Carmanah Partners With Shine Micro to Combine Solar-Powered Marine Lanterns With AIS Technology
Solar technology provider Carmanah Technologies Corporation (TSX: CMH) has partnered with Shine Micro Inc. to add an automatic identification system (AIS) capability to its line of stand-alone solar-powered LED (light emitting diode) marine lanterns.
Widely used by ships and vessel traffic services (VTS) to identify and locate vessels, AIS technology enables ships to automatically exchange a range of navigational data including position, course, speed and proximity to other nearby ships, VTS stations, and AIS-equipped navigational buoys. According to Ted Lattimore, CEO, Carmanah Technologies, this partnership presents a valuable opportunity for both businesses and their customers.
