Global Satellite-Based Automatic Identification Systems Market (S-AIS) market to grow at a CAGR of 25.48% during the period 2016-2020

Press release   •   Jul 25, 2016 08:24 EDT


About the Satellite Based Automatic Identification Systems (S-AIS) Market

The S-AIS is a very high-frequency automatic vessel tracking system that provides location information to ships and shore stations through electronic exchange of data regarding position, identification, course, and speed. AIS enables two-way communication between coastal authorities and several vessels using satellite communication technology.

This vessel identification system is used to avoid collisions and for maritime domain awareness, search and rescue, environmental monitoring, and maritime intelligence applications. S-AIS is equipped to track the location of vessels in remote places such as open oceans, which is beyond the reach of terrestrial-based AIS monitoring systems.

Technavios analysts forecast the Global Satellite Based Automatic Identification Systems (S-AIS) market to grow at a CAGR of 25.48% during the period 2016-2020.
