The AMI Marine SMIDS is highly reliable. Also, it is a low-cost alternative to the doppler systems found on many vessels for docking and manoeuvring. ‘SMIDS’ uses the data received from GPS and GLONASS satellite technologies to accurately measure the vessel’s movement relative to ground.


Navigating or maneuvering in strong winds or currents, and in confined waters requires great skill. It places severe demands on masters and pilots. Reliable and accurate data on ship movement is essential to maximise safety. Also to reduce the risk of structural damage to the ship and shore infrastructure. Also to minimise the threat of accidental pollution.


Highly sensitive, and accurate to 0.01knots, SMIDS will detect and display vessel movement instantly. Often before it is visibly apparent. Therefore, ensuring vessel movement is precisely controlled and corrective action can be taken at the earliest opportunity. It is the perfect solution for large vessels. Especially those where bridge visibility is restricted, lightering, dredging, and for ships that frequently maneuver without tugs in adverse conditions.

The system is particularly valuable in difficult docking situations. Additionally, in poor weather conditions where the doppler system would struggle to hold it’s accuracy. Due to pitch and roll issues, sea state, cavitation, and seabed disturbance. These can cause doppler systems to report inaccurate readings.

SMIDS is the first fit system for many new vessel build projects. Consequently, it is installed in some of the most reputable shipyards around the world.
