A vessel traffic service (VTS) system is a marine traffic monitor and control system established by public safety or security authorities in order to forestall a maritime accidents such ship collision and stranding. Hence the VTS system always collects target data containing location and velocity of vessels within its purview using multi sensors, mainly radars built in several areas and AIS transponders installed in vessels. However, the collected target data can be incorrect due to measurement errors, failure of sensors, bad weather conditions, and so on. In this manuscript, we propose a multi-track integration system (MTIS) which can generate a relatively correct track information via the fusions of the collected target data and then we prove that the MTIS provides more accurate track information than its original target data, through experiments using a test vessel.
