides alerts to crews based on their specific parameters. ARMS improves operations, reduces workloads, and decreases long term shipping costs.
Through the integrated ARMS platform, cargo fleet managers can access (through any internet enabled device) the real-time location for all of their vessels, the risks affecting their vessels, and communicate through instant messaging directly to crews along with several other enhanced features. ARMS saves fleet managers time and money by helping them better organize their vessel operations.
