The Smartfind S10 AIS Beacon is an innovative manually activated personal safety device which incorporates both AIS (Automatic Identification System) and GPS technology. It is designed to aid the speedy recovery of personnel / crew members who finds themselves in difficulty at sea.
The AIS Beacon target information can be viewed using standard ship AIS equipment, such as Class A and Class B transponders and a wide selection of receive only AIS units. AIS equipped vessels and land based VTS stations within the local vicinity will also have visibility of the S10 AIS beacon signal. Whether displayed on the AIS itself or on a companion plotter or ECDIS screen, the unique alert message will clearly indicate the Smartfind S10’s exact location, range and bearing.
