Approval

Our easyRESCUE Rescue Transmitters have a basic approval and do not have to be registered anymore!

The new easyRESCUE-PRO3 combines the 3 most effective alerting and locating systems, AIS, DSC and 121.5MHz homing, in one unit – just to make rescue missions as fast and efficient as possible.

Via AIS emergency message all vessels with AIS receiver aboard in the vicinity of up to 15 nm and more around the victim, including the mother ship, are informed about the distress situation. Updated every minute, this alert message contains current GPS position as well as COG (course over ground) and SOG (speed over ground) of the victim in a drift. These information enable every crew to assist with the rescue.

Via DSC distress call up to 8 different vessels get a first alerting call within seconds after the AIS MOB easyRESCUE-PRO3 was activated in closed loop. The MMSI numbers can be pre-programmed into the beacon. After the GPS fix is given, a second DSC distress call is send out in “closed loop”, containing GPS position of the victim. For the next 10 minutes the “closed loop” crews are able to acknowledge the incoming distress call. If the easyRESCUE-PRO3 receives no acknowledgement, the unit switches automatically into “open loop”, transmitting an “all ships call” to everybody into the GMDSS emergency network. This “all ships call” can be relayed by commercial vessels to forward the distress call to a coastal MRCC (maritime rescue coordination center) which are the sole stations to acknowledge the „open loop“.

Via 121.5MHz a so called “homing signal” is transmitted. With the respective receiving and bearing equipment the right direction to the victim can be found out of 3 nm distance. In situation when there is “no sight” to the victim this technology comes up with a high benefit. The closer the vessel is to the victim, the more precisely the life-saving bearing can be done.

The parallel activation of all 3 technologies is done automatically with rip cord and magnetic switch, as soon as the automatic life jacket inflates when submerged. The intended life jacket has to have a special pocket inside that was developed specially for the AIS MOB easyRESCUE-PRO3.

Approval

Our easyRESCUE Rescue Transmitters have a basic approval and do not have to be registered anymore!

The easyRESCUE-PRO (BT) rescue transmitter has an integrated Bluetooth-LE module. This allows easily and fast the programming of the up to 8 different MMSI numbers in the rescue transmitter. Get the best of both to alert vessels about situation of distress If a „MAN OVER BOARD“ situation happens, you need to keep the victim in sight. It is essential for his survival. The easyRESCUE-PRO has been developed based on the well-known and approved AIS S.A.R.T. device easyRESCUE. In addition to the AIS locating functionality, the easyRESCUE-PRO has got another built-in VHF alert: DSC distress call (MOB) By means of DSC distress call, other vessels having DSC controllers aboard are able to provide support as a potential emergency responder. It‘s a lightweight personal locating device which is fixed to clothing or lifejackets and which can be mounted onto a pole for use on life rafts.

Function

Upon activation, the easyRESCUE-PRO device starts transmitting position reports via AIS, providing the current GPS position along with COG, SOG and its individual unit ID. The victim‘s position is updated every minute and transmitted 8 times per minute for at least 96 hours, depending on the DSC closed loop distress acknowledgment. Therefore the crew of the ship will know exactly the victim‘s position, as well as every other ship with an AIS receiver or DSC controller within range. When in emergency, AIS messages are transmitted. It triggers a safety related message on every AIS chart plotter with a worldwide standardized symbol. By means of DSC distress call (MOB), this signal can be received by the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety Service), which is installed on numerous vessels and shore stations. The MRCC (Maritime Rescue Coordination Center) is part of the GMDSS (DSC) network. The easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending “closed loop” DSC distress alerts when activated. This “closed loop” message is addressed to the own ship of the victim. Up to this time no global alarm is initiated.  The crew on the own ship can decide to rescue the victim on this own and send out a DSC acknowledgment to the easyRESCUE-PRO, which stops sending DSC messages. In addition, the easyRESCUE-PRO offers the possibility of programming up to eight mother ships ID numbers (MMSI) into the device to those users, who often need to change a vessel like pilots, SAR crew members, etc. Any vessel within the “closed loop” group (up to eight vessels) can acknowledge these distress telegrams, which lead to a termination of the DSC distress calls send out by easyRESCUE-PRO. If the “closed loop” distress telegrams are not acknowledged, the easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending „open loop DSC distress calls“ (MOB) to all ships. Now the shore station or other commercial ship stations nearby can acknowledge this message and the easyRESCUE-PRO will also cease transmitting DSC. The global rescue operation will go on.

What is necessary to run the easyRESCUE-PRO?

The easyRESCUE-PRO needs no additional accessory. The device is ready to use, grab‘n‘go! An AIS receiver and a DSC controller are strongly recommended as a radio equipment on the own ship. Only then a fast and effective rescue operation can be conducted by the own crew.
