MOB Device for Immediate Alert for Fast Response
Professional mariners know the life-threatening hazards of falling overboard, but may not consider how critical the recovery window is, especially with a moving vessel. Compact and easily carried on a PFD, the ALERT2 Man-Overboard Alarm System from Emerald Marine Products immediately sets off a piercing audible alarm in the wheelhouse upon immersion, and can even be wired to stop an engine and/or set a waypoint on a chartplotter.

Answering the Call From Above
Selecting a "Technology-of-the-Year" for the June 2002 Yearbook edition of Maritime Reporter & Engineering News was no small task, and a decidedly unscientific one, at that. There were no editorial boards, voting slips, gala dinners or plaques. Simply put, the editors of MR/EN arrived on Satellite Communications technology as the centerpiece of its largest edition based on observation, discussion and analysis of the companies that have develop, supply, test and purchase the products and services that fall under its broad category.Words alone cannot summarize the technological revolution that has swept the world during the past decades. Consider for a moment a world without the Internet, e-mail or seamless, high-capacity communication links.
Comrod Launches New Multifunction Antenna System
Norway-based Comrod A/S has developed a new Multifunction Antenna System – MAS1. It allows simultaneous transmitting and multireceiving through a single cable and antenna – at the same time. Its ultimate compact design using latest technology makes the MAS1 unique compared to other multi-function antennas on the market. A regular COMROD VHF or COMROD combined VHF/cellular antenna is mounted onto a wide-band preamplifier (MAS1/A.BI). By this, all frequency bands are combined into one output port and only one antenna cable is required. At the other end of the cable, a filter unit (MAS1/F) is connected. This unit divides the signals into its desired connection port.
