IORIS: The Maritime Operational Coordination & Communications Platform for the Indo-Pacific

The Indo Pacific Regional Information Sharing (IORIS) platform is a secure and neutral, web-based, maritime coordination and information-sharing tool for national and regional multi-agency use. In its primary function, IORIS provides maritime centres with a means to jointly plan and coordinate maritime operations, including crisis/incident management, offering enhanced information-sharing functions and strengthening inter-agency collaboration at national and regional levels. The platform also offers additional surveillance functionalities.

IORIS functions are flexible and can be adapted to the mandate and role of a specific centre or organisation, from communications, to geographic displays and the provision of satellite AIS data. Dedicated areas are tailor-made to manage day-to-day information-sharing and the coordination and monitoring of maritime safety and security operations, amongst civilian agencies and/or military users, depending on the needs.

IORIS incorporates the latest encrypted technologies for ensuring a robust level of security and privacy; it is only accessible to authorised users / centres / administrations designated by partner countries, maritime centres and regional organisations.

A training programme, delivered by a pool of certified instructors, ensures the smooth deployment and functioning of each individual platform.

At present 90 national and regional maritime agencies from over 55 countries and organisations across the Indo-Pacific use the IORIS platform.
