SIRM with FleetonCloud FOLLOWER offers an integrated solution for fleet management with advanced tracking and performance monitoring features and new responsive web interface. Follower allows continuous and accurate monitoring of the fleet through the use of Inmarsat-C, onboad AIS or using the Cloud Gateway SIRM connected to Fleet Broadband or VSAT modem.
SIRM, with this solution, offers one of the best technology in vessel tracking and monitoring with the introduction of a global AIS tracking system. SIRM has specific agreements to expandits coverage with global satellite-based AIS data and monitor vessels beyond coastal regions with a cost-effective solution. SIRM combines terrestrial-based AIS, satellite-based AIS and VSAT/FBB position reports to maximize information acquired from each vessel.
Thanks to the acquisition and management of on board messages (Noon / Daily), the use of C-MAP, professional meteo forecast service and other advanced control functionality, Follower is a tool for improving fleet operations and remote risk management processes.
Follower is the ideal solution for a proactive approach to voyage management and for a complete control of the fleet in a simple and intuitive way. The real-time tracking and tools for processing and analyzing data (consumption, speed, bunkers) ensure continuous performance monitoring of ships and simple tools to manage compliance with the MRV Regulation of the European Union.
The platform is organized into two main areas of operation:
- ship management, through a contextual menu on the left side of the screen to view and manage all the information of a specific ship in the fleet;
- fleet management,through a context menu on the right side of the screen, with access to all the information of the fleet and the main configuration parameters of the platform available for the user.
- Fleet tracking from desktop PC, laptop or smartphone without additional software installation;
- Position report through Inmarsat-C, AIS, VSAT, FBB and web service
- C-MAP professional charts with weather layer overlay (worldwide coverage and up to 72 hours forecast)
- Acquisition and automated management of NOON / DAILY report, historicizing of information and proactive analysis of the data entered with thresholds management for the main parameters
- Correlation of ship position and NOON/Daily Massagers (consumption, rpm, weather, etc.)
- Schedule management, planned routes and actual routes
- Gestione schedule, rotte pianificate e rotte effettive
- Notification engine position based (geo-fencing), creation of special areas as an overlay on the map
- Unified contact (email, chat or VoIP call)

What is the Automatic Identi cation System (AIS)?
The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) requires AIS to be fitted aboard international voyaging ships with gross tonnage (GT) of 300 or more. AIS is an automated tracking system used on ships for identifying and locating other vessels and is used in navigation primarily for collision avoidance. The AIS transpondersautomatically broadcast information, such as their position, speed and heading, at regular intervals via a VHF transmitter built into the transponder. Shipboard AIS transponders have a horizontal range that is highly variable but typically only about 35 nautical miles (NM). However, the signal has a vertical range over 200 NM, and over the past few years polar orbiting satellites have been launched that can pick up these signals.
