AIS950 Class A Transceiver is approved to deep sea and inland waterway standards and offers a highly intuitive user interface.
Operating in the VHF maritime band, the AIS (Automatic Identification System) system enables the wireless exchange of navigation status between vessels and shore-side traffic monitoring centers. Commercial ships, ocean-going vessels and recreational boats equipped with AIS transceivers broadcast AIS messages that include the vessel's name, course, speed and current navigation status.
Transmit your position: Fitting a Class A AIS device ensures you are seen by other AIS equipped vessels.
Vessel Protection: As part of a suitably configured network, AIS enables owners to be alerted to unauthorised vessel movements.
Port management: AIS can be used as a highly effective port management tool allowing easy identification, control and direction of vessels.
Coastal surveillance: AIS and radar can be fused to create effective and efficient coastal tracking, surveillance and safety systems.
