1. What is AIS?
AIS is the short form for Automatic Identification System. Since 01.01.2005 all
SOLAS-Ships above 300 tons and all passenger vessels have to be equipped with AIS.
All ships equipped with AIS permanently broadcast via two dedicated VHF channels (CH
87B and 88B) information about their MMSI-number (MMSI: The vessel’s Maritime
Mobile Service Identity number), call sign, name, position, course, heading, speed, rate
of turn and type of vessel. AIS enables all participants (ships and VTS stations) to
receive information about traffic in their vicinity and to use these data for their own
purpose, especially for collision avoidance. So small boats such as yachts no longer
have to guess whether a high speed ferry that just appears over the horizon could
cause danger to them - AIS automatically calculates the CPA (Closest Point of Approach)
and TCPA (Time to Closest Point of Approach). As vessel information such as the name
and call-sign are known, when in doubt, you can simply give a call via VHF or even
make a DSC-call to the other vessel. In particular, AIS System is of great interests for
pleasure boats. Initially, displaying AIS data was only possible with expensive
vector-chart-systems. Nowadays the yacht-AIS software enables you to display AIS
data on your PC in conformity with IMO and IALA recommendations. All you need is (1)
the Yacht-AIS software and (2) a unit of AIS receiver or transponder.
San Jose Technology Inc. (Sanav) offers reliable AIS systems, including: (1) AIS
receiver; and (2) AIS transponder. Please contact Sanav’s sales or technical team for
further information.

2.3 LED Indicators
(Front side: from left to right)
ON
This is a green LED which indicates, when lit, that the power has been connected
correctly to the transponder and the power switch has been turned on.
Status
This is a green LED which indicates, when lit, that the transponder hardware has been
configured well. (The setup is correct: the operating software is present and running;
and the CPU has activated).
Timeout
This is a yellow LED which indicates, when lit, the transmitter is prevented from
transmitting.
If the unit has not transmitted a position report during the last two reporting intervals
(nominal reporting interval can not be maintained for operational reason, e.g. message
23 quiet period, high VDL load).
The reasons may be that the transponder is unable to transmit an AIS message due to
the channel being already occupied; for instance, by transmissions from other AIS
transponders.
Error
This is a red LED which indicates, when lit, that one of the following status conditions is
possible:
1. GPS is unable to fix the position after 30 minutes.
2. Background noise level is above the threshold level (-77dBm).
TX Off
This is a blue LED which indicates, when lit, that the remote TX Off switch has been
operated to manually stop the AIS-700 from transmitting data.
RX
This is a green LED which indicates, when flashed, that the AIS-700 is receiving data
from other AIS transponders and is outputting this data as VDM NMEA sentences on the
output data ports.
If the green LED that constantly lit without flashing, it indicates that the unit has not
been programmed with its personalized data. It will still send received data to the
output port, but will not transmit any data.
TX
This is a red LED which indicates, when flashed once, that the AIS-700 is transmitting
its own AIS data.

4. Installing an AIS VHF Antenna
The VHF antenna is not included in the AIS-700 package because the installation of
antenna is different from one vessel to another. You can find an antenna from a marine
electronics outlet.
The AIS VHF antenna should be placed in an elevated position that is as free as possible
with minimum of 0.5 meters in the horizontal direction from constructions made of
conductive materials. The antenna should not be installed close to any large vertical
obstruction. The objective for the AIS VHF antenna is to see the horizon freely through
360 degrees.
The AIS VHF antenna should be mounted directly above or below the ship’s primary
VHF radiotelephone antenna, with no horizontal separation and with a minimum of 2.8
meters vertical separation. If it is located on the same plane as other antennas, the
distance apart should be at least 10 meters.

Here are some suggestions before you buy an antenna and installation.
1. Antenna Type: VHF antenna
2. Connector type: BNC plug, 50 ohms.
3. Separate the AIS VHF antenna as far as possible from the other VHF antenna.
4. The AIS VHF antenna should be at least 3 meters away from the high power
transmitters.
5. The antenna should be able to see the clear sky and avoid the large obstructions.
6. The higher the antenna is mounted, the longer the range is.

6. AIS-700 for AIS Transponder
“AIS -700 for AIS Transponder” is GPS software specifically designed for our AIS
Transponder AIS-700. It can read AIS and $GPRMC sentences through the DB-9
connector, and analyze NMEA data. The GPS data can be shown on GPS Information
and save as a log file for analysis and statistics. The user also can set up various
features, such as the Ship’s Name, Call Sign, and MMSI No.
You will see two folders of “License” and “Setup” after inserting the CD. “License” is a
Notepad format with our contact information, software version, and installation
password “demover”. “Setup” is an exe format for executing the “AIS -700 for AIS
Transponder” software.
