In this case, we have developed a unique AI solution to support the identification of vessels representing a potential COVID-19 risk in addition to the security risk parameters. This capability can be readily adapted to all maritime nations as well as port locations around the world to help mitigate a range of maritime risks including the control of the spread of COVID-19."
