AIS (Automatic Identification Systems)

AIS is a maritime information system developed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). This sophisticated radio technology enables the exchange of information between different marine entities. Information provided by AIS equipment, such as unique identification, position, course, and speed, can be displayed on a screen and is intended to assist a vessel’s watch standing officers and allow maritime authorities to track and monitor vessel movements.
