Ocean Signal MOB1; The World’s Smallest Personal Locating AIS Man-Over-Board Device With Integrated DSC
Lambda Marine receives multiple orders for Ocean Signal MOB1 Man-Over-Board BeaconsLambda Marine, a maritime ICT system integrator and Distributor, based in the UAE, recently received multiple orders to supply Ocean Signal MOB1 Man-Over-Board Beacons; the World’s Smallest Personal Locating AIS Man-Over-Board Device With Integrated DSC.
The MOB1 is intended to be installed within a life-jacket and will activate automatically on inflation, sending 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) using AIS and VHF-DSC technology. In an emergency the MOB1 rapidly communicates your position, accurate to a few meters, back to the vessel and to near-by vessels, plus provides a 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.
The MOB1 is compatible with even the most compact inflatable life-jackets and provides you with maximum safety and security in case of falling over board.
