Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology in general and highlights the growing availability of and potential applications of AIS data for performance evaluation of navigation projects. In particular, archived AIS data may be used in a variety of investigations and designs as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) executes its civil works mission. Uses range in complexity from simple reconnaissance and visualization of parameter-based queries to complex analysis of vessel behavior coupled with environmental input such as tidal elevations and wave conditions. Additional uses for modeling and engineering design are currently being investigated through the Navigation Systems (NavSys) research and development program as well as the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP). An AIS data analysis package being developed jointly by these two programs is also described.
