Abstract : The United States Coast Guard (USCG) Research and Development Center (RDC) in partnership with the Marine Exchange of Alaska (MXAK) have been exploring the feasibility of various means of transmitting electronic Maritime Safety Information (eMSI) to mariners in the Alaskan area. The communications path evaluated is the Very High Frequency (VHF)-based Automatic Identification System (AIS). For the Arctic Technology Evaluation 2015 (ATE-15), the RDC utilized the CG Cutter HEALY (polar ice breaker) to conduct testing of various AIS Transmit features to determine their utility for improving CG marine safety and security capabilities in the Arctic. During ATE-15 three different operations were tested using AIS Technology.
