AIS Recorder

This unique AIS recorder contains an embedded computer that reads all received AIS data and transfers it via TCP/IP network to a TCP client or server, as well as to the internal USB memory stick data storage. Therefore, in case of stand-alone usage or Internet connection failure, all AIS data can be made available for later manual retrieval.

Examples of application are:

  • Stand-alone AIS base stations at remote locations with poor or non-existing infrastructure
  • Economical alternative for sea areas where full-featured AIS base stations are not required
  • Supplement to existing AIS networks.

The recorder is designed for 24/7 operations. All AIS data strings received can be automatically time stamped. The time can be synchronized via NTP.

About AIS

AIS (Automatic Identification System) is an automatic tracking system used for collision avoidance of ships.  AIS information supplements marine radar, which continues to be the primary method of collision avoidance at sea. In addition to collision avoidance, AIS also forms the core element in vessel traffic services (VTS).

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) and International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) requires AIS transponders to be fitted on board all vessels with gross tonnage of 300 or more and all passenger ships regardless of size.
