McMurdo, a business of the Orolia Group, will introduce three new AIS products to the U.S. market at the 2013 International WorkBoat Show, October 9-11 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans (booth 1228).

McMurdo provides descriptions of its new products below.

Smartfind M5 AIS Class A Transponder
The Smartfind M5 AIS Class A Transponder gives mariners the ability to view at a glance the AIS status of vessels all around them and provides access to a host of detailed navigation information.

Smartfind M5 is a flexible, user-friendly and cost-effective AIS Class A transponder, incorporating a fully comprehensive AIS MOB and AIS SART alarm to aid MOB recovery. It provides on screen Indication and internal buzzer when any AIS SART/MOB TXID is received, an optional remote waterproof (MOB / alarm) sounder is also available. It also allows a “buddy list” of the vessels own AIS MOB IDs and associated crew name and has a steer to rescue MOB casualty target screen. The AIS MOB alarm feature is compatible with the McMurdo S10 AIS Beacon, Smartfind S20 SRS and other AIS SART devices.

A compact single box solution, the Smartfind M5 features a 3.5” bright color LCD display with powerful juggle control for quick entry of voyage related information as well as easy navigation of menus. It also features an embedded coast line map, detailed AIS target list and radar type overview. This enables users to react effectively in different maritime situations thanks to its direct control function keys. Low cost, reduced size and easy installation make the M5 ideal to meet the budgets and demands of owners and vessel operators in these difficult economic times.

Smartfind M15 AIS Receiver
The Smartfind M15 AIS Receiver will decode all AIS messages that are transmitted by AIS Class A, Class B transponders, AIS SARTs, AIS MOBs and Aids To Navigation. It is a high performance, low cost receiver that brings many of the safety advantages of AIS to a wider range of vessels than ever before.

The Smartfind M15 is designed with sophisticated dual-channel receivers for optimal performance. It is compact (128mm(w) x 36(h) x 88(d), easy to install and supplied with user-friendly AIS viewer software for PC.

Smartfind M10 AIS Class B Transponder
The Smartfind M10 AIS Class B Transponder is perfect for smaller non SOLAS vessels where the complexity of a Class A Transponder is not necessary. It transmits vessel position information as well as receiving all AIS targets within approximately 20 miles of the boat.

Using the built-in GPS receiver, the Smartfind M10 determines position, speed and course, and once this is combined with other navigational information, it is automatically transmitted without any user interaction. When received by other vessels and coast stations, the data built up to provide a live graphical display of traffic in the area. This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.
