COM DEV Successfully Completes Airborne AIS Trials


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Com Dev
: 09 March, 2008  (Application Story)
COM DEV International Ltd has announced that it has successfully completed the airborne validation trials of its advanced Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver solution.
The trials have validated key aspects of system performance and demonstrated that COM DEV's receiver solution is capable of extracting a significantly greater number of AIS signals compared to a standard receiver approach. The results suggest that such a system, employed in space, will provide a persistent and
predictable level of performance.

COM DEV is also completing the development of a nano-satellite which is being built by the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies/Space Flight Lab. The spacecraft will be ready for launch in the spring of 2008 as planned and will be deployed in the first space-based validation trial of an advanced AIS capability designed to deal with large numbers of overlapping AIS signals. In parallel, COM DEV's strategic AIS partner, Gatehouse, is developing software that will enable data collected from space to be displayed and managed as part of an integrated maritime domain awareness picture by adding the dimension of extended long-range monitoring capability.

COM DEV has received expressions of interest from a number of maritime agencies of nations that plan to assess the Advanced AIS system performance in addressing their maritime safety and monitoring needs.

COM DEV is confident that its novel and patented solution will exceed, by a wide margin, the space-based AIS performance of competing AIS receiver designs. AIS data is intended to be provided only to authorized maritime authorities in accordance with internationally accepted standards related to Long Range Identification and Tracking of vessels.
