Ocean Signal rescueME MOB1 AIS Man Overboard Device
In a man overboard situation, the quickest means of rescue comes from your own vessel.
It’s shocking how fast a visual sighting of a man overboard can be lost, even in moderate seas. Your crew needs to be instantly aware of the situation and keep track of your position while the recovery is performed.
Ocean Signal’s rescueME MOB1 provides an AIS transmission to rapidly communicate your position, accurate to a few meters to all AIS receivers enabled plotters in the vicinity.
It can also communicate with any other AIS equipped vessels with a 5 miles radius, depending on conditions.
It’s compatible with the most compact of inflatable life-jackets, and when installed the MOB1 will activate automatically upon inflation, sending the first alert within 15 seconds.
The built-in GPS ensures your exact location is sent to your vessel and any others that may be assisting. The integrated strobe light provides maximum visibility in low light conditions.
* The MOB1 is approved in Canada for AIS only under Industry Canada RSS287. Other counties allow the included DSC function to be utilized. Compatibility: Most modern AIS receivers comply with the standards required to receive MOB transmissions. If using older equipment, recommended that you check compatibility with the equipment manufacturer.
