Furono FA30 AIS Receiver

The Furuno FA30’s Ethernet port means it can plug right into a NavNet vx2 network, but it also offers standard NMEA AIS output and comes with a PC AIS plotting program able to use the Ethernet feed, so it can be set up in many ways. The FA30—expected to cost less than $1,000—is a true dual-channel receiver (see more on Class B AIS transponders), which incidentally, Furuno plans to “eventually” offer in this same slightly bulky 10"x8.5"x3.5" casing. ACR showed a Class B prototype in Miami, and at least one other major manufacturer had one behind its booth.
