Enhanced maritime picture via Integrated Maritime Services

IMS banner

Getting a comprehensive overview of activities at sea is a challenge for most authorities working in the maritime domain. Coast guards and border guards, customs authorities, naval forces, pollution response centres, rescue coordination centres and vessel traffic management services all need detailed, reliable information about occurrences at sea in real time to be able to perform their duties effectively.

EMSA’s Integrated Maritime Services provides a comprehensive maritime picture, responding directly to the specific needs of a diverse and growing body of maritime users across Europe.
