Dryad Expands VSM Service to Sulu Sea

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

With vessels and crew having become a recent target by the militant jihadist group Abu Sayyaf in the Sulu Sea, it has now become an area of high risk for mariners.

Dryad is therefore expanding its Vessel Safety Monitoring (VSM) service to the Sulu Sea. Managed from our 24-hour Operations Centre by experienced mariners and intelligence analysts, this service continuously tracks clients’ vessels and delivers the most up to date intelligence picture to Masters and shore teams on the latest emerging threats in the area.

To minimise disruption to planned routes, dynamic routing advice will also be offered to Masters so that they can avoid the current location of assailants if deemed necessary to ensure the safety of the vessel.

Use Vessel Safety Monitoring to:
 * Find an alternative solution to armed guards
 * Track your vessels 24/7 by expert mariners and analysts
 * Receive dynamic routing advice around emergent threats
 * Minimise disruption to your operations and contractual agreements
