The AIS-SART is a self-contained radio device used to locate a survival craft or distressed vessel by sending updated position reports using a standard Automatic Identification System (AIS) class-A position report. The position and time synchronization of the AIS-SART are derived from a built in GNSS receiver.
We also offer programmable AIS-SART products that can be used in fisheries positioning, unmanned vehicles and any application that needs to be located.
The specification (IEC 61097-14 Ed 1.0) for AIS-SART was developed by the IEC’s TC80 AIS work group. AIS-SART was added to the GMDSS regulations effective January 1, 2010.
