Maritime Information Server

On-Demand Data Access

The Maritime Information Server, or MIS, offers on-demand data access; delivering detailed information to Radii operators and providing a web service interface for third-party applications.

Improving System Effectiveness

The MIS offers capabilities for both turnkey systems and large scale integrated systems, enabling data to flow among SSR’s products as well as to external systems, the latter with minimal integration.

Query Global Databases

As an information storage server, MIS is continually collecting data from the internal system and other available commercial and government data sources. Integrating this information with the real-time data provides enhanced situational awareness to the operator, allowing them to make more informed and knowledgeable decisions.

Web Service API for Easy Integration

The MIS allows third party access through a secure REST web service interface; offering developers an intuitive means to access data that was previously only available through the COMRIC API. This enables our partners to utilize the SSR information in new and innovative ways.
