filling the ais tassie gaps

AIS is a modern marvel, it provides automatic information on nearby vessels. It can also provide, via the internet, a track on vessels, which can be used by SAR and security authorities to locate vessels.However, to provide this remote information a vessel needs to be in range of a base station and these, in remote Australia including Tasmania’s west coast, are rare.
