Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory NRL designed the Automatic Identification System AIS Collection and Reach-back System ACRBS to address a critical shortfall in the ability of the Military Sealift Command MSC to securely obtain and share its MSC ship position data along with the AIS data from all other surface contacts within AIS range VHF of the MSC ship. This document describes the NRLs design, assembly, and configuration of the ACRBS for the MSC. This document also provides technical information that is necessary to install ACRBS on a MSC host vessel.
