SafeLink R10 Increases Chances of Survival in MOB Situation

Safety first! We think that anything that increases your chance of survival in a dire situation is pretty cool, and this takes the EPIRB to the next level in a man overboard situation.

The SafeLink R10 transmits target survivor information, including structured alert messages, GPS position information and a unique serialized identity number back to the onboard plotter. An inbuilt high precision GPS receiver provides accurate position information to assist in quick recovery of survivors. It will transmit continuously for a minimum of 24 hours and has a seven-year battery storage life. It also features a flashing LED indicator light; to aid detection at night and a self test facility with battery use indication.

Before going to sea, simply mount the SafeLink R210 SRS to the life jacket using the attachment clips provided. Activate the signal manually when needed by sliding off the orange arming tab. With the orange tab released, use this to pull off the red arming cap. This will deploy the antenna and automatically activate the R10 SRS, and a unique emergency alert will be transmitted to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled chart plotters within a four-mile radius.

Precise target survivor information including GPS position becomes viewable when the chart plotter cursor is positioned over the emergency alert icon providing exact location, range and bearing to locate persons in need of assistance. The R10 SRS can become semi-automatic in operation with the action of the life jacket inflating triggering the activation of the R10 SRS if professionally fitted to the life jacket.
