The sMRT AU10 is a dual operating AIS Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) alerting on the 121.5MHz international Search and Rescue (SAR) frequency, while simultaneously transmitting GPS coordinates on AIS.
Automatic activation will alert you of every MOB incident within 2 – 5 seconds via 121.5mhz. GPS position is fixed within 45 seconds and updated every minute via AIS. All vessels within range become an instant search and rescue asset able to track multiple casualties up to 75 miles away. The AU10 is designed to be used only with an sMRT approved lifejacket.
The AU10 must be returned annually (every year) to sMRT for recertification.
