We offer the innovative marine safety products from Vesper Marine that are designed to help avoid collisions at sea using the marine-based Automatic Identification System (AIS). Their AIS WatchMate systems provide the most advanced navigational safety and collision warning system available. The AIS WatchMate family of collision warning devices are sophisticated instruments, available as a receiver alone or with transponder - yet they are very easy to use and consume minimal power.
Sailing, power and workboat owners all find the AIS WatchMate products with Class B AIS display to be the easiest to use. They are far simpler to operate than a chart plotter, computer or radar, yet much more capable. Audible warning alarms are sounded if a potentially dangerous situation exists. The alarm sounds whenever a ship is detected that will come dangerously close even though the ship may still be many miles away. You are alerted immediately with the closest point of approach (CPA) and the time until CPA. Unique and customizable alarm and filter settings help to eliminate false alarms. Prioritization of targets eliminates clutter on the screen, allowing you to focus on the highest risk targets. Ships and alarms are displayed in a prioritized order, assisting you to safely navigate in crowded shipping areas.
Look here for the latest in AIS WatchMate technology, with stand-alone models and all the equipment you need to interface AIS with your onboard electronics. Blue water sailors, coastal boaters, and the merchant marine alike find the AIS WatchMate equipment to be indispensible.
