MOB (man-over-board) - Position directly on the chart plotter / PC connected AIS receiver
easyRESCUE is a personal AIS transmitter with a built-in GPS. easyRESCUE has a size were it fits in the pocket of a life jacket so it can easily be activated in an emergency situation. If a crew member falls overboard and has an easyRESCUE on itself there is only one thing to do – get the easyRESCUE activated. Within a few minutes it will send out an AIS symbol (MOB) which can be read on chart plotters/radars on your own and on nearby ships. Now it is possible for all vessels within the range to seek for the distressed (the MOB position) and help rescuing the distressed.
What do I need?
On board of own ship: an AIS transmitter or transceiver connected to a chart plotter or a PC. With an Easy Rescue in the life jacket or in the life raft you will be a step ahead. For operation the cover should be pushed aside and then pull the antenna out and push “ON”. Occasionally test the GPS-function and the condition of the battery by pushing “TEST”.
