The environment in which mariners operate is complex and challenging. It requires a 360-degree understanding of an environment that extends around, above and below the waterline.
Berth-to-berth navigation is becoming increasingly electronic, and with it the need to manage a wide range of data, information and intelligence from many different sources. Vessels must also operate in close co-operation with other craft, aircraft and land based assets. All of this must often take place in constantly changing, remote conditions, disconnected from high bandwidth networks.
In support of their operations, the Naval service must also manage ports, storage and maintenance facilities often similar in size and complexity to small towns.
Esri has been helping the maritime community meet these challenges for over 30 years. ArcGIS supports ASW planning and amphibious operations, and enables ISR missions. It supports C2 decision-making, not only at the Fleet Maritime Operations Center and the Task Force flagship, but also down to smaller deployed units, afloat and ashore.

ArcGIS for Maritime Operations
ArcGIS for Maritime Operations is an Esri initiative to help the maritime community implement the ArcGIS system in a military context. It includes a framework of maps, apps, and portals built around a common information model and designed to work together. You can use these as templates for your own maps and applications. Visit the Maritime Operations section with Esri’s Resource Centre.
You can also use the Defense and Intelligence Discussion forum to communicate with other users, and with Esri’s experts that support the Defence and National Security community.
