Familiarize with Busy Ports Using AIS Data Visualization


Port Approach is a sophisticated VR training solution developed by Chaac Technologies for naval warfare officers. This immersive experience utilizes historic AIS (Automatic Identification System) data to create a realistic visualization of busy ports.

By familiarizing trainees with the intricate dynamics of port environments, Port Approach enhances navigational proficiency and situational awareness, crucial for efficient and safe port operations.

Port Approach

Port Approach leverages historic AIS data to recreate virtual versions of busy ports, providing naval officers with an in-depth understanding of port operations. This training tool allows trainees to view AIS information for all ships, observe multiple overhead perspectives, and listen to simulated radio communications.

The goal is to build familiarity with port environments and understand the patterns and activities that define busy ports.

Training Overview​

Port Approach offers a comprehensive and immersive training environment, enabling trainees to:

Realistic Port Visualization: Historic AIS data recreates a virtual version of a busy port, allowing trainees to experience the complexity of port operations.

AIS Information Analysis: View AIS data for all ships within the port, helping trainees understand the movement and positioning of vessels.

Multiple Overhead Perspectives: Observe the port from various overhead views, providing a detailed understanding of port layout and vessel traffic.

Simulated Radio Communications: Listen to simulated radio communications to learn how information is exchanged in real port operations, enhancing communication skills.

Pattern Recognition: Understand the pattern of life in busy ports, recognizing the activities and routines that characterize these environments.
