Automatic Information Ship
A system for tracking commercial shipping. Ships broadcast digital information regarding their name, home Port, cargo, destination, and other particulars which can then be displayed as an overlay on RADAR when tracking them as a target vessel.

Used largely in VTS systems and by Coast Guard stations.
