SmartFind M10
& M15 AIS
Offering high performance, at a low cost, the SmartFind
AIS electronics range brings important safety
advantages of the Automatic Identification System (AIS)
to a wider range of vessels than ever before.
Ideally suited for vessels, where the complexity of an
AIS Class A Transponder is not necessary, the McMurdo
SmartFind M10 AIS Class B Transponder and SmartFind
M15 AIS receiver range will receive and process all AIS
targets within 20 miles of the vessel, typical.

McMurdo SmartFind AIS Electronics Range
The SmartFind M10 AIS Class B Transponder transmits vessel position information and has a built-in
GPS receiver to determine the vessels position, speed and course; and once this is combined with other
navigational information, it is automatically transmitted without any user interaction.
Engineered for flawless integration with a wide range of navigation systems, dedicated chart plotters and PC
or Mac based software programs, the SmartFind AIS range have advanced interface capabilities, supporting
both standard NMEA0183 interfaces as well as USB connectivity, they offer integration with the vessel’s other
navigation equipment. The SmartFind M10 AIS Class

The SmartFind M10, also has an SD card slot, which
can be used as a data logger, enabling the capture
of all messages - to assist in system and safety
monitoring, including incident investigation. A
4Gb card will store approximately 30 day’s worth
of data. The ‘Silent mode’ option, allows the user
to temporarily stop the broadcast of identifying
information on occasions where either privacy or
security is required.
