Argos is a unique worldwide location and data collection system dedicated to studying and protecting the environment.
Argos-based surveillance system designed for accurate detection of subversive behaviour such as piracy and providing support for commercial vessels, adventurers and yacht races.
Improving maritime security
To improve the security of maritime transportation, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has mandated all passenger and cargo ships over 500 gross tonnage to install a Ship Security Alert System (SSAS). The comprehensive ShipLoc product uses the Argos system to allow ship owners to meet IMO standards and keep constant track of their fleet. If intruders board a ship, ShipLoc lets the crew send an alert signal automatically and discreetly to teams ashore. ShipLoc is part of an exclusive agreement with theInternational Maritime Bureau’s Piracy Reporting Center and is the only product on the market to be a proven antipiracy tool.
The fight against piracy
The number of acts of piracy is on the increase. Each year hundreds of attacks around the world are recorded by the International Maritime Bureau (IMB). To combat this scourge, CLS has developed solutions for tracking ships and requesting assistance, which comply with international standards. CLS has equipped thousands of ships with its products, ShipLoc, LRIT, and SAT-AIS. These services enable shipping companies to track their own ships but also maritime safety agencies to determine at any time the location of all their country's ships.
