EPIRB PRO-5 Float Free

Pro-5 Float Free Satellite Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) measures up with the IMO requirements for COSPAS-SARSAT system and is a mandatory item in the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress Safety System). When a distress beacon is activated, it transmits a distress radio signal that is detectable by satellites. The beacon is brought into action automatically to transmit distress signal (position and identity) at depth of 4 meters or more. This equipment guarantees high-speed identification by means of the unique code of each beacon, positioning to within one nautical mile with short response time.

AIS-SART Musson-502A

Our company has developed completely new maritime safety equipment AIS-SART Musson-502A, which is mandatory item to be installed on ship. The AIS-SART Musson-502A operates in A and B VHF channels of AIS (automatic identification system), instead of standard search and rescue radar transponder operating in 9.2-9.5GHz. The new AIS-SART fully corresponds to IMO, SOLAS and GMDSS requirements. AIS-SART Musson 502A uses the built-in GPS module to send messages with coordinates of distress to near vessels' AIS.

Hydrostatic Release Unit G-5
