The article features the new Automatic Identification System (AIS), an electronic system for commercial shipping safety, of the U.S. Navy submarines that would give them an additional passive surveillance capacity. The shipboard AIS improves ship collision avoidance during ports navigation and narrow water ways, and provides submarines a means to passively and positively identify and track a ship in its locality.
