Development of the Coastal and Global Ships Traffic Monitoring Systems

  • Ryszard Wawruch
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 329)


Paper describes reasons of the introducing of different coastal and global maritime ships traffic monitoring systems. It presents operational possibilities and limitations of these systems and perspectives of their further development. Global systems are divided into Long Range Identification and Tracking System (LRIT) and satellite monitoring systems of the conventional and non-conventional vessels utilizing class A and B ship borne transponders of the Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) working in VHF band.
