Maritime Information Management System (MIMS)

AIS provided by the San Francisco Marine Exchange

The Marine Exchange Automatic Identification System (AIS) enhances maritime domain awareness with a focus on improving security, navigational safety, search and rescue, and environmental protection services. AIS is technology sanctioned by the International Maritime Organization as a global standard for ship-to-ship, ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship communications. AIS uses digital VHF wave forms to continually transmit and receive voiceless data.
