The best chance of rapid rescue if you fall overboard comes from your own vessel. Your crew needs to be immediately aware of the incident and keep track of your position whilst recovery is carried out. Even in the most moderate seas it is alarming how quickly a visual sighting of a man overboard can be lost.
Once activated your MOB1 will transmit an alert to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled plotters in the vicinity. The integrated GPS ensures precise location is sent to your vessel and any others that may be assisting. An additional feature of the MOB1, is its ability to activate the DSC alarm on your vessels VHF, alerting your crew to the situation.
Most modern AIS plotters and DSC VHF comply with the standards required to receive the MOB transmissions. It is recommended that you check compatibility with the equipment manufacturer, particularly if you are using older equipment.
The integrated strobe light ensures maximum visibility in low light conditions.
