End-to-End Vessel Monitoring
OmniCom VMS provides fleets with end to end visibility from ship to shore. Configurable messaging includes position, course, and speed.

Ruggedised for Marine Environments
OmniCom VMS is designed for commercial fishermen operating in harsh environments. IP-67 beacon rating and integrated, sealed, and protected components ensure continuous operations during inclement weather.

Geofencing for Compliance
OmniCom VMS transmits notifications identifying vessels that approach, enter, leave, or remain within configurable geographical boundaries. This enables fleets and government agencies to enforce compliance for restricted areas.

Operational Efficiency
Reports are sent in real-time to improve fleet management. Upload latest firmware over-the-air anywhere in the world without taking vessels out of service. Digital I/O, USB, and NMEA 2000 ready ports collect mechanical readings which can be monitored onboard. Power consumption is low with 10-36V DC connectivity.

Integrated Safety & Security Features
SOS button is easily accessible to alert authorities in emergency situations.
