Operating in the VHF maritime band, the AIS (Automatic Identification System) system enables the wireless exchange of navigation status between vessels and shore-side traffic monitoring centers. Commercial ships, ocean-going vessels and recreational boats equipped with AIS transceivers broadcast AIS messages that include the vessel's name, course, speed and current navigation status.
Today there are 3 different kinds of AIS products in the marketplace known as Class A, Class B and Receive Only systems. Read our helpful guide to find out which is the right one for your boat.View Guide
