Please see my Services page for details on my AIS solutions.
I have a dedicated AIS reciever and antenna that are on 24×7 and connected to a dedicated machine that catalogs and logs the data to various places. I submit my data to mulitple online locations that provide user interfaces into the data for folks to browse.
I also upload my data every 60 seconds to a dedicated webserver I own.
My setup is as follows:
- Location – near the top of Queen Anne hill in Seattle, WA, USA with direct views of Elliott Bay and surrounding waters
- Shakespeare AIS antenna (model number forthcoming) mounted outside on the 2nd floor of building
- Serial connection to a Windows XP system running a low-noise, low heat CPU, and an SSD hard drive for long life and reliability
- All above systems on UPS and behind firewall, with dual Internet connections, nightly backups to offsite storage
