AISLink Personal Man Overboard Beacon

Overboard situations can be a little less hair-raising with the Automatic Identification System (AIS) Man Overboard Beacon (MOB). The AISLink features integrated Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and GPS technology, so you can quickly reach out for help when you need it most. Unlike a personal locator beacon, which signals orbiting search and rescue satellites, AISLink sends an alert message within seconds to all local vessels with an AIS receiver and/or AIS-enabled plotter. Plus, the DSC alarm on your vessel’s VHF radio can also be signaled to make first responders aware of what’s going on.

Features and Benefits:

  • Dual alert via AIS and DSC

  • Simple life jacket integration

  • Alerts AIS equipped vessels up to 5 miles (4.3 NM) away
  • 24+ hours operational life and 7 Year battery life
  • Ultra bright LED strobe light
