Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology is used worldwide for the identification and monitoring of maritime traffic.  

Long-Range, On-Demand

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 SA161-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).
