AIS basics - newbie
« on: 07 November, 2010, 09:57:05 pm »

I need the basics about AIS.
my company have an AIS antenna we got from digital seas.
Are all AIS sites connected to an universal AIS server, or does every site have its own "parallel" AIS?
Can i use the same AIS antenna to send feeds to more than one system?

I did not find any e-mails on the site so i can not ask for a sample of a NMEA feed packet. I would like to develop an application to monitor port arrivals instead of vessels.

Where can i get a sample to see how it is composed and what can i do with it?
