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.
