the first SART to
be shipped globally as a NON-HAZARDOUS
item, greatly reducing shipping costs and paperwork, and
was designed to be equally applicable to the
‘Carry-Off’ SART market and to the new liferaft-mounted requirements.
Its advanced design means it can
be delivered to market at a price where it is often
more efficient to buy a new
SART than it is to replace the battery pack on many older units.
The S.701 SART has been highly successful in the RoRo ferry sector, in
which it has achieved more than 75% market share!
Recognising the significance and
potential contribution to safety of
introduced the SeaTraceR AIS Class B
Transponder in 2007. The
SeaTraceR was designed to
be fully waterproof and robust for commercial use, yet still
lightweight, small and cost effective for the leisure user. It is fully
compliant with the IEC International specification, and is very simple
to install. And near the end of the same year this was followed by the
uniquely upgradeable SeaVieweR AIS/GPS Receiver.

made significant contributions in this market individually, including design, regulatory, consulting,
manufacture and servicing involvement with many
of the major suppliers. It is worth noting that there are only three or four
other successful SART manufacturers, as the particular skill set required to
produce a SART is rather unusual, and requires good working expertise in
microwave circuit and antenna design as well as in marine electronics, environments and regulatory requirements.
combination of extensive market knowledge, state-of-the-art design and
highly relevant manufacturing experience delivered a new generation of SART
that is the slimmest and lightest so far. This creativity is now
being focused on the application of AIS technology.
