AIS has landed! For our guide to AIS, click here. Nasa Marine's new AIS stand alone instrument shows AIS details on a mono screen. The display looks like a simple ARPA (Automatic Radar Plotting Aid) radar screen, showing targets ranges and bearings relative to your boat, with a vector line showing their course etc. Each Targets AIS details will also be available in a tabular form shown to the right of the screen itself. The Nasa Marine AIS radar is the first stand alone AIS receiver / plotter specifically designed for the leisure boat market, it receives transmissions from AIS transponders and displays them on a white backlit LCD screen. The display, with ranges of 1,2,4,8,16 and 32 nautical miles shows AIS carrying vessels in a format normally associated with conventional radar. A trail of previous positions clearly shows the relative track of all the targets on the screen. A box to the right of the screen displays the speed over the ground, the vessel name, mmsi number and the latitude and longitude of any target selected by the user. The unit consists of a dual frequency AIS receiver, demodulator, signal processor, and a backlit matrix display. It receives an NMEA input (RMC) from the boats GPS which puts your boat at the centre of a “radar-like” display. All other AIS carrying vessels are displayed with bearing and range relative to your boat. Any vessel on the screen can be hightlighted and its data will be displayed on the right of the screen. The data includes the ships name, mmsi number, position, speed, course and heading, distance off, plus latitude and longitude. Each vessel leaves a trail of previous positions so you immediately get a feeling for what’s going on. In the event that any vessel looks to be at risk of collision with you it can be selected and its data displayed. The MMSI number is immediately available so that in the last resort a DSC call can be made directly to the vessel. Features:
