Automatic Identification System AIS
Raymarine's AIS650 is a class B AIS transceiver allowing you to transmit your data to other AIS equipped vessels, and receive their data for viewing right on your Raymarine multifunction display's radar or chartplotter screen.
The benefits of AIS...
Operating in the VHF maritime band, the AIS Automatic Identification System system enables the wireless exchange of navigation status between vessels and shore-side traffic monitoring centers. Commercial ships, ocean-going vessels and recreational boats equipped with AIS transceivers broadcast AIS messages that include the vessel's name, course, speed and current navigation status.
Transmit your position. Fitting a Class A AIS device ensures you are seen by other AIS equipped vessels.
Vessel Protection. As part of a suitably configured network, AIS enables owners to be alerted to unauthorised vessel movements.
Port management. AIS can be used as a highly effective port management tool allowing easy identification, control and direction of vessels.
Coastal surveillance. AIS and radar can be fused to create effective and efficient coastal tracking, surveillance and safety systems.
Dual channel receivers - AIS vessel monitoring of class A and B transmissions.
Dedicated 50 channel RAIM compliant GPS receiver for superior accuracy.
Hardware and software selectable Silent Mode for privacy or security. Silent mode turns off your AIS transmitter while still enabling you to see transmissions from other vessels.

USB 2.0 port for plug-and-play connection to PC based navigation systems.
