Details

The AIS Life Guard is the world's first AIS Man Overboard Alarm designed to work with the new generation of AIS SARTs that have recently been approved for global use by the IMO.

Many existing AIS compatible chart plotters do not fully support AIS SARTs but with the AIS Life Guard connected to an AIS transponder or AIS receiver, you can have a complete working AIS SART man overboard system. Operation is automatic, simply connect the two wire NMEA input on the AIS Life Guard to the NMEA output of your AIS and it will listen to all AIS traffic.

As soon as an AIS SART transmission is detected the AIS Life Guard will sound its internal 95dB alarm and display a red warning light. For larger installations, it can also be connected to an external alarm (not supplied) so that the whole boat is immediately alerted.

The AIS Life Guard detects both message 1 and message 14, the two AIS messages reserved for AIS SARTs and will also give a short three beep alarm if it detects an AIS SART test message, great for checking correct operation of your AIS SARTs prior to a voyage.

All Digital Yacht AIS receivers and transponders are compatible with the AIS Life Guard and it is designed to operate on 12v or 24v DC systems.

Features:

  • World's first dedicated AIS Man Overboard Alarm system
  • Alarms when AIS SART message 1 and 14 are detected
  • Internal 95dB buzzer with option to drive external alarm (not supplied)
  • Audible and Visual Alarms
  • Push button to silence alarm (short press) and reset alarm (long press)
  • Easy to install IP54 black box solution

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.
