The GME AISR120 incorporates two ultra sensitive receivers coupled to a sophisticated processor with RMax™ technology. Ideally suited for installation on leisure boats where collision avoidance is the primary concern, the AISR120 can be interfaced to a PC, notebook, or GME chartplotter for greater situational awareness.
The GME AISR120 will receive both static and dynamic information from both AIS class A and B equipped vessels, aids to navigation and base stations that are within VHF range.
The GME AISR120 can use either a dedicated AIS antenna, or share the vessel’s existing VHF antenna via the GME AISS120 VHF antenna splitter.
An AIS receiver will allow you to track other traffic in the area with an AIS transponder onboard, and identify ‘Aids to Navigation’ (AtoN) even when not visibly by sight. You’ll no longer be inhibited by limitations like ‘inline-of-site’ radar. Unlike radar, AIS allows you to ‘see’ other AIS equipped craft behind obstructions like islands and land masses or hidden behind another vessel, and is equally effective in fog or darkness. AIS information is displayed on dedicated AIS screens or AIS compatible Chartplotters.
AIS receivers collect the transmissions from AIS transceivers, base stations and aids to navigation displaying them on compatible chartplotters or dedicated displays. An AIS receiver does not transmit information about your vessel and is used to provide you with situational awareness of other traffic and hazards in the area.
