Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automated tracking system that displays other vessels in the vicinity. It is a broadcast transponder system which operates in the VHF mobile maritime band. Your own ship also shows on the screens of other vessels in the vicinity, provided your vessel is fitted with AIS.
AIS has become an important safety item to help skippers everywhere navigate at night and under any condition by providing the correct positioning and directions of all vessels within range while at the same time alerting all vessels in the area of your vessel’s position.
Without a doubt, the invention of AIS has been a game changer in the cruising community both for coastal cruisers and ocean navigators alike.
