AIS Transponder Class A OceanSat

Class A AIS OceanSat

OceanSat Class A AIS transponder for professional ships and boats, mandatory for fishing boats and GMDSS stations.


AIS Class A transponder produced by the Dutch OceanSat and designed for professional boats. It is robust, particularly reliable in its functionality and simple in its operation.

The display provides a basic view of the position of the AIS targets around the ship and does not replace the use of navigation systems (ECDIS plotters) that can better highlight these details.

The transmitter supports both AIS Class A maritime mode (high seas / SOLAS) and Inland AIS terrestrial mode. Through the menu you can choose one of the two modes and this operation must be performed at the time of installation.

It is certified according to IEC standards for offshore navigation, and is Wheelmark, USCG and FCC approved.
