AIS or Automatic Identification System’s are evolving to be one of the most valuable pieces of electronic equipment onboard any size vessel today. The AIS is an automatic tracking system used on marine vessels that identifies and locates vessels by electronically exchanging data over VHF with other nearby ships and vessels. AIS information supplements marine radar, which continues to be the primary method of collision prevention for water transport.
Information provided by AIS includes GPS position, course, speed, vessel size and type, closest point of arrival to vessel and time to vessel. The data will also include the vessel’s name and if the vessel is underway or anchored.
