The DIAMONIS system of Rijkswaterstaat in the Netherlands is an AIS system to automatically identify ships, both inland and on the North Sea. These vessels send their signals through a transponder with VHF link, which is received by base stations across the country.
Upgrading the entire production environment
All of this information is centralized in two data centres for further processing. The two data centres hold the details of all ships present inland and on the North Sea at any given time.
With the comprehensive upgrade of the production environment, the AIS system was due for renewal too. The current production environment will now be set up as an acceptance system, while a third system will be used for testing in the future.
Less downtime, more reliability
Tein Technology completed the entire project, including a full renewal of all software and hardware and the migration of the current base stations and DIS services into the new production environment, thus improving the system’s availability and reliability.
This will ensure greater uptime for the systems of the coast guard and Rijkswaterstaat projects.
In partnership with SAAB
The Tein Technology teams started the project in February, and will be completing it in September 2019. Together with their partners at SAAB, who will provide all base station hardware and central software, they will carry out the full DIAMONIS system renewal.
