AIS Vessel Tracking coming to Port-Log
As part of our Automatic Identification System (AIS) development strategy, we have been trialling an AIS base station to test the reliability of the vessel track and other information collected. The receiver connects directly to a network and reliably supplies live AIS data via a built-in Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or User Datagram Protocol (UDP) server. Our cloud services store data locally, as well as distributing it to crowd-source initiatives, such as Marine Traffic and AIS Hub.
As a result of the initiative, we now plan to integrate operational AIS data into Port-Log’s Map Interface. The system is also being used as part of the development of our AIS Aids to Navigation (AToN) capability for Port-Log out-stations. Contact us if you are interested in integrating vessel tracking into an existing or new real-time monitoring system.
