This is Vessel Insight

Vessel Insight enables customers to unlock the value of their data in a simple and cost effective way - giving them a competitive edge in our fast-paced digital world. 

There are great gains to be made through digitalization in the maritime industry, especially in terms of increased efficiency, safety and the need to meet enhanced environmental standards. ​ 

However, digitalization requires access to quality data from the vessels. Not only does each ship represent a unique configuration, but aspects such as poor or no connectivity and various vendor systems onboard renders standardization near impossible. Historically, the complexity of digital enablement has been associated with high costs nulling out the sizable OPEX reductions digitalization enables.  

Until now. KONGSBERG’s long history as a system integrator, and a leading provider of various automation systems, information management systems and as a system integrator gives us a unique insight in what is required. We have created a data infrastructure and subscription-based service that gives maritime operators a low-threshold, viable way to start their digitalization journey. 

We call this Vessel Insight

Vessel Insight provides vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure capturing and aggregating quality data in a cost effective and secure way.

The solution is delivered as a service, eliminating the need for large up-front investments and costly upgrades. Vessel Insight provides instant and easy access to fleet overview, vessel specific dashboards, data analysis tools as well as a powerful api.

In addition, through Kognifai Maritime Marketplace, customers have access to a large range of applications and services that can turn their data into business value.

Getting to know Vessel Insight

  • 1. Data sourcing

    Vessel Insight captures data onboard directly from the automation system, where a large amount of signals naturally come together. Additional sources, such as VDRs or special sensors, can be integrated on demand using standard connectors like e.g. MODBUS TCP/Serial, MQTT and NMEA.

  • 2. Data capturing & processing

    The Vessel Insight Edge captures the data onboard. This small computer stores data in case of temporary connectivity losses, but also pre-processed data in order to reduce bandwidth demand. The Vessel Insight Edge can be also used to run 3rd party applications locally onboard.

  • 3. Data transmission

    Once the ship is connected to the internet, the data is sent to the Kognifai cloud via the KONGSBERG Secure Network – a specialized VPN solution that ensures your data stays protected all the time.

  • 4. The cloud

    In the Kognifai cloud the data is stored and made available for use. Via our APIs the data can be easily shared with any internal stakeholders, 3rd party platforms or applications - of course only in consent with the ship owner or operator.

  • 5. maritime Marketplace

    On the Kognifai Maritime Marketplace powerful applications turn the data into value. Here ship owners and operators can choose from a large variety of solutions that are fully integrated with Vessel Insight.
