Introducing the world’s smallest AIS MOB Personal Locator Beacon with integrated DSC – the RescueMe MOB1 from Ocean Signal.
The best chance of rapid rescue if you fall overboard comes from your own vessel. Your crew needs to be immediately aware of the incident and keep track of your position whilst recovery is carried out. Even in the most moderate of seas it is alarming how quickly a visual sighting of a man overboard can be lost.
The RescueMe MOB1 is compatible with most inflatable lifejackets, simply clipping onto the oral inflation tube and is activated by a wrap-around pull lanyard that triggers the arming cover and releasing the antenna as soon as your lifejacket inflates, sending the first alert within 15 seconds.
The RescueMe MOB1 communicates with the vessel you have been separated from as well as any other vessels in the vicinity (up to 5-miles range dependent on conditions).
Once activated your MOB1 will transmit an alert to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled chart plotting devices on any vessel in the vicinity. The integrated GPS built into the MOB1 ensures your precise location is transmitted along with the alert.
An additional unique feature of the RescueMe MOB1, is its ability to transmit a DSC signal** to the DSC alarm on your vessels VHF radio. This audible DSC alarm will immediately alert your crew to the MOB situation, in many cases even before you have noticed the AIS MOB alert on your GPS Chart Plotter.
(**your own vessels MMSI number must be programmed into the RescueMe MOB1 beforehand, this can be done by the owner using the simple programming interface downloaded free from the Ocean Signal Ltd website)
Neat and compact the Ocean Signal MOB1 is 30% smaller than most other PLBs and also features an integrated strobe light that enhances your visibility in low light conditions.
Compatibility: Most modern GPS chart plotters and charting software have AIS capability (but may require a separate AIS receiver to display AIS data) and nearly all DSC VHF radios comply with the standards required to receive MOB transmissions. It is however recommended that you check the compatibility of your chart plotting device & VHF radio with the equipment manufacturers, especially if you are using older models of equipment.
