The MOB1 communicates with the vessel you have been separated from and other vessels in the vicinity up to 5 miles range depending on the weather conditions. To alert the rescue authorities, an alternative product the rescueME PLB1 communicates directly via a dedicated search and rescue satellite network.
In an emergency, the rescueME MOB1 provides you with 2 methods of rapidly communicating your position to the vessel and also provides a visual indication using the built-in strobe light.
The best chance for rapid rescue if you fall overboard always comes from your own vessel. Your crew needs to be immediately aware of the incident and keep track of your position while the recovery is carried out. Even in the most moderate of sea conditions, it is alarming how quickly a visual sighting of a man overboard can be quickly lost.
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.
