reliable small craft tracking for safety, security, and compliance
Hali Logo







Hali creates an environment of safety and security for small craft and the organisations responsible for them. Protection and accountability are no longer luxuries. Hali combines terrestrial AIS, satellite AIS, and satellite M2M technology all into one affordable and reliable solution.


Created for small craft fleet owners and operators, maritime authorities, and enforcement agencies, Hali delivers vessel locations through coastal and satellite AIS transmissions, which are augmented with ORBCOMM satellite M2M messaging, ensuring complete vessel visibility to maximise maritime safety, security, and environmental compliance.

How it works

Our powerful and tamper-proof hardware is attached to vessels of all sizes, tracking their position at all times, in all locations.

From these devices, as well as many others on our network, we collect acknowledged AIS and M2M satellite data, anywhere in the world.

The data is delivered on an easy to use, secure, web-based platform, with 24/7/365 support in 12 languages.

Class-B AIS is transmitted through the M2M satellite network for global broadcast on the ORBCOMM network

Class-B AIS is broadcast to nearby coastal base stations for traffic safety

Class-B AIS is broadcast to nearby vessels for collision avoidance
