You can sign up to be a Worldwide AIS 2.0 Demo partner. The sign-up is an indicative commitment only, since the exact scope and costs for your involvement cannot be settled at the current stage.
AIS 2.0 is expected to be implemented in SOLAS chapters IV & V as carriage requirements in the upcoming years.
Sternula is the leading provider of AIS 2.0 connectivity with the world’s first commercial AIS 2.0/VDES satellite and we are ready to carry out tests by VDE-SAT.
AIS 2.0 ship terminals and global coverage via satellite are now available!
Sternula is building a satellite-based infrastructure for global maritime data exchange using the new AIS 2.0 (VDES) technology, which is about to become a carriage requirement under the IMO SOLAS Convention.
AIS 2.0 will be a combined satellite and terrestrial network for data exchange with ships globally. AIS 2.0 equipment on vessels will have standardized interfaces, and it will be much cheaper to ship owners than alternative satellite-based connectivity options, making it attractive for the broader maritime industry. This means that AIS/VDES in the future will be the main channel for communication between ships and maritime.
