SmartFind G8-AIS EPIRB with Manual Bracket

The McMurdo SmartFind G8 AIS are the world’s first EPIRBs to include 406MHz, 121.5MHz, AIS and GNSS (better known as GPS) to accelerate search and rescue. The unique power of these new award winning beacons is in the flexibility and additional tracking capabilities long demanded by maritime customers. This will further reduce rescue times by combining the global location power of 406MHz with the localized rescue capacities of AIS, first introduced to the world in McMurdo’s AIS MOB range. Mcmurdo SmartFind EPIRBS include a ruggerized base, easy service battery and MEOSAR compatibility. The additional false activation protection and multiple self-tests contribute to total user confidence.
