The main function of VMS is to easily monitor the ship's shipping route / route online through a website (web tracking) which can be accessed via computers, laptops and smartphones anytime and anywhere as long as it is connected to an internet network connection and is useful for being able to find out the ship's position status report every hour using GPS equipment and transmitters placed on the ship and sending data via satellite media.

Mechanism of Vessel Monitoring System Process Flow

The ship’s position is monitored because the transmitter installed on the ship transmits the ship’s position (GPS) data to the satellite, processed at the Processing Center, then submitted to the SOG Server Monitoring Center and forwarded to the tool user / ship owner via the website. In addition to ship position data, as material for analysis / evaluation, information is also obtained regarding: ship speed, ship movement patterns and previous and near real time data records.

Advantages of VMS services for ship owners:
– Ship owners can find out the position of their ship online (web tracking) which is only enough through a computer or smartphone so that it can be accessed anywhere and anytime as long as it is connected to the internet.
– Realtime information for: Latitude – longitude, data transmission time, ship speed and bow.
– When the communication link is not working, the ship can still be monitored so as not to make the ship owner too anxious.
– Can see the ship’s travel route records
