Marine Equipment and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS)

VTS is a marine traffic monitoring system established by harbour or port authorities, similar to air traffic control for aircraft. Typical VTS systems use radar, (CCTV), VHF radiotelephony and Automatic Identification System AIS to keep track of vessel movements and provide navigational safety in a limited geographical area.

The VTS traffic image is compiled and collected by means of advanced sensors such as radar, AIS direction finding, CCTV and VHF or other co-operative systems and services. A modern VTS integrates all of the information in to a single operator working environment for ease of use and in order to allow for effective traffic organization and communication.
