How SafeLink R10 Works

  • SafeLink R10 must be mounted on a lifejacket using the attachment clips provided, prior to going to sea
    R10 is activated manually in an emergency situation
  • A unique emergency alert is transmitted to all AIS receivers and AIS enabled chart plotters within a 4 mile radius (typical)
  • An AIS SAR emergency icon signals the requirement for urgent help in a Man Overboard situation. Precise target survivor information including GPS position becomes viewable when the chart plotter* cursor is positioned over the emergency alert icon Provides exact location, range and bearing to locate person(s) in need of assistance.
  • The SafeLink R10 can be manually activated in two easy steps; when installed in the lifejacket the orange safety tab should be released, this ‘arms’ the R10 ready for use. To use, first inflate the lifejacket. When it is inflated, pull the orange tab downwards to pull the red cap off the R10. This will deploy the antenna and automatically switch ON the R10 SRS.
  • If professionally* fitted to a lifejacket, the R10 can become semi-automatic in operation; the action of the lifejacket inflating triggers the activation of the R10 (see below).

Automatic Activation Supported Lifejackets (PFDs)

Providing it is professionally fitted, by the lifejacket manufacturer or one of its authorised service centres, the R10 can be made to activate when the lifejacket inflates. This makes the R10 as automatic as the lifejacket, activating as a result of the lifejacket being inflated.
