AIS satellites

AIS is a system for the automatic exchange of navigational data between ships, coastal stations and satellites. Deployed on all commercial ships AIS enables to identify, localize and track ships in near real-time around the world. Thanks to a satellite constellation and a global network of ground stations operated by our partner, we receive about 19 million position reports from about 150.000 seagoing vessels every day, making global maritime transport truly visible.

Vessel Monitoring & Tracking

AIS data for ships tracking

AIS data provide up to date information about the whereabouts of a vessel. Ship owner, ship operators or port agents get to know up to date information allowing them to plan accordingly, monitor fleet activities and to organize loading and discharging operations.

Vessel Traffic Management

AIS data for ships tracking

AIS is one important source to generate a so called recognised maritime picture, answering questions such as: Who is out there? What is type of ship is trespassing? A tanker, a ship with dangerous goods on board, a passenger ship? Where does the ship come from (port arrival history)? Are the vessels respecting traffic rules? Is there any ship which could pose a security or safety thread? We enable our customers global awareness, anytime and anywhere.

Fishery monitoring

A ship

AIS data provide an up to date overview of global fishing vessel fleet, both, close to coast but also on high seas. Fishery control authorities responsible for fishery law enforcement need up-to-date information about: Who is currently fishing vessel in my waters? What type of fishing vessel is it? Does the fishing vessel have a valid permission to fish? How long is it operating in my waters? Does the vessel enter in any restricted zone, e.g. Maritime Protected Areas?

Safety and Security applications

Maritime domain awareness is key to defense, safety and security activities. Our AIS data is valuable input for maritime geo-intelligence services allowing e.g. national maritime or defense organization more effective mission planning and vessel behavior analysis.

Business Intelligence

AIS gives you information on vessel delays, traffic congestions, vessel routing behavior or real ETA. For long-term business intelligence analysis historical AIS is the key.

Search & Rescue

AIS data for ships tracking

AIS technology is a must for superior ways of detection. Search and rescue organizations can see at first glance the vessel in distress, but also vessels close to scene reducing response times.

Position validation- Why is position validation so important?

For a low number of messages the position data within the AIS message can, for various reasons, be distorted. To guarantee our customers the position information’s integrity, LuxSpace adds an integrity tag to the AIS message. To make this possible, our partner validates each satellite AIS position message with a patented process to identify the true position of a vessel. We enable our clients to evaluate our AIS service, because LuxSpace is not only dedicated to high-quality service but also to a very high customer satisfaction.
