In an emergency, the rescue transmitters of the easyRESCUE-PRO product family send an AIS telegram and also a DSC distress signal with the current GPS position. The units have a transmission range of up to 10 nm, are fully self-floatable, send after automatic or manual activation over 24 hours and have a very handy size. In addition, the devices have a SOLAS approval. The new easyRESCUE-PRO3 also sends a 121.5 MHz signal in addition to AIS telegram and DSC distress signal.
With the position transmitter vmsTRACK-PRO, ships and moving objects can be located and monitored in real time via FM technology. The small, portable device transmits the GPS position, curse and speed of the object to the base station over a given time interval via FM radio frequencies. The base station requires a tuned receiver unit. Weatherdock develops individual solutions, adapted to the respective requirements. Please contact us.
