Introducing the world’s smallest AIS MOB device with integrated DSC – the
rescueME MOB1 from Ocean Signal. The MOB1 is compatible with even the most
compact inflatable life-jackets.
The MOB1 is intended to be installed within the life-jacket and will activate
automatically on inflation, sending the fi rst alert within 15 seconds.
The integrated strobe light ensures maximum visibility in low light
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). To alert
rescue authorities, an alternative product the rescueME PLB1 communicates
directly via a dedicated search and rescue satellite network.
In an emergency rescueME MOB1 provides 2 methods of rapidly communicating
your position, accurate to a few metres, back to the vessel, plus providing
visual indication via its built in strobe light.
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
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.
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
AIS transmission Transmit Power
