Automatic Identification System (AIS)

The Norwegian Coastal Administration is responsible for the national AIS network. AIS enable Norwegian authorities to have a continuous overview of vessel traffic on the Norwegian coast and at sea.

  • The National AIS Network

    The national AIS network, AIS Norway, consists of shore- and satellite-based AIS. It is operated by the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) and is an important tracking tool for Norwegian authorities and the national emergency response.
  • Access to AIS data

    The Norwegian Coastal Administration provides AIS data in real time, either as raw data or online traffic information displayed in charts. The Norwegian AIS network has an open and a closed component. Data is accessed in both cases via a standard internet connection.
