Boatracs Debuts AIS Maritime Application
Boatracs BTConnect AIS (Automatic Identification System) extends the functionality of BTConnect, the most widely used vessel tracking and fleet management software in the U.S. commercial maritime market, by integrating real time messaging and vessel tracking with AIS data on a single display. The AIS Man Overboard (MOB) Alarm Notification System, a joint solution development effort between Boatracs and Orolia sister company McMurdo, is an innovative safety solution that enables distress signals from McMurdo’s Smartfind MOB AIS beacons to be displayed on BTConnect software for accelerated emergency response.
