    DIMENTIONS

    AIS - for safety and efficiency

    CNS Systems provides the international maritime community withshipborne and shore-based automatic identification system solutions (AIS),compliant with and certified to meet international standards.

    Airborne AIS transponders greatly enhances surveillance of large areas. The localisation and identification of all AIS equipped vessels greatly increases national security, environmental protection, and the possibility of rescuing vessels in distress. AIS-equipped aircraft, with their high speed and extreme VHF coverage, are well suited to be used in SAR operations.

    The SOTDMA technology used in the AIS transponder broadcasts and receives information about all AIS equipped vessels within VHF coverage. This information includes position, identity, course and speed over ground, heading and rate of turn as well as navigational status and the destination of the ship. The information received is easily plotted on an electronic chart display system. This gives a surveillance capability that was not possible prior to AIS. AIS information on draught, type of cargo and destination is also useful in rescue operations. The airborne AIS transponder is the result of our extensive experience of avionics, and is designed and produced to the same high demands as our VDL4000 avionic transponders.

    We provide safety and efficiency at reduced operational costs.

    For the crew of a ship at sea, the advantages of a reliable SOLAScompliant AIS system are essential. Robust and flexible base stations andnetwork software solutions are critical components in systems for safetyand efficiency in coastal and inland waters, and harbours. Withinnovative technology and expertise in our customers’ areas of operation,CNS provides solutions for increased safety and efficiency wherever theneed exists.

    Shipborne AIS

    Our shipborne AIS Class A systems, based on state of the art technology, gives SOLAS compliance at a very attractive price. Installed on a large number of vessels worldwide, they not only ensure reliable operations, but also provide the users with the features necessary to utilise the full advantages of the AIS technology.

    Airborne AIS

    The AIS airborne transponders developed from our avionic product line are well suited to be used in SAR operations.

    AIS shore based systems

    AIS shore-based systems consisting of AIS base stations and network software solutions are the perfect choice for the maritime authority building up an AIS network and for standalone operation in a VTS or port management system

    Our AIS base stations

    Fulfil all the requirements of relevant international AIS standards and are flexible systems that are easily configured to meet different customer requirements. Regardless of configuration – basic or dual transponder solutions for extended availability – they offer superior performance and quality at very attractive prices.

    Powerful network software solutions

    Make it easy to integrate a few base stations as well as a distributed larger network to a port management system or a central VTS system. The Sub-network Controller gives powerful support for handling all AIS target information received. It also filters the information and logs it in the database. The Network Manager includes support for remote monitoring, maintenance and upgrades of base station chains to ensure high availability while keeping operational costs at a minimum.

    Application development

    CNS Systems combines unique competence in radio technology, software development and system integration with experience from communication, navigation and surveillance applications for shipping and aviation. This is the platform for successful application developments in close cooperation with.

    AIS - Shipborne

    The VDL6000 Class A system provides SOLAS compliance and BSH-certification at very attractive prices.

    The data link communication covering identity, position, destination and other required static, voyage-related and dynamic data gives all vessels in an area increased situational awareness and improves safety at sea for the individual ship. Positive identification and positioning of all ships in the vicinity reduce the unnecessary “ship on my port bow” calls. Less information overload greatly enhances safety at sea.

    The SOTDMA technology used in the AIS transponder transmits and receives information on all vessels within VHF coverage. This information includes position, identity, course over ground, heading, and rate of turn as well as navigational status and the destination of the ship. The information received from, and provided to, the ships is easily plotted on any ARPA radar or electronic chart system. This gives the Officer of the Watch a situational awareness that could never be achieved prior to AIS. Information on draught, type of cargo and destination could also be used to make decisions related to manoeuvring. The screen presentation of the call signs of other ships enables a ship to make direct contact with conflicting vessels by text messaging or voice communication. Maximum awareness is always accomplished.

    Configuration and interface

    Easy to install in any ship, the VDL6000 Class A system is connected to a GPS antenna, a VHF antenna and power supply. The mandatory installation is complete after connecting it to the navigation GPS, gyro and installing the Pilot Plug interface. To maximise the benefit of the investment, the VDL6000 Class A is delivered with an interface to the chart system and/or ARPA radar. Moreover, the system is designed to support long-range reporting via satellite.

    The shipborne Class A system consists of Transponder, Minimum Keyboard & Display (MKD), and Connection Unit.

    AIS - Shipborne-FAQ

    What shall I do when I cannot connect my external GPS and/or Gyro?

    To verify that the connection between the AIS equipment and the external GPS and/or Gyro is correct follow the following steps:   

    1.RS232/RS485

    The sensor ports (SENS1, SENS2 and SENS3) on the connection unit are RS485 ports, which can be directly connected to equipment having either RS422 or RS485 output ports.

    Start with verifying that external equipment (e.g. GPS or Gyro) is using a RS422 or RS485 interface.

    If the external equipment is using RS232 the general recommendation is to use a converter from RS232 to RS422/RS485. C.N.S System have tested the equipment with the following converter:

    Model: 4WSD9R, RS-232 to RS-422/485 Converter

    Manufacturer: B&B electronics, www.bb-elec.com

    The converter has been successfully tested with both RS485 4-Wire Full-Duplex and RS422 4-Wire Full-Duplex mode.

    The connection table showing connection of the converter to the connection unit:

    Converter Pin # Converter Signal Connection unit signal
    2 RD(A)- Tx A
    3 TD(B)+ Rx B
    7 RD(B)+ Tx B
    8 TD(A)- Rx A

    It can also be possible to connect the RS232 directly to the RS485. This is not recommended and not guaranteed to function properly. If connecting RS232 directly to the connection unit the signal levels shall not exceed +/-7V. The RS232 should be connected to A and GND on the connection unit.

    It is essential to check the signal level of the RS232 interface before trying to connect it to the VDL 6000, since higher signal levels can destroy the serial receiver interface permanently. HW faults due to direct connection of RS232 equipment is NOT covered by C.N.S. Systems warranty.

    Note: All three sensor ports are functionally equivalent so it is possible to test different ports for the external equipment as troubleshooting.

    2.Baud rate

     When you have verified that the GPS/Gyro is connected properly continue with to verifying that the external equipment and the VDL6000 are configured with the same baud rate (normally 4800 bps) and other port settings. How to configure the Baud rate is explained in the VDL 6000 Manual, Part II –User’s Guide, chapter 5.5.8 Port settings . Please note that the system needs to be rebooted after changing the port settings.

    3. Local date

    Verify that the external sensor is configured to send a DTM sentence defining the local datum to WGS84. If this sentence is not received, all received position data will be neglected.

    4. Electrical continuity test - Connector J2

    Verify that there is an electrical connection between the screw terminals of the sensor ports in the Connection Unit and the cable connector P2 to be connected to the VDL 6000 transponder. To make sure that everything is connected properly a standard multi meter can be used to make a connection check between the following pins:

    SENS1:A => P2:7 SENS1:B =>   P2:37  SENS1:GND =>  P2:22 SENS2:A => P2:24 SENS2:B => P2:8  SENS2:GND => P2:38 SENS3:A => P2:40  SENS3:B => P2:25 SENS3:GND => P2:9

    5. Gyro interface

    using a gyro converter from qwerty-electronics (S2N 9028C), provided as option by C.N.S. Systems, it is possible to configure it to play a pre-programmed sequence of turns. This can be useful for troubleshooting. Please refer to the gyro interface manual for details of how to configure it to play this pre-programmed sequence.

    6. What is the normal behaviour of Transponder LEDs?

    The transponder has six (6) LEDs (Power, Alarm, Tx, Rx1, Rx2, Rx3) on the front side of the transponder. When powering up a VDL6000 Class A system without any external sensors (e.g. GPS and Gyro) (see note) connected the normal behaviour of the LEDs are:

    The green power LED will flash a couple of times and then light continuously. After approximately 2 minutes the alarm LED will light up if there is no external sensors connected.If the LEDs do not behave like this please contact the technical support.

    Note: In early SW versions (up to SW-6000-10-1.5.1) there was a bug related to the alarm regarding a lack of Heading information (normally coming from the gyro). If this information was missing at power on of the transponder, no alarm was generated. The alarm only came if Heading information had once been received, and suddenly disappeared.This was corrected from SW release SW-6000-10-1.6.

    AIS - Airborne

    Search and Rescue (SAR) AIS transponders for aircraft installation.

    Airborne AIS transponders greatly enhances surveillance of large areas. The localisation and identification of all AIS equipped vessels greatly increases national security, environmental protection, and the possibility of rescuing vessels in distress. AIS-equipped aircraft, with their high speed and extreme VHF coverage, are well suited to be used in SAR operations.

    The SOTDMA technology used in the AIS transponder broadcasts and receives information about all AIS equipped vessels within VHF coverage. This information includes position, identity, course and speed over ground, heading and rate of turn as well as navigational status and the destination of the ship. The information received is easily plotted on an electronic chart display system. This gives a surveillance capability that was not possible prior to AIS. AIS information on draught, type of cargo and destination is also useful in rescue operations. The airborne AIS transponder is the result of our extensive experience of avionics, and is designed and produced to the same high demands as our VDL4000 avionic transponders.

    Configuration and interface

    The airborne AIS transponder, with its internal GPS, connects to power supply, VHF and GPS antennas and to a laptop with our confi guration software. The same laptop or a CDTI can also be running an electronic chart system to display targets received by the airborne AIS transponde

    AIS - Jotron Products

    The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has introduced new requirements for safety equipment on board. According to Resolution MSC.74 (69), Annex 3, all SOLAS vessels had to have installed AIS (Automatic Identification System) transponders in the period from 2002 and 2004 according to the pre-defined deadlines for different categories of ships.

    The AIS system allows all AIS equipped vessels to automatically exchange data regarding navigation and vessel specific information among the vessels themselves or to shore-base AIS installations. The AIS data is shown on suitable displays on board the ship, and will help foresee dangerous situations and facilitate communications between the vessels involved, thus increasing safety at sea.

    As the AIS transponder is communicating on a VHF data-link, the AIS is able to track vessels that might be out of sight, even for the radar, and to “see around corners” and obstacles, so that mariners will be able to prepare the navigation changes before visual contact is made.

    AIS - RA 2500

    A stand alone receiver for AIS

    RA-2500 is a dual channel VHF receiver. It will continuously monitor ship information from all AIS-equipped ships within VHF range.

    AIS - Jotron TR 2500

    Tron UAIS TR-2500 is a VHF transponder system continuously exchanging own ship information with information from all UAIS-equipped ships within VHF range. Broadcasting identification, position, course and speed over ground as well as static and voyage related information to vessels and shore base stations.
    Easy to operate
    Compact size, quick installation
    World wide service net

    AIS - Jotron TR 2600

    Tron AIS, TR-2600 is a Shore Station Transponder designed to meet or exceed current specifications from IMO, IEC and IALA.

    The TR-2600 with its dedicated Base Station Controller (BSC) can operate as a stand-alone unit, or together with a standby unit in a hot standby configuration.

    If configured, the standby unit will automatically continue operation if the main unit fails, or is disabled for maintenance purposes.

    TR-2600 can easy be interfaced to customised costal surveillance systems, combining radar and AIS surveillance.
    All configurations can be done via the 10Base-T Ethernet interface or via a RS-422/232 serial line.

    All data received and transmitted is output to a configurable unicast IP address and/or as a broadcast message, in this way the data can be used locally on a LAN or filtered to be available on a wider network.

The easyTRX also transmits your yacht´s own dynamic & static ship data, so you can be seen by other AIS equipped vessels.

    What else do I need to use easyTRX?
    You need a dedicated GPS antenna which we can supply and either a VHF antenna or our special splitter - easySPLIT OCB - The easySPLIT OCB enables you to use your existing aerial.

    What fits to the easyTRX?:
    If you wish to program your ship static data (Name, length etc. etc.) or display received data on a P.C., your PC must be at least equipped with Windows XP with SP2 and a display resolution of 1024 x 768.
    Before transmitting you need your own ship´s MMSI number, but you can receive AIS data until this programmed in. Your dealer can supply you with a fully programmed easyTRX, ready to switch on.

    MANDO-301/303 - Overview

    Enpowering AtoN by AIS Technology

    AIS Aids to Navigation (AtoN) is the latest application of AIS technology. The AIS AtoN transponder can be installed in lighthouses, lanterns, buoys, other fixed and floating Aids to Navigation, or offshore platforms to achieve greater functionality by monitoring and broadcasting their status and other information. There are three types of AIS AtoN:

    ● Type 1 - no receiver (transmitter only) using FATDMA.
    ● Type 2 - transmitter and one receiver using FATDMA.
    ● Type 3 - transmitter and two receivers using FATDMA/RATDMA.

    MANDO can be configured the transmitting schedule by our configuration utility to broadcast AtoN messages through FATDMA or RATDMA. MANDO is designed to broadcast the following messages:

    ● Message 21: Aids to Navigation Report
    ● Message 6: Monitoring of AtoN lantern, equipment, etc.
    ● Message 8: Meteorology/hydrology data
    ● Message 12: Addressed Safety Related Message (SRM)
    ● Message 14: Broadcast Safety Related Message (SRM)
    ● Message7: Binary acknowledge message (Type 3 only)
    ● Message13: Safety related acknowledge Message

    AMEC’s MANDO-301 (Type 1) and MANDO-303 (Type 3) AIS AtoN transceivers are 100% IALA and IEC compliant devices. We could provide user’s choices from basic PCB modules to solid aluminum enclosed unit. The compact PCB module (105mm × 102mm) is giving a great flexibility for users to integrate our AIS AtoN transceivers into their floating lanterns or buoys. The complete model is sealed with weatherproof (IP67) anodized aluminum housing (140mm × 155mm x 60mm) offering users the variety of mounting.

    Moreover, AMEC’s MANDO series is one of the most power-saving AtoN transceivers which definitely outshines other competitors with the ultra low power consumption (FATDMA : 0.432 Ah/Day / RATDMA: 1.656 Ah/Day) while offshore power resources are limited.

    MANDO-301/303 is also equipped with multiple digital/analog interfaces, which allow users to connect other communication module, hydraulic, and metrological sensors.

    High compatibility, low power consumption and superb protection make AMEC’s MANDO-301/303 the perfect solution for AtoN transceivers.

    CAMINO-201 - Overview

    Precision Performance Leads to Safety

    Clear VIEW, Full Control.

    The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a system used by ships and Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) principally for identifying and locating vessels. The primary purpose of AIS is collision avoidance. AIS provides a means for ships to automatically exchange such data as identification, position, course, and speed with other nearby ships and VTS stations. This information can be displayed on either ECS or laptop. AIS is intended to assist the vessel's watchstanding officers and allow maritime authorities to track and monitor vessel movements.

    The International Maritime Organization's (IMO) International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) requires Class A AIS devices to be fitted aboard international voyaging ships with gross tonnage over 300, and all passenger ships regardless of sizes. As for non-SOLAS and other recreational vessels, a simple, compact, and cost-effective Class B AIS is recommended. Class B AIS is fully compatible with Class A AIS and retains major functions of collision avoidance and improving situational awareness.

    AMEC all-in-one Class B AIS, the CAMINO-201, is one of few models with superior specifications. The built-in 5.7” color display with dotted coastal lines provides mariners with direct and clear AIS information and saves troubles of connecting to other display, and NEMA 0183 offers users with more flexibility to other maritime equipments while necessary. Moreover, both RS-232 and Bluetooth are designed as standard for further software upgrades and connection with laptops. Bluetooth wireless network also enables flexible usage along with other Bluetooth equipped devices. In addition, AMEC also provides complete customization services to satisfy all mariners’ needs. AMEC's comprehensive in-house design capabilities provide our clients with differentiated and versatile AIS solutions.

    CAMINO-101 - Overview

    Precision Performance Leads to Safety:

    AIS is a Very High Frequency (VHF) radio broadcasting system that transfers packets of data over the VHF data link and enables AIS equipped vessels and shore-based stations to send and receive identification information that can be displayed on an electronic chart, computer display, or compatible radar. This information can help in situational awareness and provide a means to assist in collision avoidance. In addition, AIS can serve as a navigation aid by providing location and additional information about buoys and lights.

    Class B provides relatively limited functionality and is intended for non-SOLAS vessels. It is not mandated by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and has been developed for vessels such as work craft and pleasure boats.

    AMEC CAMINO-101 has most of the functions as CAMINO-201 except the display. NEMA 0183 linkage to other maritime equipments enables mariners with integrated navigations and safety information on a single display. In addition to RS-232, the optional innovative Bluetooth wireless network saves users from cabling troubles and provides better mobility. The AMEC professional viewer program in standard package offers boaters with full surrounding awareness and better operation flexibility. On the other hand, AMEC is also capable of delivering a full range of tailor-made services to government authorities, or any parties with unique requests.
