Indonesia has an almost 100,000 km coastline with a very busy shipping and maritime activity. To regulate ship traffic, the government relies on Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) and Automatic Identification System (AIS). VTS functions like Air Traffic Control (ATC) in commercial flight traffic control, which relies on radio conversations to communicate between VTS officers and the ship's captain. While AIS uses transponders mounted on ships to send ship position data which are then displayed virtually in the form of ship icons. However, both VTS and AIS do not display the real picture of the ship's description. VTS, AIS Receiver and Electronic Chart Display Information System (ECDIS only presented the ship's movement through radio voice and the ship's icon on the monitor. With Reporting Interval from 2 seconds until 180 seconds. It is because AIS is designated to send data every 2 - 180 seconds depending on vessel moving status. But within the reporting interval 180 seconds, the condition of the ship can change a lot. This is the motivation of this paper was written to propose monitoring vessel traffic through an aerial flying camera that can monitor real ships with cinematic class video quality in real-time because the video latency can be achieved faster than 10 milliseconds. The research is conduct by simultaneous monitoring the marine traffic through web and launching the flying camera at the same time and place. And the results is very surprises, because many ship found not AIS detected compare to flying camera results video.
