Identification System (AIS) is a system used by ships and Vessel Traffic
Services (VTS) principally for identification and locating vessels. AIS provides
a means for ships to electronically exchange ship data including:
identification, position, course, and speed, with other nearby ships and VTS
stations. This information can be displayed on a screen or an ECDIS display. AIS
is intended to assist the vessel's watch standing officers and allow maritime
authorities to track and monitor vessel movements. It works by integrating a
standardized VHF transceiver system with an electronic navigation system, such
as a LORAN-C (LOng RAnge Navigation Version C) or Global Positioning System
receiver, and other navigational sensors on board ship (gyrocompass, rate of
turn indicator, etc.).
