Saab Launches CoastControl, the Next Level of Coastal Security
Defence and security company Saab has launched CoastControl, a comprehensive solution to make the work of coast guards around the world more efficient and more effective. It combines a full suite of surveillance and communications products with a strong workflow management tool that helps coastal security personnel to stay ahead of any situation.
CoastControl integrates proven Saab solutions in a new way to bring a new level of control. This includes tools for structured incident management, decision support, management of personnel, smart deployment of critical assets such as aircraft and ships, and round the clock surveillance of the area of responsibility. It automates many user tasks, allowing personnel to focus on their jobs and get more done faster.
“People often do not realise the breadth and intensity of coastal security work,” says Tomas Hjelmberg, Head of Maritime Traffic Management. "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."
This level of integration in a coastal security solution has not been available to the market before.
It comes with decision support, integrated communications, full recording and replay capabilities and analysis tooling. The incident management workflow tool also automatically creates incident reports, largely reducing the time-consuming reporting activities and freeing up time for other tasks.
Saab is a well-established name in the maritime surveillance world, with at least a quarter of the world's shipping being tracked by Saab's solutions at any given moment.
