February 23, 2021 – Global Spatial Technology Solutions, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Maritime Analytics company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract under the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program to demonstrate an AI-based predictive maintenance capability to optimize maintenance resources and increase the operational availability of defense assets such as ships or submarines. This capability will expand the application suite offered by their Maritime Management Platform OCIANA™ and further grow its maritime AI offerings.
“The growth of Artificial Intelligence enabled applications in the maritime domain is expanding rapidly and we are pleased to include this capability in our OCIANA™ offering”, said Richard Kolacz, CEO of GSTS. This application, which we call OCIANA™ Performance Management, can be implemented onboard Naval platforms as well as all of the 80,000 large scale global oceangoing vessels involved in moving 90% of the worlds’ trade. It is another example of the maritime dual-use AI applications offered by OCIANA™.”
OCIANA™ Performance Management can be implemented on in service or new build platforms to conduct local or remote analysis of systems performance and detect issues which may impact operational performance, maintenance, sparing levels or repair needs. The benefits are optimized maintenance and sparing levels which result in cost savings and increased operational availability.
OCIANA™ is an AI-based platform that ingests large volumes of data from a range of satellite- and ocean-based sensors, which includes information on ocean, weather, vessel, port, and marine species activity. The data is processed using proprietary techniques developed by GSTS researchers to provide decision-making information in near real-time to save lives, energy and the environment.
