Operational mission of AIS messages collection.
Upgraded Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver for improved ship detection rates. Given the great success of AISSat-1, the completion of the AISSat-2 satellite, and the need for at least three operational space-based AIS assets, Norway initiated the AISSat-3 project. All three AIS satellites working in tandem will increase coverage, shorten revisit times, and provide natural redundancy for space-based AIS observation under direct control by Norway.
