Published: June 2016
No. of Pages: 72

The S-AIS is a very high-frequency automatic vessel tracking system that provides location information to ships and shore stations through electronic exchange of data regarding position, identification, course, and speed. AIS enables two-way communication between coastal authorities and several vessels using satellite communication technology.

This vessel identification system is used to avoid collisions and for maritime domain awareness, search and rescue, environmental monitoring, and maritime intelligence applications. S-AIS is equipped to track the location of vessels in remote places such as open oceans, which is beyond the reach of terrestrial-based AIS monitoring systems.

The analysts forecast global satellite based automatic identification systems (S-AIS) market to grow at a CAGR of 25.48% during the period 2016-2020.
