Real-Time AIS Data Services

Boost your business with live AIS API or raw NMEA data feeds. Get access to constantly-updating vessel position data, ship details, port calls and voyage information, arrival times and more.

Processing thousands of AIS messages every second, all gathered by terrestrial AIS stations or satellites, we operate one of the biggest AIS networks in the world. Real-time AIS data is a valuable source of information for maritime awareness systems and analytics projects. Our AIS feeds will boost your apps or integrate directly into your software systems.

The live AIS data is tailored to customer requirements and is provided in different formats via API (in XML or JSON format) or as a direct TCP/UDP stream ensuring a minimum latency.



Access to real-time AIS position data along with voyage information, port calls, expected port arrivals and vessel particulars provided in XML and JSON format

Raw AIS Data

Raw AIS Data

Real-time AIS position data for specific area provided in raw format (all NMEA sentences) as a stream via TCP/IP or UDP connection


Processing millions of raw NMEA messages every day our system decodes the raw AIS data and delivers it in a well-known XML or JSON format via our API.

The live AIS API offers a set of AIS data related services that can be used to programatically customize subsets of data for your visualizations.

Vessel Positions

Returns the latest AIS position of any vessel along with its voyage information and particulars.


Fleet Positions

Provides the latest AIS position for a predefined list of vessels including voyage information and particulars.


Regional Zone

AIS position data for all vessels in a predefined geographical area as well as voyage information and particulars.


Port Calls

Indicates all ports visited by specific vessel/s or all vessels that have visited specific port/s including AIS position and voyage data.


Expected Port Arrivals

Returns vessels expected to arrive at a specific port along with voyage information and vessel particulars.



Vessel Particulars

Provides basic information, technical details and all particulars for a specific vessel or a fleet of vessels.


Full technical details on the API use is on your disposal at the AIS API Documentation site.

Raw AIS Data (NMEA)

Raw AIS data streaming is the native way of distribution of real-time AIS data with a minimum latency. The data format conforms to AIS specification and data sentences may be processed by all software systems designed to operate directly with AIS hardware equipment (AIS receivers, transponders or base stations).

The raw AIS data feed is provided via TCP/IP connection or UDP stream in compliance with client requirements. The feed may be filtered by area, AIS source or message type. The position reports can be downsampled in order to reduce the required bandwidth between the client and our data center.

Data access is provided on a subscription basis and the applicable fee thereof depends on the size of the area and the vessel traffic density.
