State-of-the-art Maritime Transponders and Automatic Identification System (AIS) Solutions

Nauticast A2 and B2 AIS Transponders with Full US Approvals


Both the Nauticast A2 and the Nauticast B2 are fully USCG and FCC approved in their respective class and are perfect choices to meet the US AIS carriage obligation that is in force since 1 March 2016. Most self-propelled vessels of 1,600 or more gross tonnes have an AIS carriage obligation in US waters since then.

Smaller vessels may use a class B device, larger vessels and vessels with an SOLAS obligation will have to fit a class A device.

Nauticast B2 is the perfect choice for smaller vessels and fishing boats to fulfill their obligation. While reliable in operation, versatile in supported configurations and ship integration the complete set Nauticast B2 (P/N 3001001) is a highly economical solution. It comes with antennas, cables and software, is easy to install and operate. Its technology builds on many years of experience with the highly successful ACR/Nauticast B-300.
