1 General Introduction
IMPORTANT: IMO REGULATIONS MANDATES that after the physical installation
has been successfully completed, all ships data and settings be entered into the AIS
transponder. See Section 4 for further instructions.
1.1
Description of AIS
What does the abbreviation AIS stand for?
AIS stands for: “Automatic Identification System”
What is AIS?
According to IALA regulations, AIS is defined as follows:
Very simply, the AIS is a broadcast Transponder system, operating in the VHF maritime
mobile Band. It is capable of sending ship information such as identification, position
course, speed and more, to other ships and to shore. It can handle multiple reports at
rapid update rates and uses Self-Organizing Time Division Multiple Access (SOTDMA)
technology to meet these high broadcast rates and ensure reliable and robust ship to ship
operation.
What are the performance standards of AIS?
The IMO defines the performance standards as follows:
-
Ship to Ship working
Ship to Shore working, including Long Range Application
Automatic and continuous operation
Provision of information messaging
Utilization of maritime VHF channels
Which modules make up an AIS-Transponder?
The Modules:
-
DGPS / GPS receiver
VHF Radio
Antenna
Computer (CPU)
Power Supply
Appropriate application software connects the individual modules.
In which modes does AIS function?
AIS are required to function flawlessly in a variety of modes. The relevant regulations require:
The system shall be capable of
- An "autonomous and continuous" mode for operation in all areas. This mode
shall be capable of being switched to/from one of the following alternate modes by
a competent authority;
Installation Manual
1
Y1-03-0204 Rev.J
-
1.2
An "assigned" mode for operation in an area subject to a competent authority
responsible for traffic monitoring such that the data transmission interval and/or
time slots may be set remotely by that authority;
A "polling or controlled" mode, where the data transfer occurs in response to
interrogation from a ship or competent authority.
AIS in an Operational Environment
This illustration depicts a typical AIS System, where two or more AIS
equipped vessels (and shore based systems) are automatically
communicating with each other.
On the bottom, a typical NAUTICAST installation in a common environment is shown.
The NAUTICAST is connected to the vessels emergency power supply, and in
connection with the VHF, and GPS-Antennas, the minimal requirements for Transponder
operation are fulfilled.
Both vessels in the above illustration are equipped with a NAUTICAST (or any other
certified AIS-Transponder). Due to “Time – Synchronization” they use the same
organization of free and allocated windows (Slots) in the shared VHF Data Link (this
method is called “Self Organized Time Division Multiple Access”) to send and receive
messages.
Without the necessity of any active interaction, both vessels know exactly who or what is
cruising nearby and where the individual object is heading.

Y1-03-0204 Rev.J
1.3
AIS Networks
The scenario below shows a full AIS coverage area (including all applications and complete
shore infrastructure).
The Carriage Requirement currently applies exclusively to SOLAS Vessels, but following the
current international discussions on maritime security; it is common understanding that other
possible AIS users will follow very soon. Shore Based infrastructure will be among the first
groups to become AIS equipped.

1.4
Carriage Requirement
1.4.1
Chapter V (Safety of Navigation) Regulation 19, of the SOLAS Convention.
IMO regulations require sea vessels from a size of 300 GT (Gross Tonnage) in international
and 500 GT in national waters to be equipped with an AIS-Transponder. The implementation
of this legislation began on July 1, 2002 and will be enforced in the following stages:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
July 2002 for all vessels built from this period onwards
July 2003 for all passenger ships and all tankers which were built before July 1, 2002
July 2004 for all ships of 50,000 GT and above which were built before July 1, 2002
July 2005 for all ships from 10,000 GT up to under 50,000 which were built before
July 1, 2002
July 2006 for all ships from 3,000 GT up to under 10,000 which were built before
July 1, 2002
July 2007 for all ships from 300 GT up to under 3,000 which were built before
July 1, 2002
July 2008 for all other ships which do not travel in international waters and were built
before July 2002
In some cases, exemptions may be granted to such ships, which will be taken off sea within 2
years of legislation coming into effect.
Refer to IMO Recommendation ITU-R M.1371-1 and IALA-AIS-Guidelines
1.4.2
Accelerated Implementation of AIS:

The vessels power supply must suffice, and the GMDSS power supply has to be
used.
Installation of the pilot plug in conning position (close to the pilot working place).
Installation Overview
Survey
AIS is considered part of the ship’s radio station and is surveyed together with radio
installation. Surveys on SOLAS Convention ships should be carried out in accordance with
the rules laid down in IMO Res. A 746(18) "Survey Guidelines under the harmonized system
of survey and certification" (R) 8, and "Protocol of 1988 relating to the International
Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974."
The NAUTICAST consists of one unit, which integrates all necessary modules.

Y1-03-0204 Rev.J
Step-by-Step Installation Procedure:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Mount the NAUTICAST close to ships operation workstation for traffic surveillance and
maneuvering.
Use the VHF adapter cable (P/N 2612) together with the VHF plug and TNC plug to
connect the VHF and GPS antenna cables and antennas.
The sensors, ECDIS, PC, pilot case, long range devices and auxiliary displays can be
connected to the NAUTICAST cabinet by the AIS cable by means of the connection
box. The device is driven by a 24V DC 7A supply, which is connected to the power
terminal at the connection box. The AIS should be connected to an emergency power
source. A battery capacity calculation together with GMDSS-equipment is needed!
Please refer to Appendix 8.1 for examples of battery capacity calculations.
After performing these steps, the NAUTICAST automatically starts operation.
The NAUTICAST has a ground terminal which has to be connected to ship ground.
Now configure the required initial system parameters according to Chapter 4 “Starting
the NAUTICAST”.

Pilot Port CH 5
The used sentence formatters for the pilot plug are the same as those listed for the ECDIS
port.
Note:
A pilot input/output port is part of an AIS Class A installation. A plug connected to this port
should be installed on the bridge near the pilot’s operating position, so that a pilot can
connect a Personal Pilot Unit (PPU) if required. Also, a power connector for the pilot unit
should be available nearby.
The pilot plug should be configured as follows: (Refer to SUB-COMMITTEE ON SAFETY OF
NAVIGATION NAV48/18 2.4.2002)
AMP/Receptacle (Square Flanged (-1) or Free-Hanging (-2)), Shell size 11, 9-pin,
Std. Sex 206486-1/2 or equivalent with the following connections:
- Tx A (out-) is connected to Pin 1
- Tx B (out+) is connected to Pin 4
- Rx A (in-) is connected to Pin 5
- Rx B (in+) is connected to Pin 6
- Shield is connected to Pin 9
3.4.4
Long Range CH 8
The AIS long range function requires a compatible long range communication system (e.g.
Inmarsat-C or MF/HF radio as part of GMDSS). This connection is required in order to
activate the long range function of the AIS. Its input/output port must meet the IEC 61162-2
requirements.

3.5
Sensor Interface Definitions
All interface ports of the NAUTICAST comply with IEC-61162-1 / -2 and NMEA-0183 HS 3.0
specifications (aligned to RS422 parameters).
3.5.1
Talker drive circuits
The maximum output current is Imax = 50mA on each port. The drive circuit meets the
requirements of ITU-T V.11.
3.5.2
Listener Receiver Circuits
Multiple listeners may be connected to a single talker. Optional termination resistors
(120Ohm) for the input lines are provided in the connection box. The input terminals A, B and
C are electrically isolated from the remaining electronics of the listening device.
The input impedance is 30kOhm between A and B lines, disregarding the connection of
termination resistors. The minimum input voltage is ±0,3V.
The listener's receiver circuit complies with ITU-T V.11.
3.5.3
Electrical isolation
There are no direct electrical connections between the signal lines A and B.
The signal ground C must not be connected to the ship main ground or power line!
This isolation is in accordance with IEC 60945.
3.5.4
Maximum voltage on the bus
The maximum applied voltage between signal lines A and B and between either line and
ground C is in accordance with ITU-T V.11. For protection against incorrect wiring and for
unintended connection to older TALKER models, all receiver circuit devices are capable of
withstanding 15 V between both lines and signal ground for an indefinite period.
3.5.5
Data transmission
Data is transmitted in serial asynchronous form in accordance with IEC 61162-1. The first bit
is a start bit, and is followed by data bits, whereby the least significant bit is first.
The following parameters are used:
– Baud rate 38 400 (bits/s) 9600 (bits/s) 4 800 (bits/s)
– Data bits 8 (D7 = 0), parity none
– Stop bits 1.

Sensor notes
External Sensor
The AIS has interfaces (configurable as IEC 61162-1 or 61162-2) for position, bottom track
(BT) speed, heading and rate of turn (ROT) sensors. In general, sensors installed in
compliance with other carriage requirements of SOLAS Chapter V should be connected to
the AIS System.*1. The sensor information transmitted by AIS should be the same
information being used for navigation of the ship. Interfacing problems might occur if the
existing on board sensors do not have serial (IEC 61162) outputs. A converter is needed to
translate the non conform data to IEC 61162 – sensor data. For Example ACR Converter
type P/N 2641.
*1) The fact that AIS is fitted on board a vessel does NOT entail the need to install additional sensors
other than those stated in the carriage requirements.
External GPS
GNSS position sensors normally have IEC 61162 outputs suitable for direct AIS interfacing.
However, it is important to note that:
• The Geodetic Datum of the position data is transmitted by the sensor in WGS84 so that an
IEC 61162 DTM sentence is configured.
• AIS is able to process two reference points for its antenna position, one for external, and
one for an internal sensor. If more than one external reference point is used, the appropriate
information needs to be input to the AIS, so that the reference point information is suitably
adjusted.
External Heading
A gyrocompass providing heading information is a mandatory sensor input to the AIS. A
converter unit (synchro or step-signal converter to NMEA 0183 v.3.0 for example ACR
Converter type P/N 2641 will be needed for AIS connection in the case that the ship’s
gyrocompass does not provide IEC 61162 output.
External Speed and Course
If a bottom track (BT)log for speed over ground (SOG) is available, it may be connected. A
converter (for example Raytheon converter type: 133-812) is needed if the BT-log does not
provide IEC 61162 outputs
External Rate of Turn
Not all ships will carry a Rate-Of-Turn (ROT) indicator according to IMO A.526. However, if a
rate-of-turn indicator is available and it includes an IEC 61162 interface, it should be
connected to the AIS.
If ROT information is not available from a ROT indicator, it may (optionally) be derived from
heading information through:
• The gyrocompass itself,
• An external converter unit (see Heading),
• The AIS itself (calculated ROT).

Sensor Hardware Installation:
3.7.1
Installation of an RS422 serial interface:
In most cases, the output from a GPS is already being used by existing navigation
equipment. It is possible to split an RS 422 output for two devices. If the signal becomes too
low, then an NMEA splitter has to be used.
Example for single talk multi-listener connection:
Shields

- IN
B
+ IN
G1 (or 2,3)
C (GND)
AIS Conncetion Box
Talker (e.g.: GPS)
A

C (GND)
Listener (other
equipment)
Each interface on the Transponder is a RS422 serial interface
The shield or ship main ground should not be connected with the signal ground (GND).

A variety of possible settings can be made on this screen. It is possible to navigate from one
configuration item to another by pressing the up and down arrow keys.
Value will be changed by pressing the left and right arrow key.
The fastest way to jump from one sensor to another is by pressing numbers 1 – 3 on the
keyboard. (Refer also to chapter 3.8.4 for specific information on a particular sensor)
The following changes can be undertaken for each of the sensor interfaces (by left and right
arrow key):
o
Changing the baud rate (4800, 9600 and 38400) to the required speed of the sensor
device by pressing the right or left arrow keys.
o
Enabling or disabling CRC-Checking by pressing the right or left arrow keys.
<auto>
Sentence will be accepted with or without Checksum
<on>

o
Configuring NMEA sentences, which the system filters and ignores
There are 5 entry fields where characters can be input. Two positions of each entry
field are for Talker-Id, and three for Sentence-Id, which represents the NMEAsentence which should be ignored by the system.
(i.e. the default setting: “HC“ means ignore all NMEA records starting with HC on this
particular sensor interface)
Note: HC stands for magnetic north and should be ignored.
For Example:
--VTG means all VTG sentence IDs will be ignored like GPVTG, GNVTG…
VW--- means all VW Talkers ID from speed log will be ignored like VWVHW, VWVBW
Changes on this screen can be saved by pressing the “Save” – Button [M5].
The factory settings can be recalled be pressing the “Default” – Button [M6].
Returning back to the previous screen is possible by pressing the “BACK” – Button [M8].
The next step is the analysis of the current sensor interface settings, which can be
undertaken with the “Analyze” – Button [M7]. After pressing this button, the real-time analysis
of the sensor data stream begins. This process takes around 30 seconds and is visible on a
temporary screen.

Calculated Values
Processed dynamic ship data such as position, SOG etc. is generated by NMEA sentences.
Exceptions:
If "Calc" is displayed on the sensor analyze screen, this means that this sentence is used for
calculating dynamic ship data.
ROT out of HDT
ROT direction left / right -/+ will be calculated out of the HDT Message, if a TIROT sentence
(only “TI”-Talker devices are valid) is not connected.
ROT > +10°/min
ROT < -10°/min
Other
Î
Î
Î
Output +720°/min
Output -720°/min
Output 0°/min
COG information out of VBW
COG will be generated out of VBW, if HDT is available. In this case the atan2 of the
longitudinal and transversal speed plus heading is basis of the calculation.
Longitudinal/Transversal SOG from VBW
If VBW is available, SOG is also calculated without HDT.

3.11 Installation of VHF / GPS Antennas
Interference to the Ship’s VHF Radiotelephone
The AIS ship borne equipment, like any other ship borne transceiver operating in the VHF
maritime band, may cause interference to a ship’s VHF radiotelephone. Because AIS is a
digital system, this interference may occur as a periodic (e.g. every 20 seconds) soft clicking
sound on the ship’s radiotelephone. This affect may become more noticeable if the VHF
radiotelephone antenna is located close to the AIS VHF antenna, and when the
radiotelephone is operating on channels near the AIS operating channels (e.g. channels 27,
28 and 86).
Attention should be paid to the location and installation of the various antennas, in order to
support the antenna characteristics in the best possible way.
3.11.1 VHF Antenna Installation
Antenna Location
Location of the mandatory AIS VHF-antenna should be carefully considered. Digital
communication is more sensitive than analogue/voice communication to interference created
by reflections caused by obstructions such as masts and booms. It may be necessary to
relocate the VHF radiotelephone antenna to minimize interference effects.
To minimize the interference effects, the following guidelines apply:
•
The AIS VHF antenna should have omni directional vertical polarization providing 3 to 5
dB gain.
•
The AIS VHF antenna should be placed in an elevated position, as free standing as
possible, with a minimum of 2 meters in horizontal direction from constructions made of
conductive materials. The antenna should not be installed close to any large vertical
obstruction. The AIS VHF antenna should have a visible sky of 360°.
•
The AIS VHF antenna should be installed at least 3 meters away from interfering highpower energy sources such as radar and other transmitting radio antennas, and out of the
way of the transmitting beam.
•
There should not be more than one antenna on each level. The AIS VHF antenna should
be mounted directly above or below the ship’s primary VHF radiotelephone antenna, with
no horizontal separation and a minimum of 2 meters vertical separation. If it is located on
the same level as other antennas, the distance apart should measure at least 10 meters.
See also sample for antenna layout in the Appendix (Drawings and Approvals)
Cabling
The cable should be kept as short as possible to minimize attenuation of the signal. Double
shielded coaxial cables equal to or better than RG214 is recommended.
RG214 at VHF attenuation per meter of app. 0,07 dB/m (45m = 3,15db)
VHF AIS frequency app. 162MHz
Installation Manual
28
Y1-03-0204 Rev.J
All outdoor connectors on the coaxial cables should be fitted with preventive isolation, such
as shrink-stocking with silicone to protect the antenna cable against water penetration.
Coaxial cables should be installed in separate signal cable channels/tubes, and at least 10
cm away from any power supply cables. Crossing of cables should take place at right angles
(90°). Coaxial cables should not be exposed to sharp bends, which may lead to changes to
the characteristic impedance of the cable. The minimum bend radius should be 5 times the
cables outside diameter.
Grounding
Coaxial down-leads must be used for all receiving antennas, and the coaxial screen should
be connected to the ground at one end.
3.11.2 GNSS Antenna installation
A Class A AIS must be connected to a GNSS antenna.
Location
The GNSS antenna must be installed where it has a clear view of the sky, so that it accesses
the horizon freely through 360°, with a vertical observation of 5 to 90 degrees above the
horizon. Small diameter obstructions, such as masts and booms, do not seriously impair
signal reception, but such objects must not eclipse more than a few degrees of any given
bearing.
The antenna must be located at least three meters away from, and out of the transmitting
beam of high-power transmitters (S-Band Radar and/or Inmarsat systems). This includes the
ship’s own AIS VHF antenna, if it is designed and installed separately. See also sample for
antenna layout in Installation Manual Appendix 8.2 (Drawings)
If a DGNSS system is included or connected to the AIS system, the installation of the
antenna should be undertaken in accordance with IEC 61108-4, Edition 1.
Cabling
To achieve optimum performance, the gain of the antenna pre-amplifier should match the
cable attenuation. The resulting installation gain (pre-amplifier gain - cable attenuation)
should be within 0 to 10 dB (RG214 at GPS attenuation per meter of app. 0,35 dB/m (45m =
15,75dB); GPS frequency app. 1,2GHz).
The coaxial cable between the antenna and the AIS ship borne station connector should be
routed directly, in order to reduce electromagnetic interference. The cable should not be
installed close to high-power lines, such as radar or radio-transmitter lines, or near the AIS
VHF antenna cable. A space of one meter or more is recommended in order to avoid
degradation due to RF-coupling. Crossing of antenna cables should take place at 90 degrees,
to minimize magnetic field coupling.
Attenuation
As described above, the resulting installation gain should be between 0 to 10 dB. If the
internal GPS receiver will be overloaded with more than 18dB, then it could be damaged.

Antenna Layout
The position of the VHF and GNSS – antennas must be added to the existing antenna layout
of the vessel.
3.11.3 Power Supply
The NAUTICAST must be supplied from the emergency power source. A further requirement
is to connect AIS to the reserve power source of the GMDSS. A new battery capacity
calculation must then be undertaken. See sample in 8.1 (Samples for battery calculation)
Following documents are needed for the installation approval of the classification
• Antenna Layout (arrangement)
• Battery Calculation
• Connection / Block – Diagram with locations
• Type Approval Certificate

Service and User Passwords:
The Transponder system is equipped with two levels of Password Protection, User and
Service Password.
1) The User Password, which is the lower security level, allows access to all menus except
Menu 6: Service Configuration which is protected by the Service Password.
2) The Service Password is required in order to enter the Service Configuration Menu. This is
a higher security level than can not be accessed with the User Password and therefore
ensures that the Service Configuration is protected, and limited to authorized service
personnel.
The master of the vessel has to ensure that only authorized persons are allowed to make
changes to the Service Configuration and ensures that the newly reset password is stored
very carefully, as it can not be reset from the default “NAUT” a second time.
WARNING: a master key is not available and the unit would have to be returned to a service
center to correct for a lost Service password.
The User Password can be reset in the service configuration menu by entering the Service
Configuration menu and creating a new password.
Changing the Service Password
Select “Service Configuration” from the Main Menu with the cursor button [Up] & [Down] or
press Number 6 on the keyboard.

5 Troubleshooting
5.1
Reading and understanding Alarms:
The NAUTICAST differentiates between Alarm and TXT messages. An Alarm informs the
user about major system malfunctions and failings in the connected sensors.
The Alarm Status informs the user about all active Alarms. The Alarm will be disabled and
deleted from the Alarm Status, as soon as the displayed problem has been rectified.
The TXT status displays additional sensor information and the UTC clock status.
See tables (Chapter 5.2 & 5.3) for Alarm and TXT Messages.
Select “AIS Status” with cursor button [Up] & [Down]

Reaction: The transponder unit stops transmission. If Alarm ID 01 and
ID 02 are simultaneously displayed, then a major antenna problem has
arisen.
Remedy:
Check if the antenna is AIS compatible (156-162 MHz) and if the
antenna cabling has a short circuit or is missing any contacts at the
connectors.
If the ID 01 is displayed as a stand alone message, then the unit
requires replacing.
Reaction: The transponder unit continues transmission.

Check the antenna and the antenna cabling (RG214 / 50 Ohm cable
required).
Reaction: The transponder unit stops transmission on the affected
channel,
Remedy;
If this alarm reoccurs regularly, then the transponder unit requires
replacing.
