The MED/Wheelmark approved NSR NAS-1000 AIS SART is a buoyant and waterproof Search and Rescue Transponder
Designed to use for emergency purpose on liferaft. According to the relative ΙΜΟ rule, either AIS-SART or traditional RADAR-SART (Search and Rescue Transponder) can be accepted as “SAR LOCATING DEVICE” to be a member of onboard GMDSS family from January 1 st, 2010. When activated, the NAS-1000 transmits an alert message along with your ID number and current GPS location. This will trigger an alarm on all AIS equipped vessels within VHF range. The inbuilt GPS provides accurate location information to rescuers, enabling them to quickly locate you.
Compared to RADAR SART, AIS-SART has advantage in some aspects, such as farther-reach transmission and less affect from sea conditions. With more and more vessels to be fitted with AIS, AIS-SART will become more effective and useful in SAR operations.
