Simrad Rolls Out New V3100 AIS

Posted by Michelle Howard

The new Simrad V3100 Class B Automatic Identification System (AIS) is designed to meet the needs of light commercial vessels and workboats operating in high-traffic areas.

Complete with Self-Organized Time-Division Multiple Access (SOTDMA) technology and increased output power to provide improved transmission reliability and range, the new V3100 is a cost-effective package for vessels that require greater performance than standard Class B AIS, but do not require a full Class A solution.

The Simrad V3100 incorporates the same SOTDMA technology found in Class A systems. This transmission technology allows the AIS solution to negotiate a regular transmission timeslot with other AIS units in range, facilitating more frequent and reliable position updates in areas with high AIS activity - such as crowded harbors and waterways. With a maximum transmission power of five watts - more than double the output power of standard Class B systems - the V3100 allows a vessel to be detected at greater range and provides more reliable transmission to satellite-based AIS receivers.

This 'black box' AIS solution is designed to work with Simrad multifunction displays and other NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 connected marine electronics.

The Simrad V3100 is now available and priced at $1,099.
