Both RADAR and AIS instruments are precious aids in preventing the risk of collisions at sea. The way they work is based on totally different technologies. A RADAR transmits radio signals, receives their echo through a rotating antenna processed, and shows them on the instrument display. An AIS transmits and receives a vessel's navigation information on dedicated VHF channels and calculates the potential collision risk.
