ACR ResQLink AIS GPS Personal Location Beacon PLB-450 w/AIS RLS - 94458

A world leader in rescue devices and other life-saving products relied on by both professional and recreational mariners, ACR is proud to offer the ResQLink AIS. This compact high-tech Personal Locator Beacon is the world’s first PLB to include both AIS (Automatic Identification System) and NFC (Near Field Communication) in addition to standard satellite notification through the Cospas Sarsat rescue system. AIS means instant local notification for faster rescue times. Ensures the beacon is working properly when needed and provides easy access via smartphone to all functions and records. Accurate positioning through GNSS (GPS, Galileo, Glonass) and 406 MHz satellite connectivity mean reliable service worldwide.121.5MHz homing transmissions combined with AIS and both visible and infrared strobe aid in beacon location and speed recovery times. The innovative ACR ResQLink AIS is the FIRST to combine all these features in a compact easy-to-use PLB Beacon making it the FIRST choice for serious mariners looking for a Personal Locator Beacon.

The Worldwide Cospas Sarsat satellite system includes 3 different constellations to ensure your 406 MHz distress signal immediately reaches the global network of Search and Rescue forces with your location accurate to within 100 meters. With multiple levels of integrated signaling technology including 406 MHz and GNSS (GPS, Galileo, Glonass) positioning, the PLB also transmits a 121.5 MHz homing signal which guides Search and Rescue services to the beacon’s current location when they arrive at the scene, as the beacon may have drifted from the originally transmitted position. The addition of AIS (Automatic Identification System) transmissions means the ResQLink AIS simultaneously alerts all vessels equipped with AIS transponders within the VHF radio range of the PLB’s distress position. This greatly increases both the likelihood and speed of rescue since nearby vessels receive the alerts.  Immediately upon deployment of the beacon an AIS Safety Message or MOB Alarm with the beacon’s MMSI and location is presented on any AIS screen within range. This makes it easy for nearby vessels to home in on the beacon since it is an active AIS target on their screens.
