Reliance Yacht Management offers an extensive range and safety, navigation and communication equipment through their new marine store including the largest range of AIS devices.
Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a vessel tracking system capable of communicating navigation information automatically between AIS equipped vessels and coastal authorities. Vessels equipped with a receiver can also benefit by knowing the whereabouts and intentions of these ships. AIS provides a tool for improved safety and collision avoidance. Since 2004, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has instituted carriage requirements for vessels affecting both worldwide and local shipping traffic. These carriage requirements apply to commercial vessels subject to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention.
The devices are being supplied and installed to private pleasure craft by Owners that recognise the safety benefits. Mandatory regulation requires all vessels over 300 tonne on an international voyage and all domestic vessels over 500 tonne to have an AIS transponder installed. Passenger ships irrespective of size are also required to carry an AIS transponder.
