AIS-MS03 is the latest addition to Honeywell’s range of high-performance multi-mode receiver products for the detection of marine traffic from space. It is a low-power AIS receiver optimized for the highest first pass detection rate.
This latest technology features a direct sampling receiver and is capable of performing simultaneous On-Board Processing (OBP) and raw spectrum capture for On-Ground Processing (OGP) while on-board memory allows storage of data from multiple orbits. This functionality is complemented by the ability to reprogram the equipment in-orbit with the aim of updating its algorithms and improving performance characteristics.
Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a terrestrial system designed to locate, identify and track maritime vessels. Digital information transmitted by ships via VHF automatically reports the vessels’ speed, direction, heading and a number of other vessel-specific parameters. By their nature, traditional shore or marine based AIS receivers have a very limited radio range. Satellite-based AIS receivers have the ability to overcome this limitation by covering a much wider area by receiving AIS signals from Low Earth Orbit.
The AIS-MS03 is a two channel, multiple mode S-AIS receiver with built-in memory banks able to store data accumulated across a single orbit (possible multiple orbits). It is designed with specific attention to power and size aiming to address the limited space and reduced battery capacity of small satellites.
