Stored in a quick release carry off bag, the rugged S5 AIS SART is buoyant and waterproof to a depth of 10m. When activated, the S5 transmits an alert message along with your ID number and current GPS location which will trigger an alarm on all AIS equipped vessels within VHF range. The inbuilt GPS provides accurate location information to rescuers enabling them to quickly locate you. The non-hazardous battery has a six year storage life and enables the S5 to transmit continuously for in excess of 96hrs.
The S5 AIS SART is easy to operate and deploy and the high visibility buoyant carry off bag can be wall mounted or packed inside the survival craft. It features a shoulder strap making it easy to carry in the event of an emergency evacuation.
