The Weatherdock easyRESCUE is a personal AIS-SART.
In the event of man overboard or when deployed from a liferaft, the built in GPS rapidly acquires an exact position. It then repeatedly transmits this position on the VHF AIS channels as an AIS-SART distress message.
All AIS plotters in range will give an alarm signal and display the exact position of the casualty. The distance and course to steer are available on your own vessel and any AIS equipped vessels in range.

The easyRESCUE is a portable battery-powered AIS transmitter with an integrated GPS receiver.
The device is intended for use in life rafts or life boats. The easyRESCUE operates as an AIS-SART (AIS Search-And-Rescue-Transmitter) and it can be activated in case of distress at sea. All surrounding vessels with AIS stations are able to receive the position of the easyRESCUE via VHF. The range depends on the height of the transmitter's antenna above sea level. The range is approx. 10-20 nautical miles, if the height of easyRESCUE’s antenna is 1 m above sea level (e.g. mounted on a life raft). If the easyRESCUE is directly above the sea level, the range is approx. 7-12 nautical miles assuming that the receiving antenna is at a height of 15 m (top of a mast).
