Pocket Mariner’s AISWatch service now provides Real-time Remote Vessel Motion Monitoring and situation reporting (RTR-VMM). RTR-VMM enables significant improvements to operations efficiency and vessel utilisation with a direct impact on profitability.
Let marine co-ordinators for Wind Farm and Oil rig services optimise operations from base by knowing real time whether the conditions on the support ships are within the safety parameters for personnel and equipment transfer.
Cruise line operators can check the comfort level for their passengers and see if they are having a bad experience with the ship rolling too much or if the ship is running into serious waves and pitching fiercely?
Check the view right now from the Ship’s bridge deck back at the operations centre. Share the glorious port arrival, sunset and sunrise views from a cruise ship’s bridge deck on the web with current passengers and potential customers.
Instantly know where your ship is and what other vessels are nearby in real-time anywhere in the world.
Remotely monitor equipment, environment and engines on the ship.

AISWatch new features
We have added 3 new features to our commercial AISWatch services for 2016. Mobile geofences, history replay extended to up to a week at a time and GIS information overlays. More about these features below. Please contact us if any of these may be of interest to you firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +44 1291 689202
Attach geofences to moving ships providing a closest point of approach (CPA) or Exclusion zone around it. As with the existing geofences these can be quickly added and monitored on the fly via the AISWatch live chart view. Geofences turn red when they have been triggered.
History replay extension
You can now select from 1 hour up to 7 days of AIS history replay and playback at up to 60x real time (1 minute in 1s) in AIS mode.
Graphical information overlays (GIS)

Augmented Reality with FLIR ONE
Pocket Mariner recently collaborated with Practical Boat Owner to successfully complete a demanding night time sea trial of our popular Boat Beacon app with the FLIR ONE Thermal Imager for iOS; a new, low cost , infra-red thermal imaging camera for the iPhone. The FLIR ONE makes thermal imaging affordable and accessible to a much wider audience at a fraction of the cost of the higher end marine IR imaging devices. Pocket Mariner have ingeniously integrated the live thermal image with their widely acclaimed Boat Beacon Augmented Reality mode providing identification, distance and bearing of the ships and Aids To Navigation in view at night and in fog. We wanted to see how well and how far off we could spot ships via their infra-red signature and if the FLIR ONE could help with searching for a Man Overboard (MOB).
Practical Boat Owner, the UK’s leading boating magazine, bravely deployed their editors, David Pugh and Ben Meakin, together with Ben’s Impala 28 yacht , “Polly” and intrepid “Woman Overboard” volunteer, Laura, along with Pocket Mariner’s CEO, Steve, on a pitch black night in Southampton water.
Here’s what we saw.
