Maritime data and analytics firm Windward is set to launch the next generation of its maritime intelligence solution, Marint.

Maritime data and analytics firm Windward is preparing to launch the next generation of its maritime intelligence solution, Marint.

The new solution is designed to help security and intelligence agencies identify risks at sea in advance, which will extend the critical time available to prepare and take action.

Marint is capable of discovering hidden behaviour patterns, vessel networks and suspicious activities, and offers powerful early warning and target discovery systems.

"Marint is radically changing how security and intelligence agencies identify known and unknown threats at sea."

Windward co-founder and CEO Ami Daniel said: "The Windward Mind is transforming maritime data [from] 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."

Marint’s early warning system will deliver real-time alerts to ships that match each agency’s interests and specific risk indicators, while its target discovery system will automatically flag ships that deviate from their patterns, suggesting a potential new threat.

In addition, the tool is capable of analysing the patterns of individual ships engaged in illicit activities.

The software offers activity-based intelligence (ABI), focused on the analysis of all available data and revealing new and unknown targets.

It also provides tools to tackle the challenges they face in a complex maritime conditions, the company stated.
