Saab TransponderTech Wins Order For the First AIS

Friday, November 30, 2001
Sweden-based Saab TransponderTech AB has recently received two prestigious orders to China via STN-Atlas. Following an order by STN-Atlas for a VTS system in Kvitsøy, Norway, earlier this year, Saab TransponderTech has now also won an order for several R30 AIS Base Stations for the VTS system in Huangha and Majisuan in China. With these orders, Saab TransponderTech establishes itself as the leading Automatic Identification System (AIS) supplier in the Far East. In Majisuan, the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) system is already under construction and will allow the important ability to identify, track and serve all commercial vessels in the area carrying AIS-equipment. Marine Safety Agency (MSA) is herewith shouldering an important responsibility for the implementation of the new AIS-rules, taking effect on July 1, 2002.
