FLUX fisheries connection added to Trackwell VMS

Trackwell‘s Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) has now been extended to support the FLUX connection for VMS and Electronic Reporting System (ERS) data.  FLUX* is a web service based communication protocol recently introduced by the European Union (EU) to replace the previous HTTPS based communications of messages between countries and organizations. Trackwell‘s VMS is a state of the art vessel monitoring system which has an integrated module to handle catch and activity messages for fisheries management.  It can receive data from all of the major vendors of vessel devices and providers of data, including shore based and satellite AIS. The system is preferably provided as a fully web based service, requiring no locally hosted infrastructure except Internet connected PC workstations, running standard browsers.  Installation and commissioning is provided remotely, as well as support and maintenance, 24/7/365 days of the Year.  Local support can be provided through partner companies, if required. Trackwell has been involved with Vessel Monitoring Systems since 1997.  Providing solutions in the field of monitoring and managing Extended Economy Zones (EEZ) is its primary focus.  Through the years, the company has served a number of countries and organizations around the World.

New Electronic Reporting System (ERS) added to Trackwell’s VMS

Trackwell recently launched a new version of its ERS module into the suite of fisheries management solutions, to handle catch and activity messages originated in the electronic logbook.  Unlike most other ERS systems available today, Trackwell’s ERS can be fully integrated into its Vessel Monitoring System, as an optional module. Trackwell ERS handles all types of reports from electronic logbooks (COE, CAT/DCA, COX, TRA, POR, DEP, CON, etc.) and supports the currently most or all communications methods in use. The ERS module is offered as an optional extension to the VMS or as a standalone system. The ERS shares all the infrastructure of the VMS platform, including vessel registry data, map interface, alert management, zone monitoring and more.   Benefits with integrated system By integrating the systems, the customer can save significant amount of money spent on separate computer infrastructure and the complexity of external connection between ERS and VMS.  The user can, in a simple way, compare ERS data with VMS data in order to find potential misreporting.  The user can view received ERS reports collocated with the VMS reports stream, comparing vessel location at the time of reporting with respect to EEZ maps and fishing zones. With a single mouse click, the user can see what amount of catch has been reported by each vessel in the current or previous fishing trips.  The system calculates the reported total catch on board at each time.  Built in reports allow various analyses of catch reporting, including total reported catch per zone, flag state, individual vessels over a selected time interval.  Automatic monitoring of quota status for individual flag states,...
