VIIA runs on a server and administrated end users can simply use it online with any HTML5 compatible browser.
VIIA automatically warns end users on the basis of criteria (business rules) and fully customizable risk profiles.
Based on the triggered alerts, one can take proper actions, e.g. warn ships that are at risk.
VIIA supports information-driven situation awareness, and guides people with the tasks necessary for handling the situation.
VIIA uses a large number of different static information and real-time tracking sources.
It combines all this information in a smart way, such that designated users are alarmed automatically when certain situations occur.
One can think of vessels approaching forbidden areas or acting in a strange way.
