The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automatic tracking 
system used on ships and by vessel traffic services (VTS) for 
identifying and locating vessels by electronically exchanging data with 
other nearby ships and AIS Base stations. AIS information supplements 
marine radar, which continues to be the primary method of collision 
avoidance for water transport.
