AIS Partnership: Cooperation Between Fleetmon and Rostock Maritime Museum Sealed

in AIS, Sponsoring, Partnering by

Some cooperations and partnerships are particularly special to us at FleetMon. These include, above all, those with a connection to our home port of Rostock, Germany. The newest cooperation we have started is with the Maritime Museum. We installed an AIS antenna there and expanded our network; at the same time, we enriched the Maritime Museum with a new attraction.

Supporting Research at Heriot-Watt University & Expanding Our AIS Network in Scotland

in AIS, Research, Partnering by

FleetMon has a network of over 5,000 AIS receivers to guarantee the best coverage for our customers and partners. Our stations are installed at ports, ships, private buildings, and institutions. The group of AIS partners actively setting up stations worldwide has been built up over the last 15 years at FleetMon.

A new major project from FleetMon’s AIS team is a collaboration with Emily Hague, Ph.D. Researcher from the Marine Spatial Analysis Group at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland. She studies the impact of underwater noise of shipping traffic on marine mammals in UK waters.

FleetMon supports Emily in her project with AIS data, covering the urbanized waterway Firth of Forth over a 5 year period. In return, she helped us to set up more AIS stations around the coast of Scotland.
