Nauticast AG

Following the company strategy to expand its global business, Nauticast's SOLAS Class A AlS-Transponder was recently granted two further regional approvals: The USCG/FCC-approval for the North-American market and the CCS-approval for the emerging market of the Federal Republic of China. "AIS is one of the key technologies for the shipping-industry and North-America and China are core-markets for our future business," says Peter Martin, CEO of Nauticast. "We are consequently following our path towards AIS leadership by upgrading our products with new features. This has been recognized in the market and has led to orders of more than 1,500 units." Besides civil maritime applications, the naval market holds huge potential for AIS technology. Nauticast has completed the development of a customized AlS-unit: The Navy X-Pack. The Navy AlS-system is a tailored solution for naval applications and provides specific features for this area of operation; including encryption, shadow or silent mode as well as traffic maneuvers images. Dedicated shore-based systems for RIS (River Information System) and VTS (Vessel Traffic Service) applications will also be made available for naval operations.
