USCG – AIS Encoding Guide

The US Coast Guard has posted an AIS Encoding Guide. International and domestic regulations require that mariners maintain each Automatic Identification System (AIS) in effective operating condition, which includes accurate data input and upkeep of AIS data parameters. The Guide may assist in meeting those requirements. (7/8/15).

Editor’s Note: The current locations of Tall Ships America Member Vessels with AIS capabilities can now be viewed on Tall Ships America’s new Fleet Tracker (updates in progress).
