Overall Winner of the 2012 Pittman Innovation Awards. West Marine 2012 Top 6 Product. The Kannad Marine SafeLink R10 SRS (Survivor Recovery System) is worn on a lifejacket and activated by sliding off the safety tab and lifting an arming cap to deploy the antenna. The compact, lightweight unit sends alert messages, GPS position and a special identity code directly to AIS receivers within approximately a four mile radius. A unique, built-in, high precision GPS receiver – which updates every 60 seconds – assures accuracy of the transmitted data. With precise location, distance and bearing data, fellow crew members (and nearby AIS-enabled receivers) receive all the information they need to locate the position of the person in difficulty and to enable a speedy recovery.
