Now, here it is !!

The NEW ACR Nauticast B AIS - Class B, Automatic Identification System Transponder

  • Small in Size
  • Plug and Play
  • Transmits and Receives
  • Water Resistant
  • Remote SRM Switch
  • GPS Receiver


The ACR Nauticast-B transponder is a plug and play AIS solution. Enjoy the benefits of the AIS system knowing larger commercial vessels are aware of your position increasing your personal safety while navigating at sea.

Unlike receive only AIS devices which do not transmit vessel information to surrounding traffic, the Nauticast-B system allows you to virtually participate in neighboring vessels maneuvering activities for collision avoidance. Announce your identity, position, speed and course over ground to oncoming traffic allows for increased security that you will be seen in low visibility conditions.

Avoid not being seen because of extreme weather conditions or busy vessel traffic environments. Generate a safety distress message to surrounding AIS vessels, base-stations, and SAR teams. All in all, it is a horizon expanding experience; especially in combination with an electronic chart system.

                                     Important Information !

Each ACR Nauticast B transponder sold in the U.S.A. MUST be programmed by the seller prior to sale. Once the order is confirmed and the unit programmed the order may NOT BE CANCELLED nor the unit Returned.

Required Programmable Information includes:

Vessel Owner
Vessel Name
MMSI Number
Vessel Call Sign
Vessel Type
GPS Antenna Location

A form will be provided when order is placed.

A "MMSI Number" is a Maritime Mobile Service Identity Number. If a vessel is required to have an FCC / VHF License, the MMSI number is assigned with the FCC / VHF License. If an FCC / VHF License is not required, the MMSI number is the same number that is issued for used with the newer DSC, Digital Selective Calling, integrated VHF radios.

To obtain an MMSI number, please click on this link to access for MMSI Number Assignment Instructions.

For further information about the international MMSI system one can go to the USCG Navigation Center.



Size it Up!
The Nauticast's alluring measurements are 7.8" (D) x 6.2 (W) x 1.84" (H) (18 x 15.8 x 4.7 cm). It's a lightweight at 13.2 oz. (375 g) and won't take up much space mounted under the dash. Position the Safety Switch (1" x 1") on your console for easy access in case of an accident.

Plug and Play
Inventive technology at its best! Three sockets suffice to connect power, sensors, and antennas; and initial transponder operation is up and running within minutes.

Plug & Play system includes: Class B AIS Transponder, GPS antennas, data/power cables and remote Safety Message Switch.







Safety Related Message / Stealth

The remote SRM button saves the precise coordinates of the incident and immediately generates a safety distress message to surrounding vessels.

Or configure the SRM switch to allow you to operate in stealth mode only, receiving AIS data and not sharing for added security to avoid being noticed by pirating vessels.

Data cable directly interfaces with your chart plotter or laptop.

ACR AIS products undergo stringent quality testing and with thousands of AIS transponders on the market, the Nauticast brand is a tried and tested system which already gained substantial market penetration in this young market.
