SKANTI Automatic Identification System


SKANTI introduces the UAIS 2000 in order to meet the market demand, which will be initiated by IMO regulations on the mandatory installation of AIS equipment. These regulations will come into force on July 1st 2002. The AIS system will increase the safety at sea due to the fact that vessels carrying AIS will be able to get an overview of other AIS-equipped vessels within VHF range as the transponders will communicate automatically and as the information can be displayed on different kinds of display systems, which may include sea maps.

SKANTI UAIS 2000 is an advanced integrated system with a D-GPS and a VHF data-link built into the transponder. This makes the system very reliable, as only few connections are required. Only a display system, a VHF antenna, a D-GPS antenna and power are needed to make the system operational. The information transmitted between the vessels will cover static information such as MMSI, call sign/name, type of ship, length/beam, antenna location, IMO number.Also details about the voyage and navigation will be part of the information which can be read on the display system. This will be helpful during navigation, especially in congested or narrow waters where e.g. the coastline may prevent the radar from detecting ‘hidden’ ships. Thus, the AIS transponder can help the navigational officer to ‘see round corners’ during navigation within VHF range.

During the next couple of years, all SOLAS vessels must install AIS equipment in order to fulfil the IMO resolution MSC.74(69) Annex 3, ITU.R.M.1371, IEC 61993-2 and IEC 61162-2. The first vessels (new buildings) on July 1st 2002.
