_The automatic identification system called AIS is an automatic tracking system used on board of ships, on shore and by VTS – Vessel Traffic Services

Originally AIS was meant for ships to avoid collisions with other ships. Nowadays VTS use AIS Base Stations to provide additional traffic awareness and information about the configuration and movements of ships. IMO and SOLAS rules require professional vessels, platforms and workboats to be fitted with Automatic Identification System transponder aboard.
