The VHF channels 87B and 88B are commonly used and in addition there are local AIS frequencies. of buoys every 3 min. VTS center The VTS center transmits a command on frequency assignment. COG.

Thus. and in particular leisure craft. around bends and behind islands. including in some circumstances. remember that the AIS may not be giving a complete or correct “picture” of shipping traffic in their vicinity. The use of the AIS does not negate the responsibility of the OOW to comply with all collision regulation requirements. viii . When using the AIS for anti-collision purposes it is important to remember that the AIS is an additional source of navigation information. Once again. The OOW should also be aware that AIS fitted on other ships as a mandatory carriage requirement might be switched off by professional judgment of the master.Not all ships carry AIS The Officer of the Watch (OOW) should always be aware that other ships. The prudent navigator uses all aids available to navigate the ship. Erroneous information Erroneous information implies a risk to other ships as well as your own. Poorly configured or calibrated sensors might lead to incorrect information being transmitted. and some coastal shore stations including Vessel Traffic Service centers might not be fitted with AIS. especially the maintaining of a proper look-out. fishing boats and warships. users are therefore cautioned to always bear in mind that information provided by AIS may not be giving a complete or correct “picture” of shipping traffic in their vicinity. Use of AIS in collision avoidance As an anti-collision aid the AIS has the following advantages over radar: • Information provided in near real-time • Capable of instant presentation of target course alterations • Not subject to target swap • Not subject to target loss in clutter • Not subject to target loss due to fast maneuvers • Able to detect ships within VHF/FM coverage. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that all information entered into the system is correct and up to date. It does not replace other navigational systems.

This equipment contains complex modules in which fault diagnosis and repair down to component level are not practical (IMO A.694(17)/8.3.1. Only some discrete components are used. FURUNO Electric Co., Ltd. believes identifying these components is of no value for shipboard maintenance; therefore, they are not listed in the manual.
