AIS Chronicle
Maritime Domain Awareness System
for Offshore Infrastructure Protection

How it works

The unit receives AIS signals using a high gain directional antenna, selected to maximise coverage of submarine cable systems. The AIS Chronicle Windows® PC Application filters and sorts the data according to your requirements then exports for viewing and further analysis in Google Earth™ or other GIS, Excel® etc. An AIS Chronicle station unit installed at your cable station or other suitable location receives the AIS messages, applies a timestamp using the built-in GPS time source and stores the data in solid-state, non-volatile memory. The network connection is used only to download the data so short term network outages are not a problem. Rugged wall mounted steel enclosure and built-in uninterruptible power supply provide a reliable platform for long term AIS data gathering. Connect via the Internet or private network e.g. DCN, VPN etc. The AIS Chronicle Windows® PC Application is freely downloadable for installation on any PC. Connect to any number of your AIS Chronicle stations and retrieve the stored data on demand 24/7.
