Smartfind G8 GNSS AIS auto

Smartfind G8 GNSS AIS auto


  • World’s first convergence of 406 and AIS
  • Faster alert detection
  • Greater location accuracy
  • Four search and rescue frequencies

McMurdo SmartFind EPIRBs include innovation as standard with ruggedized base, easy service battery, MEOSAR compatibility and compliance with the new United States Coast Guard emergency hands free transport mandate. The additional false activation protection and multiple self-tests also offer total user confidence. Coupled with an unparalleled marine heritage, commitment to quality and a history of innovation, customers know they can trust McMurdo when their lives are at risk. 

The G8 AIS is the first EPIRB to have standard 406MHz, 121MHz & GPS capabilities AND include AIS for localised rescue. This combination is a result of new technology but also new attitudes to AIS as a search and rescue tool, plus the realisation that accelerated alert detection and location accuracy will save even more lives. This technology partnership will also help reduce demands on the Search & Rescue authorities as it should help vessel owners  detect and resolve accidental activations through visibility of AIS signals. 

SmartFind E8/G8 Auto-Housing 

A fully protective, spring-loaded enclosure, the auto-housing automatically deploys and activates the EPIRB when it is submerged between 1 - 4m. The SmartFind G8 automatic release-housing incorporates fixing points which ensure previous McMurdo auto-housing units can be retrofitted with minimum impact when upgrading your vessels EPIRB.
