IONEER – 24/7 unlimited traceability

The IONEER locating beacon enables unlimited traceability available 24/ for local and global fleet activities. The palm-sized position transmitter is reliable working with AIS Class B CSTDMA functionality and IRIDIUM® sat network.

Big benefit for the fleet administration is to know ‘Who & Where’ for coordination and management as well as coastal border security issues. Defining and using ‘Geo-Fence-Areas’ allows to create limited entry zones or restricted areas.

The additional ‘Push-to-Alert’ button is another very important benefit for the outgoing fishermen. In event of emergency, in addition to the regular position report an official AIS emergency message will be send out.

As soon as a pre-programmed distance to the coastline is overrun, the IONEER unit automatically switches into sat-communication via IRIDIUM satellites. The AIS based communication can be done bi-directional: ‘Ship-to-Sat-to-Shore’ and vice versa.

Next win at an important asian country for fishing fleet tracking

Weatherdock – Second win of German Quality in an Asian Country for fishing fleet tracking

The German Weatherdock AG is honored to be awarded the second time with a big order by an important Asian Government for supplying a fleet tracking and monitoring system.

By using the Weatherdock’s vmsTRACK system mounted on the fishing vessels, the local Department of Fishery is able to continuously track and observe all small and bigger non-coastal fishing vessels in their EEZ and beyond in offshore areas. With such a high level proofed system the Government does the next important step to work against illegal, unreported and unlicensed fishing (IUU).

Reliable, proofed and certified quality

The vmsTRACK system was tested hard and intensive by the Department of Fishery and finally convinced with best performance figures such as transmission range and reliability. The devices are transmitting continuously in a pre-set time interval to bring up a real-time-image of the area to headquarter.

„After awarding Weatherdock for the first batch of tracking units for the coastal fishing vessels we tested a lot, very hard, very intensive to make sure that these German position transmitter are full compliant to given standards to be the best solution for our country and our needs before awarding Weatherdock the second time with the next batch for the non-coastal fishing vessels” the customer said.

Safety of Fishermen included

Every vmsTRACK unit mounted on a vessel has got an additional “push to alert” button that triggers a standardized AIS SART emergency message which can be received by every vessel or coastal station in the vicinity to help immediately with the rescue.

“For us it is very important that the customer is totally convinced about the product and he has a good feeling with his decision. Delivering reliable technologies on the highest possible level which follow the existing rules and fit the given specification is the goal we want to achieve.” says Alfred Kotouczek-Zeise, CEO and Speaker of the Board of Weatherdock.

How vivinity gets the MOB alert




PRESS RELEASE „easyONE – AIS MOB Emergency Transmitter“

Full automatic AIS MOB unit “Made in Germany”

We have the pleasure to present Weatherdock’s latest AIS rescue device: The easyONE AIS MOB Emergency Transmitter. The easyONE is the first fully-automatic AIS Emergency Transmitter of its kind worldwide.

Its patented release mechanism will take your boat’s crew to a new level of safety. A group of experts developed this brilliant release mechanism that automatically puts in place an antenna (in storage rolled up in spiral shape) once the easyONE gets into constant contact with water. At the same time it triggers an alarm and sends a MOB emergency message (Man over Board). This emergency message, which, of course, can also be activated manually, will be received by all AIS receivers within reach (up to 7 nautical miles – depending on weather conditions and the height of the receiving antenna). All kinds of displays on receiving vessels, such as chart plotters, will consequently display this alert and make an immediate rescue action a lot more probable. Weighing 120 grams the easyONE AIS emergency transmitter is equipped with two lithium battery cells making possible 36 hours of constant operation at 0°C outside temperature. When properly stored the batteries have a life span of 7 years.

The easyONE comes with an integrated 56-channel GPS receiver that is ready to operate within around 35 seconds (counting from power-on to connection to satellites). Furthermore a bright flashing High-Power-LED light will make sure persons are also found at night and with low visibility.

Due to its low weight and compact dimensions (168 x 48 x 27mm) Weatherdock’s easyONE can be easily attached to all automatic life vests. Furthermore the device is fully waterproof (up to 10m depth) and floating and can thus be used as a MOB life buoy in combination with a lifesaver. For the next maintenance of your life raft you might also want to think about having the easyONE integrated into the raft. No matter which application, the easyONE has to be attached to your equipment (lifejacket, lifesaver or clothing) with the provided hand line. This is the only way to ensure the person-over-board is staying close to the easyONE, which is crucial to lead rescue services to the location. When transmitting the easyONE sends the AIS standard messages No 1 and 14. The first message contains the AIS position report, the device identification number as well as course and speed over ground. Message 14 which is, like message 1, constantly updated and sent in certain intervals contains a safety message, the device identification number as well as the text messages “MOB active” or “MOB test”. The text messages inform about the state of the AIS emergency device and whether it is in test-mode or not. The test-mode can be activated at the push of a button and shows the correct functioning of the AIS device with the MOB test symbol.

The AIS Emergency Transmitter easyONE is instantly ready for operation. You do not need to register the device or subscribe to a service.
