Saab TransponderTech AB has been awarded a contract from the Romanian Naval Authority to upgrade and expand the country’s Automatic Identification System (AIS) network along the Black Sea Coast.
Under the contract, Saab will deliver, install and commission four new AIS base stations along the Black Sea Coast. The AIS base stations will be integrated with the Vessel Traffic Management and Information System (VTMIS) in the Romanian Naval Authority headquarters in Constanta.
The system will exchange AIS data and be integrated with the existing Romanian River Information System (RORIS), which was earlier supplied by Saab. RORIS utilizes AIS and other sensors to provide VTMIS coverage over the Romanian portion of the Danube waterway. The system manages in real time the information relative to vessels and their voyages, and provides this information also for external authorized customers.
