Due out in early December 2014 the rescumeME MOB1 is an exciting new addition to the yachting safety world.
The worlds smallest AIS Man OverBoard system with integrated DSC.

The MOB1 is intended to be installed within the life-jacket and will activate automatically on inflation, sending the first alert within 15 seconds. The MOB1 is compatible with even the most compact inflatable life-jackets. The MOB1 communicates with the vessel you have been separated from and other vessels in the vicinity (up to 5 miles range dependent on conditions). * DSC functionality is subject to regulations of country. † Subject to warranty statement.
In an emergency rescueME MOB1 provides two methods of rapidly communicating your location back to the vessel, plus providing visual indication. Once activated your MOB1 will transmit an alert to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled plotters in the vicinity. The integrated GPS ensures precise location is sent to your vessel and any others that may be assisting. An additional feature of the MOB1, is its ability to activate the DSC alarm on your vessels VHF, alerting your crew to the situation. The integrated strobe light ensures maximum visibility in low light conditions.
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.
Compatibility: Most modern AIS plotters and DSC VHF comply with the standards required to receive MOB transmissions. It is however, especially if you are using older equipment, recommended that you check compatibility with the equipment manufacturer.
