The latest product to hit the shelves in the McMurdo range distributed by Crewsaver. The Smartfind S20 SRS (Survival Recovery System) has been specifically designed as a personal AIS search and rescue locating device to quickly and efficiently locate and retrieve a missing crew member. It is compatible with existing AIS enabled chart plotters and onboard navigation systems providing a reliable and cost effective solution for crew safety.
How Smartfind S20 works: The S20 is activated in an emergency crew recovery situation. An alert message is transmitted to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled chart plotters within a 4 mile radius (typical). An AIS SART alert icon marks the survivor’s location; precise target survivor information including GPS position becomes viable when the chart plotter cursor is positioned over the icon; Smartfind provides exact location, distance and bearing to locate person(s) in need of assistance
'The Smartfind S20 is a vital piece of kit for anyone who plans to venture offshore. Small, compact and easy to attach to most life jackets, it’s your saving device in an emergency situation.'- Greg O'Brien, Sales and Marketing Manager at Crewsaver.
