Based on international standards, the SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART is a sophisticated manual deployment survivor location device intended for use on life-rafts or survival craft. It offers improvements, including increased detection range, over traditional SART technology.
Using the Automatic Identification System (AIS), the SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART can provide surface vessels with its position at a range of approximately 5 miles whilst aircraft can locate it at over 30 miles, depending on conditions. This significantly improves your chances of a fast rescue.
Safety, under stress
The SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART is compact and easy to operate and deploy. It is a portable device that can be wall mounted on board or stored inside a survival craft for fast evacuation. So you can be confident of your ability to locate and activate it even in stressful situations.
The SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART transmits target survivor information including structured alert messages, GPS position information and a unique serial identity number. Once activated, the SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART transmits continually for minimum 6 hours. An in built GPS provides accurate position information to assist a quick recovery of survivors.
Identification for SAR vessels and aircraft is further enhanced, because SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART has a unique 9 digit identification code, which means an individual AIS SART can be located even under situations of heavy AIS traffic in busy shipping lanes.
Any activated SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART will show up with position and bearing on a vessels' ECDIS or chart-plotter as a red cross in a circle, meaning it can immediately be identified as a life craft in distress.
Thousands of vessels sail everyday with SAILOR SART, EPIRB and communications equipment on board so when it comes to GMDSS compliance, you can trust SAILOR.
The new SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART can replace the existing SAILOR SART II under most flags, and can be specified either standalone, or as part of state-of-the-art GMDSS installations based on the SAILOR 6000 GMDSS Series, which includes SAILOR VHF & MF/HF radios, mini-C terminals, touch screen control and approved accessories.
