The new AIS-MOBunit from True Heading is a combined AIS MOB/DSC Maritime Survivor Locating Device (MSLD).
It is developed to increase the efficiency of Man over Board emergency alerting to the vicinity according to all existing standards by starting broadcasting within seconds after activation.
Base of this device is the world’s first AIS MOB unit with full automatic activation. Goal of the AIS-MOB is to fasten-up the alerting of the “next to the MOB” vessels. The combination of these two most effective communication ways will be the result which probably can make the difference between saving or losing a life at sea.
Thanks to the palm size of the AIS-MOB, the unit is ready for easy installation and instant usage with every kind of automatic life jacket, regardless of model or manufacturer. The bright red LED flare on the AIS-MOB ensures high visibility for miles.
