What is SART

Radar Transp./AIS-SART

                   

In this section you will find the AIS SART and radar transponders from KANNAD Marine and McMurdo.

AIS: AIS stands for Automatic Identification System. Since 01/01/2005, ships over 300 tons and passenger ships that are subject to equipment must be equipped with AIS. Vehicles equipped with AIS continuously send information on the name, MMSI number, call sign, position, course, speed, yaw rate and type of vehicle via two special VHF channels.
AIS enables all participants, i.e. ships and traffic monitoring stations, to receive information about other vehicles within the VHF range and use this for their own purposes, e.g. B. to avoid collision to use.
For example, they know whether the fast ferry is dangerous on the horizon and can address them by name via VHF radio if necessary or make a DSC call directly with the MMSI number.
However, the AIS system is not a replacement for the radar device, but rather a supplement. AIS can only represent ships that send AIS data themselves, but not land, floating objects, unequipped or mandatory equipment such as small fishermen, warships and yachts.

AIS SART: The AIS SART has a unique, factory-programmed identifier. In an emergency, the coded signal with the GPS position (from the internal GPS receiver) is transmitted on the AIS frequencies 161.975 and 162.025 MHz and all ships with an AIS receiver on board can receive this signal. AIS messages 1 and 14 are sent.
According to the international GMDSS regulations, the AIS-SART will be approved as an alternative to the 9 GHz SART from February 2010.

Coding of the AIS-SART according to international regulations:
- "970 xxxxxx" AIS SART, message 14 means: SART active
- "972 xxxxxx" AIS MOB, message 14 means: MOB active
- "974 xxxxxx" AIS EPIRB, message 14 means: EPIRB active

Radar SART: The Radar SART is a 9 GHz X-band radar transceiver and was developed to support rescue workers from the air, on water or on land, in accordance with IMO regulations and GMDSS requirements. When a radar signal is received from a ship or an airplane, the S4 Rescue automatically sends a response signal. This signal is clearly shown on the radar display in the form of a dashed line consisting of 12 points.
