With the approval this week of the Safelink R10 SRS (Survivor Recovery System) by the USA's FCC (Federal Communications Commission), a new level of survivor recovery technology is reached. The small device, which combines GPS and AIS technology in a personal locator beacon, was the Overall Winner of the Pittman Innovation Awards, but had to wait approval before going on sale.

The revolutionary SafeLink R10 is a world-first personal AIS device, designed to be worn by anyone who spends time on the water for work or leisure purposes.

Intended to be attached to a lifejacket and activated by individuals in difficulty at sea, the innovative R10 uses both GPS and AIS (Automatic Identification System) technology to send structured alert messages containing precise location information to AIS equipment onboard the vessel that the individual has come from and other AIS equipped vessels within about a four mile radius. In a man overboard situation, chances of finding and recovering the casualty are greatly increased, thanks to information given by the R10 which for the first time shows bearing and distance to the man in the water.

This week, Kannad Marine, a business of the Orolia Group announced that the device has been formally approved for sale in the US by the FCC.

'With this FCC certification, the United States joins a growing list of countries worldwide that have granted type approval for the SafeLink R10 SRS,' said McMurdo Ltd Global Sales Director Ross Wilkinson.
