The AIS S.A.R.T. "easyRESCUE" is a rescue device certified by SOLAS and the German Federal Maritime Agency BSH and thus meets the highest quality and safety standards, as they are required in commercial shipping. Additionally, the unit has been tested by the United States Coast Guard and the FCC.
When the floating body of the vest inflates in an emergency, a ripcord tears off a magnetic switch from the transmitter. This leads to an automatic activation of the AIS emergency beacon. The easyRESCUE now determines the current GPS position and sends it with a common worldwide standard distress signal via VHF radio technology. This distress signal contains important information, such as, for example, course and speed over ground of the accident victim.
Each vessel with an AIS receiver on board within a radius of up to 10 nautical miles will receive this signal and is informed of the emergency as well as detailed information regarding the victim and can participate in the rescue. The GPS position and the resulting course and speed over ground are updated every minute and sent 8 times per minute.
In the best case scenario, your own ship is equipped with AIS, which would provide the best chances for rescuing the accident victim as soon as possible. However, even if your own ship does not have AIS on board, then all the other ships can hurry to help.

easy RESCUE inside
This lifejacket is designed to be used with an integrated AIS SART, distress transmitter easyRESCUE. This emergency transmitter is available in two different versions:
b) easyRESCUE-PRO (DSC GMDSS)
The easyRESCUE-PRO has been developed from 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)
The easyRESCUE-PRO is identical in construction to the easyRESCUE-BW-COM, and provides as AIS SART the same functionality.
However, the device has got additionally the possibility of delivering a "distress call" via DSC radio. This happens at the same moment, in which also the AIS alarm is automatically activated. As a first step, an alert message is sent per DSC to the own ship in "closed loop". For this purpose the MNSI of the own ship must be programmed into the device. The "closed loop" is maintained for 5 minutes. In case of an acknowledgment of receipt within this time, optically and acoustically the victims will be visualized on the device, since the easyRESCUE-PRO has a built-in DSC receiver.
If the own ship has not acknowledge the „closed loop" alert, the easyRESCUE-PRO starts sending „open loop DSC distress call" (MOB) to all ships. Now the shore station or other ship stations nearby can acknowledge this message and the easyRESCUE-PRO will also stop transmitting via DSC.
