The Kannad Marine SafeLink R10 SRS (Survivor Recovery System), Overall Winner of the 2012 Pittman Innovation Awards, will be displayed at the 2012 Miami International Boat Show, February 16-20 (Miami Beach Convention Center, Electronics Room booth 1642).
The SafeLink R10, which has also been nominated for a National Marine Manufacturers Association Innovation Award at the Miami show, is worn on a lifejacket and activated by sliding off the safety tab and lifting an arming cap to deploy the antenna. The compact, lightweight unit sends alert messages, GPS position and a special identity code directly to AIS receivers within approximately a four mile radius. A unique, built-in, high precision GPS receiver – which updates every 60 seconds – assures accuracy of the transmitted data. With precise location, distance and bearing data, fellow crew members (and nearby AIS- enabled receivers) receive all the information they need to locate the position of the person in difficulty and to enable a speedy recovery.
The R10 SRS should always be fitted to a lifejacket, and a flashing LED light aids location at night. The R10 SRS will transmit continuously for up to 24 hours and has a seven year battery storage life. It is made of ultra durable ABS and is waterproof to five meters.
