- Checking type of the GPS to be connected with AIS


Some AIS’s cannot be connected, depending on the type of GPS. Check the type
referring to Page 1-3. If other manufacturer’s product is to be used, check the
followings:
- NMEA version, Output sentence, Output intervals: less than 5 seconds
- Output specification of RS-422/C, Loop/RS-232C, etc.

- Checking type of GYRO to be connected with AIS


If NMEA port can be used, check that the NMEA version is 2.0 or higher, the output
intervals are less than 5 seconds, and the output is made through RS-422. If there is
no NMEA output, connect through an AD converter (AD-100).

- Checking type of ROT to be connected with AIS


Connect ROT with $TI-ROT sentence if NMEA version is 2.0 or higher, the output
intervals are less than 5 seconds, and the output is made through RS-422. Here, the
$HE-ROT output from GYRO is not the required ROT.

1.1 Main points of preliminary survey

- Checking whether pilot plug is to be installed or not


The pilot plug is required to ships passing through Panama Canal and Saint Lawrence
River. Pilot Plug: OP24-3 is an option. The power receptacle for the pilot PC is to be
provided by users.
Mount the pilot plug near the front wall of coning position No.1, and prepare the
power receptacle for the pilot PC in the vicinity (the power is supplied from the main
and emergency source).

- Selecting antenna
Check whether a GPS/VHF combined antenna is to be installed, or separated
antennas for GPS and for VHF are to be installed.
The GPS/VHF combined antenna is recommended because it can be installed more
easily.
It is also recommended that the antenna is installed at the antenna post forward of the
compass deck. However, do not install at the center part.

- Checking the specifications of power source in the ship. Make sure of the connections
because connection to the reserve source is requested in some occasions.

- Connect the alarm output of AIS (relay) to an audible alarm device or the ships alarm
system, if available.

1.2 On AIS to be connected with GPS

1.2 On AIS to be connected with GPS


Basically, connect AIS with GPS that type approved GNSS, and NMEA version must
be 2.0 or higher.
- GPS conforming to A819 (19) : GP-80, GP-500M2
- GPS conforming to MSC.112(73) : GP-90

Note)
GNSS receiver installed on or after 01 July 2003 shall conform to performance
standard MSC 112(73). This performance standard is consistent with AIS interface
requirements.

It is recommended to determine whether the equipped GPS can be used as the sensor
input to the AIS installed in already existing ships or not according to the following, but
the requirements the ships class should be observed:

1. Non type approved GNSS, normally installed before 1995.


- Positioning data, SOG and COG data output.
If the GNSS installed is approved for meeting the carriage
requirements for GNSS (SOLAS Chapter V Regulation 19, paragraph
2.1.6 ) this manual will accept this GNSS as the source of SOG, COG
and Position to the AIS.
- Positioning data, SOG and COG data do not output.
Recommend to replace the GNSS receiver with a type approved GNSS,
providing the required interface: Position, COG and SOG.

2. GNSS type approved conforming with A.819(19), normally installed after 1996.
This performance standard state that the GNSS shall be provided with at least on
output from which position information can be supplied. The interface should
conform to the IEC 61162.
- Positioning data, SOG and COG data output.
If the GNSS installed is approved for meeting the carriage requirements for
GNSS (SOLAS Chapter V Regulation 19, paragraph 2.1.6 ) this manual will
accept this GNSS as the source of SOG, COG and Position to the AIS.
- Positioning data, SOG and COG data do not output.
Recommend to replace the GNSS receiver with a type approved GNSS,

Chapter 2. Installation

2.1 Outline of the installation


2.1.1 Installation of antennas
1. Installation of the antenna at a high position and horizontally 2 m apart from
conductive structures. Do not install the antenna near large vertical impediments. The
antenna must overlook 360 degrees horizontally.

2. Keep the antenna 3 m or more apart from a radar or other transmitting antennas, and
install it outside the transmitting beam of the transmitter.

3. Install the antenna directly above or below and vertically 2.8 m or more apart from
RT VHF antenna. (Do not set apart from the vertical position of the RT VHF
antenna.) Or, install the antenna horizontally 10 m or more apart from the RT VHF
antenna.

Fig. 2.1.1 Outline of the antennas installation

2.1.2 Wiring
1. Use coaxial cable of 8D-FB-CV:30/50 m. If other coaxial cable is to be used, employ
coaxial cable equivalent to RG-214 and with double shielding. Keep the attenuation
of the cable not more than 10 dB at 1.5 GHz.

2. All outdoor installed connector on the coaxial cable should be waterproof by design
to protect against water penetration into the antenna cable.
Keep bending radius of the coaxial cable 5 times as much as the outer diameter of the
cable.

3. Keep the coaxial cable 10 cm or more apart from the power line. When crossing with
other cables, keep the cross angle 90° each other.

2.1 Outline of the installation

2.1.3 Mounting the FA-100


Mount the FA-100 at a position where the navigator can normally operate it and within
his normal steering area. The cable length between FA-100 and CB-100 is about 3 m.
Take the position of CB-100 into account.

2.1.4 Connection to ECDIS or ARPA/RADAR


If there is navigational equipment capable of processing and displaying AIS information
such as ECDIS, radar or an integrated system available on board the ship, the AIS Class
A mobile system may be connected to that system via the AIS Presentation Interface
(PI). The PI (input/output) should meet the requirements of IEC 61162-2 (RS-422/34.8
kbps).

2.1.5 Connection to Alarm system


Connect the alarm output of AIS (relay) to an audible alarm device or the ships alarm
system, if available.

2.1.6 Mounting the pilot plug


1. The pilot plug (OP24-3) shall be close to coning position No.1 in the navigation
bridge, and connect it to the input/output port for the pilot plug. Indicate the pilot
plug as “AIS Pilot Plug”.

2. And shall have nearby a USA standard (NEMA5-15R) 120V, AC, 3-prong power
receptacle, to provide power to the pilot’s laptop computer.
Note) In the “Panama cannel” commented that 100 to 240 VAC is usable.

2.1.7 Power supply


Connect to the main power and the emergency power source. Make sure of the
connections because connection to the reserve source is requested in some occasions.

2.2 Examples of the installation


2.2.1 Installation of antennas
Two T/Rx VHF antennas for VHF transceiver, two antennas for CH70 DSC WR, and
antennas for MF/HF, radar and INMARSAT, etc. are to be installed.
Referring Page 2-1, installation of these antennas at each position so as to minimize
their interferences.
For example, when installing VHF antenna and AIS VHF antenna on a same horizontal
plane, separate them each other more than 10 m, and when installing them in a vertical
direction, separate them more than 2.8 m. Also, separate them more than 3m from the
transmitting antennas for radar and other transmitters and install them out of the
transmitting beams.
With a GPS/VHF combined antenna, GVA-100, will be easier to install.

It recommended to install the GPS/VHF


combined antenna for AIS on the antenna
post forward of the compass deck. But, do
not install at the center part.

Install the T/Rx VHF antennas No.1 and


No.2 on the radar mast with taking their
reach and sensitivity into account.

2.4 Connecting two or more radars

2.4 Connecting two or more radars


There are four ports provided to connect FR-2105/FR-2805 series, FEA-2105, L/R, and
the pilot plug. When connecting two or more radars, connect them in parallel, or
distribute the signals with MD-550.
When one port is assigned to two or more signals with MD-550, the other loads will not
be affected, even if one of the input load circuits comes to failure.

FR-1205/FR-2805 series and FEA-2105 only receive data from AIS, and do not
send data to AIS.

Example of the parallel connection

The parallel connection was already checked with two units.

2.5.3 Method of receiving input signals from sensors except


IEC-61162
(New connection box of 48P type for insulated units)
IEC-61162-2 requires to connect AIS through RS-422 (differential input/output), and
when AIS is connected to GPS or the like that delivers output through a current loop, it
is recommended to use a converter.
With FA-100, if GPS outputs through “RS-232C”, it is possible to input through the
RS-232C of [PC I/O] port.

1. Method of receiving current loop signals


Connection
The current loop output circuit must be a source follower type. That of open collector
type does not apply.

Case-1) Changing the wiring and deleting resistors

Remove the resistors of the


ports to be connected.

1. DTM sentence
The AIS requires the Geodetic Datum of the position data, WGS-84. If the position
sensor does not output DTM sentence, the AIS must be set as such.

2. ROT source
The AIS automatically selects the ROT source with the highest priority available:
TI-ROT(Rate of Turn Indicator) > Other ROT source.
Other ROT source data is based on HDG information. When other data source is in use,
the contents of the ROT field in the AIS data is given in Table 4.1.3.

The switching time form the higher to the lower is 5 seconds and 30 seconds in the
opposite direction.
To check automatic switch over function;
1. Turn off the external GPS.
2. Make sure that position, SOG and COG are displayed normally after 5 seconds,
using the internal GPS.
3. Turn on the external GPS.
4. Make sure that position, SOG and COG are displayed after 30 seconds, using the
external GPS.

GUIDELINES FOR THE INSTALLATION OF A SHIPBORNE


AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (AIS)

1 The Sub-Committee on Safety of Navigation (NAV), at its forty-eighth session


(8 to 12 July 2002), agreed on guidelines for the installation of a Shipborne Automatic Identification
System (AIS) and also agreed that they should be issued for use on a voluntary basis. The
Guidelines describe the shipborne AIS installation matters and are meant to be used by
manufacturers, installers and surveyors to ensure good installation practices.

2 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its seventy-sixth session (2 to 13 December 2002),


concurred with the Sub-Committee's views, approved the Guidelines as set out at annex and
encouraged their use for AIS installation purposes on a voluntary basis.

3 Member Governments are invited to bring the annexed guidelines to the attention of all
concerned.

1 General

The Automatic Identification System (AIS) Class A is defined by IMO and has been made a carriage
requirement by the latest revision of SOLAS chapter V. AIS provides information that may be used
for the navigation of the ship. It is therefore essential that the information provided by AIS be
reliable.

The AIS itself has been standardised by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and the
International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and is subject to type approval. In order to fulfil
the reliability requirements of information exchange, care should be taken to ensure that the AIS is
correctly installed.

This document contains guidelines for manufacturers, installers, yards, suppliers and ship surveyors.
It does not replace documentation supplied by the manufacturer.

The guidelines take into account the following conventions, regulations, instructions and guidelines:

• IMO resolution MSC.90(73) Annex 7, Adoption of amendments to the International


Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended.
• IMO resolution MSC.74(69) Annex 3, Recommendation on performance standards
for AIS.
• ITU Radio Regulations (RR).
• IEC 60092 (series), Electrical Installations on Ships.
• IEC 60533 Electrical and Electronic Installations in Ships – Electromagnetic
Compatibility.

1.1 Survey

Surveys on Convention ships should be carried out in accordance with the rules laid down in
resolution A.746(18) "Survey Guidelines under the harmonised system of survey and certification",
and "Protocol of 1988 relating to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as
amended."

1.2 Documentation

For the AIS installation the following drawings shall be submitted:

• Antenna layout
• AIS arrangement drawing
• Block diagram (interconnection diagram)

An initial installation configuration report should be produced during installation and kept on board.

2 AIS Installation

2.1 Interference to the Ship’s VHF Radiotelephone

The AIS shipborne equipment, like any other shipborne transceiver operating in the VHF maritime
band, may cause interference to a ship’s VHF radiotelephone. Because AIS is a digital system, this
interference may occur as a periodic (e.g. every 20 s) soft clicking sound on a ship’s radiotelephone.
This affect may become more noticeable when the VHF radiotelephone antenna is located near the
AIS VHF antenna and when the radiotelephone is operating on channels near the AIS operating
channels (e.g. channels 27, 28 and 86).

Attention should be paid to the location and installation of different antennas in order to obtain the
best possible efficiency. Special attention should be paid to the installation of mandatory antennas
like the AIS antennas.

2.2 VHF Antenna Installation

2.2.1 Location

Location of the mandatory AIS VHF antenna should be carefully considered. Digital communication
is more sensitive than analogue/voice communication to interference created by reflections in
obstructions like masts and booms. It may be necessary to relocate the VHF radiotelephone antenna
to minimize interference effects.

To minimise interference effects, the following guidelines apply:

• The AIS VHF antenna should have omnidirectional vertical polarisation.

• The AIS VHF antenna should be placed in an elevated position that is as free as
possible with a minimum of 2 metres in horizontal direction from constructions made
of conductive materials. The antenna should not be installed close to any large
vertical obstruction. The objective for the AIS VHF antenna is to see the horizon
freely through 360°.

• The AIS VHF antenna should be installed safely away from interfering high-power
energy sources like radar and other transmitting radio antennas, preferably at least 3
m away from and out of the transmitting beam.

• Ideally there should not be more than one antenna on the same level. The AIS VHF
antenna should be mounted directly above or below the ship’s primary VHF
radiotelephone antenna, with no horizontal separation and with a minimum of 2 m
vertical separation. If it is located on the same level as other antennas, the distance
apart should be at least 10 m.

2.2.2 Cabling

The cable should be kept as short as possible to minimise attenuation of the signal. Double screened
coaxial cables equal or better than RG214 are recommended.

I:\CIRC\SN\227.DOC
SN/Circ.227
ANNEX
Page 4

All outdoor installed connectors on the coaxial cables should be waterproof by design to protect
against water penetration into the antenna cable.

Coaxial cables should be installed in separate signal cable channels/tubes and at least 10 cm away
from power supply cables. Crossing of cables should be done at right angles (90°). Coaxial cables
should not be exposed to sharp bends, which may lead to change the characteristic impedance of the
cable. The minimum bend radius should be 5 times the cable's outside diameter.

2.2.3 Grounding

Coaxial down-leads should be used for all antennas, and the coaxial screen should be connected to
ground at one end.

2.3 GNSS Antenna installation

Class A AIS should be connected to a GNSS antenna.

2.3.1 Location

The GNSS antenna should be installed where it has a clear view of the sky. The objective is to see
the horizon freely through 360° with a vertical observation of 5 to 90° above the horizon. Small
diameter obstructions, such as masts and booms, do not seriously degrade signal reception, but such
objects should not eclipse more than a few degrees of any given bearing.

Locate the antenna at least three meters away from and out of the transmitting beam of high-power
transmitters (S-Band Radar and/or Inmarsat systems). This includes the ship’s own AIS VHF
antenna if it is designed and installed separately.

If a DGNSS system is included or connected to the AIS system, the installation of the antenna should
be in accordance with IEC 61108-4, Ed 1, annex D.

2.3.2 Cabling

To achieve optimum performance, the gain of the antenna pre-amplifier should match the cable
attenuation. The resulting installation gain (pre-amplifier gain - cable attenuation) should be within
0 to 10 dB.

The coaxial cable between the antenna and the AIS shipborne station connector should be routed
directly in order to reduce electromagnetic interference effects. The cable should not be installed
close to high-power lines, such as radar or radio-transmitter lines or the AIS VHF antenna cable. A
separation of one meter or more is recommended to avoid degradation due to RF-coupling. Crossing
of antenna cables should be done at 90° to minimise magnetic field coupling.

All outdoor installed connectors on the coaxial cables should be waterproof by design to protect
against water penetration into the antenna cable.

2.4 Power source

The AIS should be connected to an emergency power source.

2.5 Synchronization

After installation, the AIS should be synchronised properly on UTC and that position information, if
provided, should be correct and valid.

3 Bridge Arrangement

3.1 Minimum Keyboard and Display

The functionality of the Minimum Keyboard and Display (MKD) should be available to the mariner
at the position from which the ship is normally operated. This can be by means of the AIS’ internal
MKD (integrated or remote) or through the equivalent functionality on a separate display system

3.2 Pilot plug

A pilot input/output port is part of an AIS Class A station. A plug connected to this port should be
installed on the bridge near the pilot’s operating position so that a pilot can connect a Personal Pilot
Unit (PPU).

The pilot plug should be configured as follows:

• AMP/Receptacle (Square Flanged (-1) or Free-Hanging (-2)), Shell size 11, 9-pin,
Std. Sex 206486-1/2 or equivalent with the following terminations:

- TX A is connected to Pin 1
- TX B is connected to Pin 4
- RX A is connected to Pin 5
- RX B is connected to Pin 6
- Shield is connected to Pin 9

3.3 Display system

If there is navigational equipment capable of processing and displaying AIS information such as
ECDIS, radar or an integrated system available on board the ship, the AIS Class A mobile system
may be connected to that system via the AIS Presentation Interface (PI). The PI (input/output)
should meet the requirements of IEC 61162-2.

The display system can also include the functionality of an MKD, see 3.1.

3.4 Installation of the BIIT (Built-in Integrity Test) function

The AIS requires that an alarm output (relay) be connected to an audible alarm device or the ships
alarm system, if available.

I:\CIRC\SN\227.DOC
SN/Circ.227
ANNEX
Page 6

Alternatively, the BIIT alarm system may use the alarm messages output on the PI, provided its
alarm system is AIS compatible.

4 Dynamic data input

4.1 External Sensors

The AIS has interfaces (configurable as IEC 61162-1 or 61162-2) for position, heading and rate of
turn (ROT) sensors. In general, sensors installed in compliance with other carriage requirements of
SOLAS Chapter V should be connected to the AIS.1 The sensor information transmitted by AIS
should be the same information being used for navigation of the ship. The interfaces should be
configured as given in annex 3. Interfacing problems might occur if the existing sensors found on
board do not have serial (IEC 61162) outputs.

4.2 Position, COG and SOG

GNSS sensors normally have IEC 61162 outputs for position, COG and SOG suitable for directly
interfacing the AIS. However, it is important to note that:

• The Geodetic Datum of the position data transmitted by the sensor is WGS 84 and
that an IEC 61162 DTM sentence is configured.

• AIS is able to process two reference points for its antenna position, one for external
and one for an internal sensor. If more than one external reference point is used, the
appropriate information needs to be input to the AIS to adjust reference point
information.

4.3 Heading

A compass providing heading information is a mandatory sensor input to the AIS. A converter unit
(e.g. stepper to NMEA) will be needed to connect AIS if the ship’s compass does not provide an IEC
61162 output. Some ships of less than 500 gross tonnage may not carry a compass providing
heading information.

4.4 Rate of Turn

All ships may not carry a Rate-Of-Turn (ROT) Indicator according to resolution A.526(13).
However, if a rate-of-turn indicator is available and it includes an IEC 61162 interface, it should be
connected to the AIS.

If ROT information is not available from a ROT indicator, the direction of turn may (optionally) be
derived from heading information through:

• The compass itself,


• An external converter unit (see paragraph 4.3),
• The AIS itself (see annex 1).

1
Installation of the AIS does NOT establish a need to install additional sensors above carriage requirements.

I:\CIRC\SN\227.DOC
SN/Circ.227
ANNEX
Page 7

4.5 Navigational Status

A simple means should be provided for the operator to input the ship’s navigational status (e.g.
underway using engine, at anchor, not under command, restricted in ability to maneuver, etc)
information into the AIS. The AIS may be connected to the ship's navigational status lights.

5 Static Information

The AIS standards require that certain static, voyage-related, and dynamic information be entered
manually, normally by means of the MKD, or by means of IEC 61162 sentences “SSD” and “VSD”
via the presentation interface if such provisions exist.

5.1 Entered at initial installation of AIS

Information that should be entered at the initial installation of the AIS includes:

• Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number


• IMO vessel number
• Radio call sign
• Name of ship
• Type of ship
• Dimension/reference for position of the electronic position fixing device (EPFD)
antenna (see paragraph 5.2)

Access to MMSI, IMO number and other AIS controls (like power and channel settings) will be
controlled, e.g. by password.

The Call Sign, Name of Ship and Type of Ship should be input to the AIS, either manually using the
MKD or by means of IEC 61162 sentences “SSD” and “VSD” via the PI. Type of Ship information
should be in accordance with the table given in annex 2 (Table 18 from Rec. ITU-R M.1371-1).

For example, a cargo ship not carrying dangerous goods, harmful substances, or marine pollutants;
would use identifier “70”. Pleasure craft would use identifier “37”. Note that those ships whose type
identifier begins with a “3” should use the fourth column of the table.

Depending on the vessel, cargo and/or the navigational conditions, this information may be voyage
related and would therefore need to be changed before beginning or at some time during the voyage.
This is defined by the “second digit” in the fourth column of the table.

5.2 Reference point of position

The AIS stores one “external reference point” for the external GNSS antenna position and one
“internal reference point” if an internal GNSS is to be used as fallback for position reporting. The
locations of theses reference points have to be set during installation using values A, B, C, D; as
described in paragraph 5.3.

The external reference point may also be a calculated common reference position.

I:\CIRC\SN\227.DOC
SN/Circ.227
ANNEX
Page 8

Additionally, the content of the Ship Static Data (“SSD”) sentence on the PI, including the
“reference point for position” is being processed by the AIS, and the AIS’ memory for the “external
reference point” is set in accordance with the content of this “SSD” (e.g. used by an INS).

5.3 Ship’s dimensions

Ship’s dimensions should be entered using the overall length and width of the ship indicated by the
values A, B, C, and D in the following figure.

Ship’s dimensions (A+B and C+D) should be identical when entering internal and external reference
points.

Distance
(m)
reference A 0 – 511 ;
point A 511 =511 m or greater
B 0 – 511 ;
511 = 511 m or greater
C 0 - 63 ;
63 = 63 m or greater
D 0 - 63 ;
63 = 63 m or greater
B

The dimension A should be in the direction of the transmitted heading


information (bow)
C D Reference point of reported position not available, but
dimensions of ship are available: A = C = 0 and B ≠ 0 and D ≠ 0.
Neither reference point of reported position nor dimensions of
ship available: A = B = C = D = 0 (=default)
For use in the message table, A = most significant field,
D = least significant field

In the rare case of an EPFD antenna installed in the portside corner of a rectangular bow, the values
A and C would be zero. Should this be the case, one of these values should be set to 1 in order to
avoid misinterpretation as “not available“ because A=C=0 is used for that purpose.

6 Long-range function

The AIS’ long-range function needs a compatible long-range communication system


(e.g. Inmarsat-C or MF/HF radio as part of the GMDSS).

If this is available, a connection between that communication system and the Class A mobile unit can
be made. This connection is needed to activate the LR function of AIS. Its input/output port should
meet the requirement of IEC 61162-2.

Annex 1

RATE OF TURN

The AIS provides the Rate of Turn (ROT) information to other ships in order to early detect ships
manoeuvres. There are two possible parameters indicating turning of a ship derived from two different
sensors (see Figure 3: ROT sensor input):

• the heading from a GYRO or THD and


• the rotation rate itself from a Rate of Turn-indicator.

If a Rate of Turn Indicator according to resolution A.526(13) is connected, the AIS should use this
information to broadcast both direction and value of turn on the VDL.

If valid ROT or HDG data is available from other external sources (Gyro, INS,...), the AIS should use this
information to broadcast the direction of turn on the VDL, if greater than 5o in 30 s (might also be
implemented as 2.5° in 15 s by configuration); the AIS may also derive ROT information from HDG
internally for that purpose.

If no ROT information is available, the AIS should transmit default values indicating “not
available”. ROT data should not be derived from COG information.
If a ship is not required to carry Turn-Indicator or if external sensor fails, the AIS should react
according to following priorities:

ROT sensor fallback conditions
