Automatic Identification System (AIS) shore stations are hubs in which AIS data is received, for both real-time and analytic applications.
AIS is a globally-implemented component of port and waterway authorities, asset tracking services, Maritime Domain Awareness programs, homeland security measures, and Search and Rescue (SAR) operations. The prolific adoption of AIS provides readily-available infrastructure for data-driven analytic applications, such as efficiency planning and environmental impact modeling.
Real-time EEZ Monitoring
There are many site-specific factors that impact the reception range of an AIS Shore Station:
- Antenna Height
- Physical Obstruction
- VHF interference
- Co-Located Equipment
- and more
Shine Micro AIS receivers have demonstrated reception exceeding 200 NM from optimized base station locations utilizing exclusive high-sensitivity receiver technology and advanced signal processing capability. This reception range allows the persistent, real-time monitoring of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), without the delay and expense of a subscription service.
Shine Micro offers a line of AIS receiver models to meet or exceed the target reception range, connectivity, data volume, and data processing goals of clients; from individuals and contractors to port authorities and national governments.
Shine Micro also offers a line of AIS test equipment to aid in:
- site selection and optimization
- installation verification
- identification and mitigation of interference
