Commercial Vessel or Leisure Craft AIS MOB Device.
An AIS Man Overboard (MOB) device is designed to be carried by individual crew members and used in the event of a Man Overboard situation or other personal emergency. When activated it transmits an AIS MOB message containing your position and ID via AIS (Automatic Identification System). The transmission will also be detected by the all AIS equipped vessels within range. This information can be displayed on a chartplotter or ECDIS display if interfaced with an AIS receiver/transceiver.
As the AIS MOB device includes an inbuilt GPS receiver, your current location is also transmitted, dramatically reducing the time taken to locate and rescue you even in poor visibility. Our AIS MOB devices feature a flashing light to help rescuers pinpoint your precise location in the water.
Whether you’re a commercial vessel, a fishing trawler or leisure craft, an AIS MOB device should be considered essential safety equipment for every member of the crew working on deck
