The Cobham SAILOR 5052 AIS-SART is one of the premier AIS-SARTs on the market today.

The Cobham Sailor 5052 AIS-SART is a manual deployment survivor location device intended for use on life-rafts or survival crafts. It meets IMO SOLAS requirements and is the next generation alternative to the well known SAILOR SART II Radar SART and a direct replacement for the SAILOR 5051 AIS SART.

SAILOR 5052 AIS SART is a self-contained radio device used to locate a survival craft or vessel in distress by sending updated position reports using the standard Automatic Identification System (AIS) class-A position report.  It’s intended for use in a life raft or survival craft.  It can be deployed onboard or in the water.

SOLAS GMDSS vessels from 300 GRT are required to carry one SART, and vessels over 500 GRT are required to carry two. Since 2010, AIS SARTs have been a permissible IMO alternative to radar SARTs under the SOLAS regulations.

The SAILOR 5052 AIS SART is compact and easy to operate and deploy. Packaged in a highly visible yellow carry case, the 5052  AIS-SART can be wall mounted onboard or stored inside a survival craft.

When disaster strikes you need a SART to help you and your crew!
