Axys Technologies has announced the addition of AIS vessel tracking to their wave buoy series, Triaxys. The SRT Chronos Aid to Navigation (AtoN) AIS is an IALA and IEC compliant device that broadcasts buoy position and weather information to local vessel traffic.
This new feature both protects the buoy from collision by notifying vessels of its whereabouts and can also act as an additional telemetry method, providing data within radio range. The Triaxys AIS implementation supports both message 21 data, which displays buoy information and position data on the AIS channel of passing vessels, and message 8 data transmission.
