Furuno won a contract to supply more than 300 of its FA100 Automatic Identification Systems
(AIS) to Tidewater Marine, Inc., the world’s largest offshore service company.
The FA100 is a complete AIS solution provided in a compact, single unit, which includes the IMO compliant MKD (Minimum Keyboard Display), AIS Transponder and GPS Receiver. The FA100 is designed for simplified installations and low cost maintenance. A typical system configuration requires only the Furuno compact MKD, junction box, standard GPS antenna and an AIS-VHF antenna to complete the installation.
