The digitalization of the maritime industry is happening and VDES, the extension of AIS, will bring a wealth of opportunities for shipping companies to improve its operations through new digital services.
VDES can be seen as a maritime internet-of-things (IoT) technology which is both very cheap and extremely flexible. VDES adds real data channels to AIS and it combines coastal VHF radio and satellite connectivity into one global system working over the onboard VHF antenna. This means that providers of VDES-based services can push information to your ship anywhere in the world, even in the Arctics.
