Sierra Leone safeguards shipping with new AI-powered platform

Sierra Leone AI vessel screening

The Sierra Leone Maritime Administration (SLMARAD) has partnered with Windward to integrate its AI-powered platform for existing and incoming vessel screening to detect illicit behaviour.

The new platform aims to maintain a high quality of registrants across administration and ensure the safety and protection of the marine environment.

According to SLMARAD, the AI-powered platform will optimise the registration process with enhanced due-diligence procedures, ensuring that incoming vessels are safe to conduct business with.

The platform will also be used to streamline the yearly re-application process for existing vessels and ensure that vessels currently sailing under the Sierra Leone flag do not conduct any deceptive shipping practices.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Windward, the leading Maritime AI solution in the industry,” said Marianna Fournari, General Manager of SLMARAD.

“Prior to using Windward’s platform we could only monitor vessels with AIS data. The platform allows us not only to investigate the vessels in our registry with ease but gives us an extra layer of insights into vessel behaviour that only advanced AI and over a decade of maritime expertise can provide.”

Windward’s Maritime AI solution is powered by machine learning and behavioural analytics models to optimise business practices and efficiently navigate all aspects of maritime risk in real-time.

The U.S. Department of Defense recently adopted a new AI solution to optimise and manage Vision AI to make its ports more secure.
