R40 Base Station
The R40 Base Station from Saab 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 will give the possibility to monitor and follow ships’ movements in an efficient way.
The R40 is installed either stand-alone or integrated into a network, such as the market leading Saab AIS Network. Product variants exist for:
- Full version, including all features, e.g. Redundant configuration AtoN functions and all options as specified in the IEC standard.
- Standard version, meeting all requirements in the IEC standard.
- Receive-only version.
- Repeater version.
- Secure version, allowing the user to transmit and receive encrypted messages.
