Offering fully compliant solutions to increase visibility, aid collision-avoidance and enhance navigational safety, the transponders are suitable for a wide range of vessels.

Neil Jordan, Managing Director, Ocean Signal, said: “The ATA100 combines our proven technical know-how with the fluid product design Ocean Signal’s customers have come to expect to create a fully compliant, single unit solution which is easy to use and install. It has been meticulously designed to allow operators to access and interpret the information provided by AIS to simplify navigation and improve safety, with intuitive operation and features such as the large clear display, versatile mounting options and easy-to-grip jog stick.”
Incorporating Ocean Signal’s trusted technology within a compact design, the ATA100 is the only Class A AIS transponder available rated to the IPX7 waterproofing standard. It is user intuitive, featuring large illuminated keys and easy-to-grip jog stick and has a 7-inch high-intensity, full-colour, rapid-response LCD.

The ATB1 is a powerful transponder incorporating superior SOTDMA technology and 5W output power. Easy to use with accessible connections, the ATB1 features a sleek, yet rugged, waterproof design that is high on performance and low on energy consumption.

Both units are compatible with Ocean Signal’s rescueME MOB1 man overboard AIS/DSC device.
