About us

Nauticast GmbH is a company specialized in the field of maritime AIS technology. The product range covers class A and class B AIS-devices and corresponding software solutions. Our specialized team handles sales consulting, services and repairs as well as in-house development and software programming.

With a global network of partners we provide comprehensive service and state-of-the-art technical solutions to our customers.


Ever since the pioneering days of AIS-technology in the early 2000s, Nauticast AIS devices played a major role in the maritime market. After extensive research and development the "X-Pack DS" Class A - AIS transponder received BSH Wheelmark Approval in 2003.  The X-Pack became a quasi-standard for many ship operators and with the large installed base of still operational units Nauticast maintains an important role, both technologically and commercially. Nauticast GmbH now builds on a market presence of more than 14 years in the maritime industry, a position which allows us grow the many long lasting customer relationships and seek technological innovations in the AIS field.
