MEOSAR Compatible® for enhanced detection and location performance, the G8 range includes an industry first; a four-frequency EPIRB, combining the global alerting of 406 MHz with the localised locating and tracking power of AIS.
The award winning G8 AIS is the first EPIRB to have standard 406MHz, 121MHz & GPS capabilities AND include AIS for localised rescue. This combination is a result of new technology but also new attitudes to AIS as a search and rescue tool, plus the realisation that accelerated alert detection and location accuracy will save even more lives. This technology partnership will also help reduce demands on the search & rescue authorities as it should help vessel owners detect and resolve accidental activations through visibility of AIS signals.
The world’s most powerful EPIRBS, driving accelerated rescue times via:
Faster alert detection on the 406 MHz frequency through our MEOSAR compatibility
The world’s first QUADROTECH® EPIRB, with four search and rescue frequencies, the SmartFind G8 AIS supports the Alert, Locate, Tracking and Recovery elements of search and rescue
Greater location accuracy by receiving GNSS coordinates from a wider range of satellite onstellations
World’s first convergence of 406 and AIS, combining the global alerting of 406 MHz with the localised locating and tracking power of AIS
The only EPIRB manufacturer that also builds and supports the Cospas-Sarsat ecosystems infrastructure, making the benefits of MEOSAR a reality
