Secure Airborne Automatic Identification System
The L3 Henschel PROTEC™-MA Airborne Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponder provides maritime patrol and search and rescue (SAR) aircraft with the ability to track and identify AIS-equipped vessels over a dedicated VHF datalink. AIS is a key component of any maritime ISR network and offers maritime authorities the ability to better coordinate air and sea search and rescue, surveillance and interdiction operations.
The PROTEC™-MA AIS is fully compliant with the STEDS-EAIS protocol standard adopted by the U.S. DoD and DHS and offers an FIPS-approved encryption method for secure position reporting and messaging. The PROTEC™-MA AIS is a fully compliant AIS transceiver and has been designed in accordance with DO-160E environmental test standards.
