Saab Transponder Tech and International Communications and Navigation Limited (ICAN) have been awarded contracts
by Lockheed Martin Overseas Corp. to provide Automatic Identification System
(AIS) solutions for Greece and Turkey. Complying with all IMO performance standards, the software delivers vessel position
and related information from ship to ship and from ship to shore. It is formatted to provide collision avoidance capability on the ship's bridge and to augment vessel traffic management systems. Ships will carry a transponder that broadcasts the ship's identity, position, speed, course and other information to all other AIS users within VHF Radio range.
