Follow up on Man Overboard devices

Posted by on April 27, 2012

Here is one from gCaptain -a quote from the article – “Unlike traditional RADAR SARTS, which are often large and heavy, AIS versions are intended to be attached to a lifejacket and activated by individuals in difficulty at sea. They use both GPS and AIS (Automatic Identification System) technology to send structured alert messages containing precise location information to nearby AIS equipment vessels within a radius of about 4 nautical miles. In a man overboard situation, chances of finding and recovering the casualty can be greatly increased, thanks to information given these units which can display precise bearing and distance to the man in the water in real time.”

And a posting from PanBo – I use this web page as a resource for all marine electronics. Very cool site.


And one from McMurdo Marine.


Security and safety go hand in hand. It’s all about protecting yourself, your vessel and the people onboard from harm.
