Vesper AIS WatchMate 850 Transponder

Vesper Marine has designed the AIS WatchMate 850 Transponder to help avoid collisions at sea. Using the universal ship-borne Automatic Identification System (AIS), the WatchMate transmits your AIS data and displays data from all nearby AIS equipped vessels. Audible warning alarms sound whenever a collision hazard with a ship is detected, based on the closest point of approach (CPA) and the time until CPA. Ships and alarms are displayed in a prioritised list to better navigate crowded shipping areas. Also, unique and customisable filter settings help eliminate false alarms. The WatchMate can be interfaced to other on-board electronics and will provide full AIS output.
