The Smartfind S20 is a personal Automatic Identification System (AIS) device worn on a lifejacket. The unit sends alert messages, GPS position, and a special identity code directly to AIS receivers within an approximate four-mile radius. A flashing LED light aids location at night. GPS positioning is updated every 60 seconds, and transmits continuously for up to 24 hours.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
