Maritime Digitalisation

The maritime industry is embracing digitalisation at an ever increasing rate. New ways to use the masses of data generated by vessels, ports, installations and cargo are leading to developments at rapid pace. We have leading experience and capabilities in this area, as well as excellent links within the industry.

One of the areas where digitisation has had a profound effect on the maritime industry is incident investigation. Systems such as vessel’s “black box” Voyage Data Recorders (VDR), the ability to track positions worldwide by satellite using the Automatic Identification System (AIS), and the digitisation of navigation systems using Electronic Chart Display Information Systems (ECDIS) means that digital evidence has become critical following any maritime incident.

Waves Group provide sourcing, analysis, and user friendly presentation of this digital evidence. Utilising many leading software packages and direct links with data suppliers, we provide a complete service from our fast response CASPAR situational awareness reports, to full 3D simulation. This can be delivered as a standalone service, or as part of our wider consultancy and expert witness offering.

The diagram below gives an overview of Waves Group’s digital evidence process.
