The Furuno FA50 is a Class B AIS capable of exchanging navigation and ship data between one’s own ship and other ships or coastal stations. The FA50 consists of a transponder unit with GPS antenna. Also included is AIS viewer software from MaxSea, which allows basic display of AIS targets on a PC. The transponder contains a VHF transmitter, interface, communication processor, internal GPS receiver, and two TDMA receivers on two parallel VHF channels. The internal GPS is a 12-channel all-in-view receiver with differential capability. It also gives position, course over ground, and speed over ground (COG/SOG) readings.
