AIS Vessel Monitoring

The Arctic and Antarctic sea areas cover vast regions of the Earth’s surface and are becoming ever more important as the ice cover reduces making these areas more accessible to fishing, tourism, mineral exploitation and in the case of the Arctic, a viable shipping route. The region is not only covered with ice, but also is liable to poor visibility for vessel traffic. As such it is one of the most hostile maritime environments on our planet.

In this Use Case:
  • How S-AIS extends coverage into remote waters to receive AIS outside coverage of Coastal AIS
  • How S-AIS provides monitoring and identification of ships through the region
  • How S-AIS allows tracking of ships in Arctic waters to validate compliance of coastal state authorities
