McMurdo Smartfind S10 AIS Beacon

The McMurdo Smartfind S10 AIS Beacon is an innovative, manually activate, personal safety device which incorporates both AIS and GPS technology. The Smartfind S10 is waterproof, buoyant, and compact, intended for carriage by divers, crew and anyone who works on or carries out leisure activities on the water. When activated, the Smartfind S10 transmits a unique alert signal to the vessel and to all AIS enabled equipment within a typical four mile range. This signals that help is required in a man overboard or lost diver situation. An in-built GPS receiver provides accurate position information, which is frequently updated to assist in quick recovery of persons in difficulty, indicating exact location, distance and bearing. It also features a flashing indicator light, giving a localized visual fix and assisting in attracting attention after nightfall.
