SIMY® launches My-AIS™(*), the most affordable and compact marine emergency beacon in the world.

Maritime safety has been dramatically increased since the emergence of AIS-MOB emergency beacons used by sea professionals.

By sending a distress message using AIS local network, AIS-MOB beacons are today the smartest and fastest way to send a local alert, being GPS-located and rescued by nearby vessels within radio range (5 to 10 nautical miles).

With SIMY My-AIS fitted into your lifejacket, save up to 100 € per beacon and offer to everyone aboard a true safety ally.

SIMY aims at providing the most inexpensive and the most advanced high-tech products for your outdoor activities, on land and at sea.

SIMY My-AIS is 2 to 4 times more compact than other comparable beacons and has 7 years battery life. My-AIS has been designed with care by SYRLINKS in France, one of the world leaders in miniaturization of space radio communication devices.

SIMY® is the brand name of SYRLINKS' safety products marketed on: www.simy-beacons.co.uk

Compactness: My-AIS fits into all lifejackets

Most of distress beacons are bulky and can interfere with the movements of those who wear them. They are rarely used by amateur or occasional boaters.

My-AIS is smaller than a cell phone (11x4x2cm) and very light (95g), it will be discreet and quickly forgotten once inserted into the user's lifejacket.

SIMY: safety at sea for all boaters

Australia's abundance of coastlines & waterways make water activities very popular, and recreational boating is no exception. The West Australian coast is the longest in Australia. 18.9% of WA residents are living with at least one boat (this is the highest rate in the country). Queensland residents are 15.6% followed by Tasmanians with 14.8%. The number of Australian boat owners is increasing each year, representing a myriad of opportunities for retailers and sellers of marine equipment.

My-AIS makes safety at sea accessible to all at an affordable price. This type of beacon is no longer only reserved for insiders or sea professionals.

At sea, mutual assistance prevails in case of distress

When at sea, solidarity is always key. You are never alone when the unexpected occur.

Once activated, My-AIS transmits the GPS position of the shipwrecked by VHF waves. Ships or coast stations within radio range (5 to 10 nautical miles) will instantly know the man overboard distress situation and GPS position. They can then intervene as quickly and efficiently as possible to rescue the shipwrecked.

* AIS = Automatic Identification System
