BATH, England--SRT Marine Systems plc, the world leader in AIS technologies, products and systems announces the launch of SAT-Trak technology which significantly enhances the tracking of vessels with AIS transceivers by AIS satellite systems (S-AIS).
SAT-Trak is a next generation technology which resides solely in the AIS transceiver and enables satellites to receive a much higher percentage of their transmissions than normal. The technology is the second iteration of S-AIS enhancement technology and draws on SRT’s unique accumulated knowledge of radio communication core technology, AIS and the practical implementation of AIS based tracking systems for VTS, VMS and maritime safety and security.
SAT-Trak technology can be deployed on all AIS Transceiver types (Class A, Class B, Identifier, SART and AtoN) and configured and optimised for any AIS satellite system.
Simon Tucker, SRT CEO said: “Satellite AIS enables extended range tracking of vessels fitted with AIS transceivers, but they typically receive a very low percentage of the transmissions. For over 25 years SRT has been at the leading edge of advanced radio communications technology development and this experience and expertise is reflected in the superior field performance of our products. SAT-Trak technology is yet another innovation that will benefit our customers in applications such as fishing boat monitoring (VMS) providing significantly increased long range vessel tracking capability using AIS.”
