2886 AISLink Personal AIS Man Overboard Beacon

The AISLink is a personal man overboard beacon using AIS (Automatic Identification System) technology designed to alert local vessels of your distress emergency. Small and compact, AISLink can be clipped to your clothing or use the oral inflation tube attachment to store inside your life jacket.

How AISLink Works
Unlike a Personal Locator Beacon that sends an alert to Satellites, the AISLink sends an AIS message including a structured alert message with your precise location, distance and bearing to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled chart plotters within a 4 nautical mile radius.

Equipped with an LED strobe light for low visibility rescues, AISLink will begin transmitting your distress within 10 seconds of activation and will transmit for 48 hours continuously.

While El Niño tends to spring up due to a random wind change in the tropical Pacific, La Niña often follows on El Niño’s heels, cooling the tropical Pacific Ocean, causing drought conditions across the southern tier of the US. How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.

Achieving Buy-in: The Importance of Community Involvement in Water Challenges

It's a fact that every resident of every state has a vested interest in water quality issues and the management of natural resources. However, too often the challenges posed by natural resource management are met by various battling groups of stakeholders with apparently different interests. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is funding a research project called, “Securing Water for and From Agriculture Through Effective Community and Stakeholder Engagement,” and its participants are hoping that what they learn about achieving buy-in from various stakeholders and the community involvement that follows can help resolve some of these repeating conflicts.

Not a Drop to Drink: Plastic Pipes Leaching Chemicals Into Drinking Water

American concerns about drinking water are reaching critical mass.
