This work meeting is divided into 2 sessions. The first session was reports from consortium members, then research that was done last year, and research that will be done this year. In the second session, 4 workshops were held, namely a ship channeling workshop, protecting sea areas, coral reefs and small islands, antenna technology from Udayana University to expand coverage, and closed with a hardware technology workshop on making AIS itself from the Madura State Polytechnic.



With the Automatic Identification System (AIS) research consortium working meeting activities, it is hoped that it can improve research performance, research results, and benefits to society, because by carrying out collaborations like this one can complement one another and share experiences. "The hope, of course, research collaboration and so on can produce solutions that we will face together." added Dr. Ir. I Made Oka Widyantara, S.T., M.T., IPU, ASEAN Eng as chairman of the AIS consortium.
