New communication technologies have enabled MSM to create compact electronic systems that can be easily integrated in any beaconing installation, including: X+S band, frequency-agile Racons of new generation, and transmitter-receiver AIS AtoN units strictly accomplishing international standards.

All these systems are completed with a specific software under Web environment able to combine AIS and Remote Monitoring features, which provides the user with continual information availability from any Internet access point.

MODELS AND TYPES OF AIS AtoN :

The MTU AIS-C transponder is a compact AIS AtoN device, providing automatic information on the GPS position of the marine aid to navigation (AtoN); thus making easy the location and identification of buoys, beacons and lighthouses on a vessel or an AIS Base Station chart.

A triple environmental protection housing compactly holds this device and the GPS antenna inside. The transponder is able to send status signals and alarms signals coming from any kind of beacon, either rotating or flashing one, without need to install any additional sensors.

Additionally, the MTU AIS-C can transmit meteorological and oceanographic data, such as current, wave height, tides, and wind direction and intensity; all this with a minimum energy consumption.

The MTU AIS-C complies with IMO, IEC, ITU and IALA Standards.

The MTU AIS unit is an AIS AtoN transponder device housed in a IP 67 watertight box, providing automatic information on the GPS position of the marine aid to navigation (AtoN); thus making easy the location and identification of buoys, beacons and lighthouses on a vessel or an AIS Base Station chart.

This unit is designed to be connected to any beacon of the market with a serial port and NMEA 0183 protocol available, thus transmitting operating status data.

Additionally, the MTU AIS can transmit meteorological and oceanographic data, such as current, wave height, tides, and wind direction and intensity; all this with a minimum energy consumption.

The MTU AIS complies with IMO, IEC, ITU and IALA Standards.

The MAK is a solar kit that houses an AIS AtoN device and its own solar power supply, thus completing a compact and self-powered unit.

The AIS AtoN device provides automatic information on the GPS position of the marine aid to navigation (AtoN); thus making easy the location and identification of buoys, beacons and lighthouses on a vessel or an AIS Base Station chart.

The MAK compact Kit is readily installed in any navaids station. Just fixing will be required and will be ready to go. It is ideal for those places without power system available where an AIS is required.

Our range of AIS AtoN complies with IMO, IEC, ITU and IALA Standards.
