R40 Base Station

The R40 AIS Base Station from Saab TransponderTech is the result of our on-going efforts to enhance all of our products. The unit also includes an embedded Base Station Controller (BSC) that is used for monitoring and configuration, as well as connecting to Ethernet LAN. With the R40, Saab TransponderTech continues to hold its leadership in AIS technology. The R40 is of course compliant with the R&TTE Directive and is like its pre-decessors type approved by BSH with reference to AIS Base Station Standard IEC 62320-1. The R40 AIS Base Station is the main component of a Physical AIS Shore Station as defined by IALA. Its main purpose is to receive data from- and transmit data to AIS equipped vessels, travelling within the coverage area of the Base Station. This enables monitoring of ships´ movements and status in real time. The R40 can either be installed as stand-alone or be integrated into a network, such as the market leading AIS Network and the CoastWatch AIS monitoring and control suite by Saab.
