Sail-World.com : SafeLink R10 MOB system wins Innovation Award
SafeLink R10 MOB system wins Innovation Award

'Safelink R10'    .

It's just won a prestigious Innovation award as the 'perfect MOB product', is being quoted as the next 'must have' for crew safety, is on the market and selling in Europe, but won't be available in Australia until authorised by Australian Authorities.

The Kannad Marine SafeLink R10 SRS(Survivor Recovery System) has just been named as the overall Winner of 2012 Pittman Innovation Awards.

The win is made even more impressive because this is the first year an Overall Winner of the Pittman Awards has been selected by the judges.

The judging panel recognized that the SafeLink R10 was 'the perfect man-overboard product' and commented on how the integration of AIS and GPS in to a personal distress beacon is a significant innovation in sailing safety.

On this basis the panel agreed that the R10 topped a strong field of contenders.

The SafeLink R10 is worn on a lifejacket and activated by sliding off the safety tab and lifting an arming cap to deploy the antenna. The compact, lightweight unit sends alert messages, GPS position and a special identity code directly to AIS receivers within approximately a four mile radius.

A unique, built-in, high precision GPS receiver - which updates every 60 seconds – assures accuracy of the transmitted data. With precise location, distance and bearing data, fellow crew members (and nearby AIS-enabled receivers) receive all the information they need to locate the position of the person in difficulty and to enable a speedy recovery.

The R10 SRS can also be fitted with a flashing LED light to aid location at night. The R10 SRS will transmit continuously for up to 24 hours and has a seven year battery storage life. It is made of ultra durable ABS and is waterproof to five meters.

According to Craig Johnson, Marine Product Manager for RFD Australia, who represent Kannad Marine here, they are expecting to have the R10 available from April 2012.
