Localised rescue support from AIS Man Overboard devices, like the Kannad R10 – the world’s first personal AIS MOB, offer the most effective solution for remote fishing vessels to recover an individual involved in a man overboard incident. The diminished MOB time in the water, by equipping the original vessel to offer rescue capabilities, ultimately increases response time and reduces fatalities.
