The compact AIS transponder solution

Reliability of equipment on board is an important factor in the operation of a ship, especially when it comes to mandatory systems, such as AIS. The time needed for repairs takes away time from profitably operating a ship. Our AIS transponders have a good track record in reliability and are full featured.

The R5 Solid AIS is our fifth generation transponder system, building on the success of the R4 AIS system. Which is in operation on 20,000 ships worldwide. The R5 Solid includes an Inland AIS mode for European river going vessels. The R5 system features cutting edge digital radio technology, resulting from over five years of research on software defined radios.

Sharing radio technology with military grade systems, the R5 technology is a big leap forward into the future of AIS radios. The highly versatile R5 platform will continue to evolve, as new requirements are introduced.
