The McMurdo SmartFind M10 AIS Class B Transponder transmits vessel position information and receives all AIS targets within 20 miles of the boat.
The McMurdo SmartFind M10 AIS Class B Transponder, part of McMurdo's new range of innovative AIS products, is perfect for smaller non SOLAS vessels, where the complexity of a Class A Transponder is not necessary. Using the built-in GPS receiver, the SmartFind M10 determines position, speed and course, and once this is combined with other navigational information, it is automatically transmitted without any user interaction. When received by other vessels and coast stations, the data built up to provide a live graphical display of traffic in the area.
Engineered for flawless integration with navigation systems, the SmartFind M10 supports NMEA2000 and NMEA0183 output, meets IEC 62287 and related standards.
Benefiting from an SD card slot, the SmartFind M10, can be quickly and easily used as a data recorder, enabling the capture of all messages - to assist in system and safety monitoring, including incident investigation. Recorded data is logged and stored.
The `Silent' option, allows the user to temporarily stop the broadcast of identifying information on occasions where either privacy or security is required.
The SmartFind M10W AIS Class B Transponder with WiFi features Wireless connectivity to a user’s smart device (tablet, phone, laptop) allowing operational flexibility.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
