Round the World kudos for McMurdo AIS EPIRB
McMurdo’s SmartFind G8 AIS beacon has received type approval for use on the Cospas Sarsat satellite system being used by the round the world sailor Alex Alley.
Mr Alley will be at TheYachtmarket.com Southampton Boat Show with his 40ft yacht Pixel Flyer and the new SmartFind G8 AIS will also be on display for the first time.
“Peace of mind on the water is essential. Orolia, through its McMurdo and Kannad brands, always make robust, solid and reliable safety kit that makes the most of the latest technological advances including satellite technology to help save lives at sea,” explained Mr Alley.
“I firmly believe you should not take any risks with safety equipment and having the SmartFind G8 AIS on board as I plan my latest sailing challenges is a key part of making sure that I stay safe out on the water.”
Key features of the SmartFind G8 AIS include Quadrotech technology for accelerated rescue, built-in AIS for localised rescue support and multiple GNSS (GPS) sources.
As well as precision technology, the inclusion of AIS in EPIRBs offers additional benefits including reduction of the impact of accidental activations.
