IMSA and Bluewater Partner to Launch ARMS Software



 IMSA teams up with industry leader Bluewater Superyacht Bridge Services to Provide Ground Breaking Software Platform to the Large Yacht Industry. (

 Fort Lauderdale, Florida | Risks and threats facing the maritime industry continue to evolve around the world.  Many large yacht crews, management companies, and owners are overwhelmed by the amount of data and information and struggle to make that data useful.  They face the daunting task of determining what is relevant to their operations.  The ARMS (Automated Risk Management Solution) software platform provides vessels with real-time, location specific risk and threat information along with other important data through an easy to use dashboard.

“The ARMS platform is revolutionary and ground breaking because it aggregates thousands of data sources into a useable and relevant form for vessels at sea.” Comments Corey Ranslem, CEO of IMSA. “This software platform is going to change how the industry receives, processes, and better responds to risks to vessels.  Now vessel crews will be better prepared to make decisions to keep their passengers, crews and vessels safe anywhere in the world.”

IMSA has partnered with large yacht industry leader, Bluewater Superyacht Bridge Services ( as the primary distributor of the ARMS platform in the large yacht industry.  Bluewater provides several services in managing charts, publications, compliance and trip planning for large yachts.

“We’re excited about our partnership with IMSA as their ARMS software platform dovetails with our strategy to help large yachts evolve smart bridges which enhances safe navigation” explains John Mann President of Bluewater.

IMSA and Bluewater are both sponsors of the exclusive crew “Oasis” at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this year.  The companies will be hosting clients, meetings, and demonstrations of the ARMS platform.

“We are excited about the launch of the platform at FLIBS this year and our partnership with Bluewater.” Remarks Ranslem.  “They have exceptional expertise in the large yacht market and a solid understanding of technology and its application to bridge and vessel operations.”
