McMurdo Ltd announced that it is launching the brand new Kannad Marine Safelink AIS SART. Designed for the commercial mariner and recreational boater alike, the Safelink Automatic Identification System Search and Rescue Transmitter (AIS SART) is a manual deployment survivor location device intended for use on liferafts or survival craft. It meets IMO SOLAS requirements and is an alternative to a traditional Radar SART.
Rugged and compact, the Safelink AIS SART is easy to operate and deploy. It transmits target survivor information to vessels in the vicinity. The alert messages include GPS position information and serialised identity number. Once activated the Safelink AIS SART transmits continually for a minimum of 96 hours. A built-in high precision GPS provides accurate position information to assist in quick recovery of survivors.
The Safelink AIS SART is a portable device packed inside a quick release carry off bag for quick evacuation. Waterproof to 10 metres and buoyant, the Safelink AIS SART also has a long life 6 year replaceable battery. Whether wall mounted in the ship’s bridge or packed inside a survival craft the highly visible and buoyant carry case affords maximum protection.
