AIS Chronicle
Maritime Domain Awareness System
for Offshore Infrastructure Protection
AIS Chronicle is the reliable vessel movement monitoring and recording system for submarine cable protection.


AIS Chronicle is designed from the ground up for the submarine cable operator using years of experience protecting and maintaining large submarine cable networks. AIS has been a resource largely unexploited by the industry. Now, AIS Chronicle provides an easy and cost effective route to reduced fault rates, successful recovery of repair costs and enhanced route planning.

    About AIS

    The Automatic Identification System is a maritime navigation safety communications system standardised by the ITU and adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

    It automatically transmits a vessel’s identity, type, position, course, speed, and navigational status to other ships, SAR aircraft and shore stations.

    AIS has been mandatory for vessels of 300 GT and above and all passenger vessels since 2004.

    In 2007, the new Class B AIS standard was introduced enabling low-cost ship borne equipment triggering multiple additional national mandates and widespread adoption on smaller vessels.

    In 2010 most vessels operating on EU inland waterways were mandated to fit AIS and the entire EU fishing fleet over 15 meters must fit AIS by 2014.

    The range at which AIS can be consistently received is largely determined by the distance to the horizon which is determined by the height of the antennae, though contacts can be made at much greater distances due to atmospheric conditions.
