Archipelago coverage ranges
Northern islands coverage range
NAUTICAL LOG found the AIS Project was most interesting as funding came from the Dutch Postcode Lottery specifically for this project. The Sea Shepherds will use this funding to build a network of AIS repeaters throughout the archipelago. These will be solar powered fully self-supporting at eight (8) fixed locations as well as aboard the GNPS vessels. All information is sent to the GNPS control centre and displayed on a monitor thus all vessels can be tracked. Further the GNPS will provide AIS transceivers at rental cost to vessels entering the Park boundries if they are not equipped. Some photos above show the coverage envisioned.
