Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology is used worldwide for the identification and monitoring of maritime traffic.
Airborne AIS receivers provide reception ranges far exceeding those of terrestrial base stations; providing real-time, on-demand coverage of remote regions and specific locations of interest.
Airborne AIS receivers are a powerful tool for:
- Search and Rescue (SAR)
- Surveillance and Reconnaissance
- Threat Identification
- Law Enforcement
- Other time-sensitive vessel location and tracking applications
The SM161-MH series of high-sensitivity AIS receivers for avionics are built to MIL-Spec standards and deployed on a wide variety of fixed wing, rotary wing, manned, and unmanned aircraft.
The SA161-UA is a miniature AIS receiver for board-level integration in compact, light-weight, low-power applications such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
