So, how does it work?
You might be wondering how we can accurately track a ship’s position. The answer lies in a technology called the Automatic Identification System, or AIS. This global system is used on ships and by vessel traffic services to identify and locate vessels, providing information about their course and speed.
Here’s the simplified version of how it works: Each ship, including MSC Opera, is equipped with an AIS transceiver. This device periodically broadcasts important information about the vessel, like its identification, position, course, and speed.
This data is then captured by AIS receivers worldwide – often mounted on places like lighthouses, buoys, or other ships – and is subsequently relayed to an online tracking service. This lets us present you with a real-time location of MSC Opera directly on the map below.
Just as a side note, AIS isn’t just about tracking. It’s a powerful safety system that helps prevent collisions at sea by providing information that is automatically updated at short, regular intervals. We will have a full article on this soon!
