AIS MOB Device Ocean Signal MOB1
The world’s smallest AIS MOB device with integrated
DSC – the rescueME MOB1. The MOB1 is compatible
with both inflatable lifejackets and suits.
The MOB1 may be installed within the lifejacket
and may then activate automatically on inflation.
Installed on suit the beacon will have to be activated
manually. After activation the unit will send the first
alert within 15 seconds.
The MOB1 communicates with the vessel you have
been separated from and other vessels in the vicinity
(up to 5 miles range dependent on conditions). To
alert rescue authorities, an alternative product the
rescueME PLB1 communicates directly via a dedicated
search and rescue satellite network.
In an emergency rescueME MOB1 provides 2 methods
of rapidly communicating your position, accurate
to a few metres, back to the vessel, plus providing
visual indication via its built in strobe light.
The best chance of rapid rescue if you fall overboard
comes from your own vessel. Your crew needs to be
immediately aware of the incident and keep track of
your position whilst recovery is carried out. Even in
the most moderate of seas it is alarming how quickly
a visual sighting of a man overboard can be lost.
Once activated your MOB1 will transmit an alert to all
AIS receivers and AIS enabled plotters in the vicinity.
The integrated GPS ensures precise location is sent
to your vessel and any others that may be assisting.
An additional feature of the MOB1, is its ability to
activate the DSC alarm on your vessels VHF, alerting
your crew to the situation.
Compatibility: Most modern AIS plotters and DSC
VHF comply with the standards required to receive
MOB transmissions. It is however, especially if you
are using older equipment, recommended that you
check compatibility with the equipment manufacturer.
