This diploma thesis aims to study the necessity of more extensive use of automatic identification systems (AIS) on their contribution in maritime safety (navigation, search and rescue), fighting of cross-border threats (piracy and armed robbery, counter-terrorism, SUA treaties and unlawful acts, stowaways, drug smuggling, human trafficking). The role of IMO in the maritime safety as well as the threats in the marine environment and the need of their suppression are addressed in this thesis, as they are presented in resolutions of IMO, in the ISPS code, in the convention of SOLAS and other amendments,statements and bulletins of MSC (Maritime Security Council). The automatic identification systems (AIS), the carriage requirements for shipborne navigational systems and equipment and the potentials it can have in extensive use are analyzed. In conclusion, it is demonstrated that more extensive use of the AIS system leads to the acquisition of integrated maritime surveillance which contributes to maritime safety and the syppression of cross-border threats.
