Satellite AIS: Unmatched Global Coverage
AIS Ship Tracking for Improved Navigation and Maritime Safety
Satellite AIS (Automatic Identification System) is a vessel identification system that is used for collision avoidance, identification and location information. AIS ship tracking is also used for maritime domain awareness, search and rescue, environmental monitoring and maritime intelligence applications.
Satellite AIS (S-AIS) tracks the location of vessels in the most remote areas of the world, especially over open oceans and beyond the reach of terrestrial-based AIS monitoring systems.
Satellite AIS from the Leading Provider
ORBCOMM’s unique satellite AIS data service overcomes the limitations of terrestrial-based systems by cost-effectively tracking vessels well beyond coastal regions, often in near real-time. We were the first commercial satellite network with AIS data services and are now tracking over 150,000 vessels daily for over 100 customers in a variety of government and commercial organizations.
By partnering with some of the most trusted maritime information providers in the world, in addition to its own satellite monitoring capability, ORBCOMM offers the most complete situational picture of global vessel activity available today.
