Blue Sky Network

Blue Sky Network offers the most advanced Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) by combining its proprietary real-time tracking and satellite communication products with global satellite Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology. This unique solution has been trusted by government and commercial operators in over 50 countries since 2001.

The vessel tracking and marine traffic monitoring system offered by Blue Sky Network (BSN) is quite unique, since clients are not required to invest large amounts of money on terrestrial or satellite AIS transceivers. BSN offers relatively low-cost ship tracking solutions that integrate with SkyRouter, the industry-leading asset tracking system and analytics platform. From SkyRouter, operators can view their fleet, in real-time, along with live Satellite AIS data anywhere on the planet. This creates a live and uncompromising vessel tracking system that is unmatched in the industry.

Blue Sky Network helps clients raise the safety of their operations, save millions of dollars and battle illegal IUU fishing, tag and identify suspect vessels in and out of Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ), avoid collisions in the sea, and with search and rescue (SAR) missions. BSN ecosystem offers global C4I and MCS, location surveillance, marine traffic surveillance, maritime intelligence and more.

More About AIS Vessel Tracking

Traditionally, the maritime Automatic Identification System (AIS) has required a dedicated VHF AIS transceiver that allows operators to track marine traffic on a computer monitor, while also transmitting information about a particular ship to other AIS receivers. This primarily allows ships to view marine traffic in their area, and be seen by that traffic. This method of radio access, however, creates significant technical issues for the reliable reception of AIS transceivers, and only works in the immediate area of the corresponding vessel. In order to significantly increase reliability and situational awareness, the maritime industry is addressing these issues with the implementation of satellite AIS.

Since 2008, multiple companies and government entities have deployed AIS receivers on satellites. This implementation can enable truly global AIS coverage, when augmented with terrestrial AIS. A great strength of satellite AIS is the ease in which it can be integrated with data from other sources, such as radar, optical, ESM and various search and rescue (SAR) tools such as GMDSS, SARSAT, and AMVER.
