The Vessel-ID System investigation on the International Space Station demonstrated the ability for a space-based radio receiver to track a ship’s Automatic Identification System (AIS) signal, the marine equivalent of the air traffic control system. Since being turned on in 2010, Vessel-ID has been able to relay more than 400,000 ship position reports from more than 22,000 ships in a single day, proving a quantum leap in the ship tracking ability of coast guards around the world. This ability, coupled with multiple AIS tracking satellites launched since, is already making travel among the waves safer for thousands of ships around the globe.

Throughout the remainder of 2014, NASA is flying a series of airborne research campaigns – from the North Pole to the South Pole and many points in between – to take a closer look at U.S. air quality, hurricanes in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, and the impact of climate change on Earth’s polar regions. NASA’s airborne campaigns complement observations from Earth-observing satellites to improve our understanding of how our planet is changing.
