Shine Micro, Inc. is pleased to have presented and exhibited at this year's RTCM
Annual Assembly Meeting and Conference, marking the 7th consecutive year of Shine
Micro's participation at RTCM. Shine Micro President, Mark Johnson, and Liquid
Robotics Vice President of Customer Support, Kurt Kiesow, presented a joint
presentation on Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology used onboard
Liquid Robotics' Wave Glider.
Held at the Catamaran Resort and Spa, the suite hosted by Shine Micro focused on
strategic partnerships and innovative AIS technology that were developed within
the last year.
Innovative AIS technology included:
- High altitude/low temperature SA161-MH AIS receiver for avionics
- SF162AtoN-T1 Type 1 AIS Aid to Navigation (AtoN)
- In-line, weatherized Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) for the SM1610-2 AIS receiver.
Please contact Shine Micro for more details about these products.
The weatherized capabilities of the LNA were demonstrated by submerging it
in a fish tank filled with gold fish. It was connected to an SM1610-2 AIS
receiver and a VHF antenna. Live vessels picked up by the system in the San
Diego bay area were displayed via Coastal Explorer 2009 and Shine Micro's
proprietary Enhanced Signal Processing (ESP) software on an LCD television.
The LNA was on display and submerged for three (3) days straight and provided
continuous AIS reception.
Other features of the Shine Micro exhibit included strategic partnerships
and AIS technology that have helped Shine Micro become an industry leader
in AIS. These included Insitu, Inc.'s ScanEagle and the SA161-UA compact
AIS receiver for avionics, and the U.S. Coast Guard's Nationwide Automatic
Identification System (NAIS) Increment 1 and the SM1610 Long Range AIS receiver.
