Over the past 15 years, our C-Hawk web-based software has been deployed within customs in 35 countries worldwide. It is a well-proven system with exceptional results in its current deployment.
Our software and analytics are packaged into modules deployed as standalone systems or integrated into a national information sharing and intelligence platform.
The analytics work primarily against a country’s own national cargo data to provide real-time risk assessment and targeting.
In addition, analysts can access our in-house database of sea cargo container movements. This database is perhaps the largest globally, with over 500 million records, and is updated daily. This gives analysts the ability to establish normalcy, for historical trading relationships, commodities and routings, which then makes it easier for them to uncover anomalies for cargo approaching their shores.
Analysts can easily create their own risk profiles to automatically run against all available data. Results from scans and physical inspections, especially in the case of false positives, can be fed back to the analyst for updating of profiles.
We have 15 years of experience and proven technical capacity to upload and ingest any and all cargo data types and formats.
The analytics that help assess risk on cargo need timely data from all available sources, including shipping line data (such as from Maersk, COSCO, and Evergreen) and declaration data from customs back-office systems (such as ASYCUDA, TRIPS, CASE or SIGA). Typically this data needs to be refreshed at least once per day.
Any additional national data sources available to assist in analysis and investigations can be integrated into the analytics using federated query technology. This eliminates the need to ingest these secondary and tertiary sources into a central database, thereby reducing cost and complexity.
Vessel Risk Assessment
For over 12 years, our small vessel tracking and risk assessment software system has been operational within customs in 20 countries, and more recently, within immigration and port authorities.
Based on this underlying technology, our next generation platform can now accommodate larger commercial vessels, as well as yachts and smaller craft, and includes crew and passengers. Coupled with cargo risk assessment, the vessel risk assessment module gives border agencies at sea ports a more complete overview of traffic – and risk – in the maritime domain.
