Spire Maritime AIS data provides shore-side authorities with a better understanding of the who, why, what, and where, all of which provide comprehensive risk and vulnerability analysis for Search and Rescue resource planning

Maritime AIS data continues to grow in importance as a powerful aid in Search and Rescue (SAR) operations, as this data facilitates a rapid, targeted response to distress notifications. Spire AIS data pinpoints the last known position, course, heading, and speed of the vessel in distress.
