At an open workshop in Accra together with the Ghana Maritime Authority and 7 other maritime nations attending online, Lars Moltsen, the Founder and CEO of Sternula, made a presentation of “AIS 2.0” as the recommended name for VDES in the communication with end users (like the mobile industry uses 3G, 4G, and 5G instead of the technical names for those standards).

Lars Moltsen also presented a few use cases that may be offered over AIS 2.0 in short and medium term, and he opened the door for more collaboration and involvement in standardization.
