AIS Base Stations

AIS Shore Stations are used for surveillance and management of vessel traffic along coastlines, on inland waterways and in ports.

The AIS Shore Station VDL 6000/FASS provides all the features required for surveillance and management of vessel traffic. It is easily configured to the specific needs of individual customers, from a basic unit to a fully redundant system with an embedded controller providing extensive processing and logging functionality.

Our base stations fulfil the requirements of international AIS standards. For customers requiring extreme availability, the advanced configuration offers a unique, cost- efficient dual-transponder solution for system redundancy. The VDL 6000/FASS is the perfect choice for the maritime authority implementing an AIS network and is also suitable for stand-alone operation at a VTS or port.

VDL 6000/FASS
The base station with basic configuration has one transponder and interfacing with a LAN, which provides AIS target information to a central VTS system. Broadcast and addressed text messaging, channel management and base station report functionality are included.

The VDL 6000/FASS can be factory configured as, AIS Base station, Limited AIS Base station, Repeater Base station and AtoN Base station.

VDL 6000/FASS Advanced
The Advanced configuration has one transponder and embedded controller hardware running unique software from CNS Systems. The shore station can be installed as a single unit providing AIS message logging, remote configuration and software update, virtual and synthetic targets, SNMP, local target filtering, remote power on/off and more. Two shore stations can be locally connected to form a fully redundant installation, where hot-standby operation including cross-wise redundancy transponder/controller between the units provides very high availability.
