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.

How a fully autonomous AIS unit adds value to worldwide vessel tracking

in Updates, Research, Partnering by

In June 2021, we announced FleetMon’s Innovation Lab, bundling all our Research & Development projects. There’s something new coming out of the Lab:

Around a year ago, we started a pilot project in collaboration with Julius Marine, a local producer of buoys and fairway lighting. The project aims to develop a modular, autonomous AIS station that runs in locations without a power supply or a stable internet connection. In addition to an AIS receiving antenna, the station also contains a variety of measuring sensors. It works autonomously, enabled by two solar panels that supply the powerful battery and the Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) module for data transmission with energy. This means that the weatherproof station can operate outside all year round to receive ship position data and other measurement data. Servicing the autonomous AIS station is not necessary.
