AISLink sends your GPS co-ordinates to other AIS equipped vessels in the vicinity to alert them that you require assistance. At the push of a button SOS distress signals will be sent to vessels up to 5 miles away from your location.  The DSC alarm on your vessel’s VHF can also be signaled.

AISLink automatically activates upon inflation of your lifejacket sending an alert within 15 seconds to all AIS receivers and plotters in the vicinity.  Once SOS is initiated the device will continue to transmit your location for a minimum of 24 hours.
