C-Scope System Architecture

C-Scope is Kongsberg Norcontrol's 7th generation maritime and situational awareness solution in service with port, coastal, and vessel traffic service (VTS) authorities throughout the world.

The C-Scope solution has a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with an advanced user interface based on a Geographical Information System. C-Scope provides real time information about the traffic situation in the maritime domain in 2D and 3D for improved situational awareness of the present and future.

C-Scope imports maps, charts and imagery in various formats, fuses data from networked sensors and retrieves data from centralized databases to aid decision making. At the core of C-Scope is our internationally renowned radar video extraction service providing high quality radar video for optimum detection and visualization. The radar tracking service includes distributed remote trackers and/or a centralized tracking and sensor data fusion service.

C-Scope integrates data from sensors such as radar, AIS, electro optics, environmental, satellite and sub-sea either directly or through C-Scope’s Web Map Service.  C-Scope’s SOA makes it easily customized to meet the individual specific needs for Ports, Coastal, Exclusive Economic Zone, Offshore and River and Inland waterways.
