MarINE insurance

Analytics and vessel RISK prediction,

and maritime surveillance

SiriusInsight.AI is a dual purpose company focussed on the maritime sector.


Informed by deep domain knowledge, our revolutionary AI-driven data analytics platform and predictive algorithms provide marine insurers with a cutting edge risk prediction tool; enabling insurers, owners and operators to better understand and price vessel risk.

Our pioneering Maritime Surveillance Sensor Suites deliver a complete, persistent picture of maritime activity

in and beyond our territorial waters, enabling maritime situational awareness for government and other agencies. 

Our DaTA applied to marine insurance

We have collated a huge volume of shipping data over 4 years, we track 230,000 vessels daily and gather information on 50 behavioural categories; this allow us to apply unparalleled rigour and depth to our analysis.

This voluminous database feeds our AI tool to predict, with >80% accuracy, whether a vessel will make a claim in the next 12 months.

In addition to our vessel risk prediction tool, we can provide bespoke reports on behaviour, for example in relation to a vessels proximity to sanctioned areas and vessels, or to determine a pattern of activity.


Our data dashboards show a plethora of behavioural information for vessels and fleets, providing an intuitive feel for the manner in which a vessel is operated.

This persistent real time picture can be adapted and utilised to monitor any open, coastal or inland waterway, or port.

It delivers enhanced maritime safety and security, and territorial, coastal and border integrity.
