SF162SV-T3 – Low-Power, Dual AIS Receivers for Unmanned Surface Vehicles

The Shine Micro SF162SV-T3 is a low-power dual AIS receiver for solar powered applications; such as unmanned surface vehicles (USVs).

Shine Micro AIS receivers are internationally recognized for rugged construction, long-term reliability, and high-sensitivity AIS reception. In addition, the SF162SV-T3 features a compact form factor and low power consumption, making it ideal for deployment on self-contained platforms, USVs, and remote sites.

An Automatic Identification System, or AIS, reports identification information including Vessel Name, Size, Position, Course, Cargo, and more.  AIS Transponders are mandatory on all SOLAS vessels, and used voluntarily by many non-SOLAS vessels. The global adoption of AIS ensures that valuable details about vessel traffic are available for reception by the SF162SV-T3, and the versatility of USVs enable monitoring of remote locations like never before.  The AIS data can be used in a wide variety of applications from maritime domain awareness and asset tracking to efficiency modeling and environmental protection.

The Signal Analysis capabilities of the SF162SV-T3 allow users to monitor AIS traffic signal strength levels. Low ambient noise level is a critical parameter for maximum AIS monitoring site performance.  The ambient noise level output of the SF162SV-T3 can assist ongoing health monitoring of the installation.
