ReCAAP updates digital tools

The ReCAAP Information Sharing Centre (ISC) for piracy and armed robbery against ships in Asia has launched a new website and mobile app to assist its key stakeholders, such as maritime enforcement agencies, shipping companies, and the larger maritime community.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new website adds digital tools like an interactive map consolidating past incidents, as well as electronic reporting by ships to ReCAAP ISC.

The organisation’s mobile app has been renamed “ReCAPP”, and been redesigned to take advantage of technology improvements since the first version was launched in 2014. The app contains three primary modules – a Directory (of ReCAAP Focal Points/Contact Points), Publications, and Reporting.

The Reporting module can now also make use mobile devices’ GPS capabilities to more quickly share information with relevant parties based on location.

“The shipping industry like the rest of the world is entering an era of digitisation,” said Masafumi Kuroki, executive director of ReCAAP ISC.

“For example, many ships now provide internet access to the bridge and to the crew. The upgrade of our website and mobile app represents ReCAAP ISC’s commitment to use technology to improve access to our reports and knowledge base, to facilitate information sharing, and to enhance the user’s experience when utilising our digital tools.{/mprestriction}
