McMurdo SmartFind S20
McMurdo’s AIS-based personal-locater beacon gives skippers the most precise contact point for a man overboard. Any in-range AIS device can pick up the signal, greatly increasing chances for rescue and often reducing rescue times. This aid to crew-overboard recovery grows more and more valuable as visibility decreases and separation from the victim increases. The unit can be attached to the oral inflation tube of an inflatable PFD; upon inflation, a lanyard is pulled to deploy the antenna and activate the beacon.
