Ocean Signal introduces the rescueME MOB1, the world’s smallest AIS MOB device with integrated DSC. The new rescueME MOB1 has been designed to attach easily to even the most compact life jackets, ready for automatic activation in the event of a man overboard situation.

Further strengthening Ocean Signal’s rescueME portfolio of innovative safety products, the MOB1 device provides two methods of communicating the location of a person in the water back to the boat and other vessels in the vicinity. Once the rescueME MOB1 is activated, AIS (Automatic Identification System) transmissions will provide accurate position information on the vessel’s chart plotter.

Depending upon capability, the plotter will show a red circle plus longitude, latitude, and distance and bearing to the person in distress. In addition, the Digital Selective Calling (DSC) VHF alarm will also be triggered.
