Thanks Bjørn and Phil.

I understand the IMO logic and military ships.
I use to track vessels and they sometimes show NZ and Australian frigates in the Port of Fremantle, which suggests that they have AIS (and a MMSI No.?). They do not show that same vessels consistently and certainly not transiting to and from the local naval base.

What I have noticed is military ship photos from a number of nations posted on with MMSI numbers.
However, if a ship is not already posted there you cannot find the MMSI. The same is true for digital seas. I haven’t tried using vessel tracker yet but will try them out too.

Cheers … Bob

Hi Faith J,

I am happy to show you the sites I use around Fremantle.
All are readily accessible to the public and most you can wander around on to improve the view of a ship, lighting etc.
Ian has mentioned 3 below. There are two more that I also use occasionally.

I would also be happy to drive you around the moles (there are no busses there).

If you are interested, email me and I will pass on my contact details here.


Help and Advice / MMSI or IMO Numbers for Military Vessels
« on: May 23, 2011, 11:30:37 AM »
I am trying to find a site that will give me MMSI and/or IMO numbers for Royal Australian Navy and US Coast Guard ships. I have seen a number of RAN and USCG ships posted on different sites and they have this information.

I use Equasis, Australian Maritime Safety Authority and International Telecommunications Union sites as the main sources for MMSI and IMO information. They do not help me access military ships.
I have also explored RAN and USCG sites for this information.

Can anyone direct me to a source  where I can get the information for military vessels?
