"People often do not realize the breadth and intensity of coastal security work," said Tomas Hjelmberg, head of Saab's Maritime Traffic Management unit. "It often involves tasks such as search and rescue, law enforcement and environmental protection. Situations can evolve rapidly and accurate decision support from CoastControl has the potential to save lives."

Saab said the system's fully integrated management tool features decision support functions, communications, full recording and replay capabilities and analysis. It also automatically creates incident reports.

The system is being displayed by Saab at the IDEX 2017 trade exhibition in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
