VTS confirmed for Saudi
Kongsberg Norcontrol IT and its partner, National Advanced Systems Company (NASCO), have won a contract to supply Vessel Traffic Service (VTS), AIS Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) and high performance radar systems for eight ports in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Steve Guest, Regional Sales Director, Kongsberg Norcontrol IT, notes: "Each of these ports has its own unique maritime domain awareness requirements.
For example, radar propagation in the Red Sea is completely different to that in the Arabian Gulf and our radar solutions need to have the correct processing to optimise radar detection in each of these areas."
System installation will take place in 2006 and operation towards the end of the year.
