AU as one of the leading companies in Saudi Arabia has taken upon itself to introduce the latest technologies especially these technologies that help keep our troops and civilians' safe and one important system that eclipse all is the COSPAS-SARSAT system over the 3 earth orbits to detect and locate distress beacons to provide real time search and rescue.
AU has implemented AIS solutions to different authorities including commercial and private sectors in Saudi Arabia to create an AIS network that covers all Saudi Arabian coastal borders. AIS is an automatic tracking system that uses transponders on ships and is used by vessel traffic services (VTS). AIS information supplements marine radar, which continues to be the primary method of collision avoidance for water transport.
AU has supplied Saudi Arabia government organizations the GMDSS system which was developed to save lives by modernizing and enhancing the current radio communications system. By utilizing satellite and digital selective calling technology, GMDSS provides a more effective distress alerting system.
AU can provide a Vessel Traffic Management System that allows multiple telematics and sensors to be integrated under a unified platform, and by direct sharing with other resources and government agencies, increases its performance and capabilities to manage, control and eliminates human errors in critical areas such as coastal and ports.
