Maritime Domain Awareness
Maritime Domain Awareness, or MDA, refers to the identification and monitoring of vessel traffic in and around United States territorial waters. Maritime Domain Awareness has become an increasingly high priority for National Security since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. MDA policy encourages vessel operators and coastline community residents to work together to report and respond to unusual or suspicious activity along US coastlines.
President George W. Bush put it simply when he stated that “The whole purpose is to push out our maritime borders, giving us more time to identify threats and more time to respond.”
Shine Micro specializes in Automatic Identification System, or AIS, technology. Our unique approach to AIS is a powerful aid to Maritime Domain Awareness, making the identification and tracking of marine traffic possible over the internet, in addition to stand-alone AIS receivers and transponders available for individual vessels.
The RadarPlus SM1610 Long Range Dual AIS Receiver was selected by the United States Coast Coast for the Nationwide Automatic Identification System (NAIS) in 2006.
