The primary focus of Xerra is building Starboard, a maritime domain awareness platform that helps nations tackle complex challenges. 

By combining global automatic identification system (AIS) data, multiple layers of satellite data, scientific models, and other information or intelligence, Starboard enables teams to effectively analyse and investigate vessels and areas—all on a secure and intuitive platform.

Starboard helps governments and organisations tackle critical issues ranging from risk assessing arriving vessels for biosecurity threats and Covid-19 to detecting illegal fishing and uncovering non-reporting dark vessels.
