Why Boaters Need the Automatic Identification System or AIS
On October 18, 2014 I gave a presentation at the United States Power Squadron District 17 Meeting The presentation describes AIS,the various types, and how it is used to prevent accidents on inland waters. I also talked about the Moonstruck accident on the Tenn-Tom Waterway which might have been prevented with AIS. The presentation also covers how AIS differs from radar, and the importance of proper etiquette..
