ACR / Nauticast-B AIS-300 Specifications (.pdf)
Unlike receive-only AIS devices which do not transmit vessel information to surrounding traffic, the Nauticast-B system allows you to virtually participate in neighboring vessels' maneuvering activities for collision avoidance. Announce your identity, position, speed and course-over-ground to oncoming traffic allowing for increased security that you will be seen in low visibility conditions.
Avoid not being seen because of extreme weather conditions or busy vessel traffic environments. Generate a safety distress message to surrounding AIS vessels, basestations, and SAR teams. All in all, it is a horizon expanding experience; especially in combination with an electronic chart system.
Because each ACR / Nauticast-B AIS-300 transponder can only be programmed once with your personal MMSI number and other information, these units are NOT CANCELABLE or RETURNABLE once your order has been placed.
