FA-70 Class B AIS Transponder

The FA-70 offers accurate information exchange that can be utilized for collision avoidance

FURUNO’s FA-70 class-B AIS transponder receives navigation data from AIS-equipped vessels nearby that can be utilized to aid in safe navigation. Also, the FA-70 transmits own ship’s information to the vessels around, which also aids in collision avoidance.
