The Intelligent Boat

SOTDMA smartAIS transponder with remote vessel monitoring and control

Smart and connected

An intelligent boat can see what you can't.

It predicts collisions with other vessels and knows when someone falls overboard.

It knows when your anchor is dragging.

It tells you something is wrong, whether you're on board or ashore.

Cortex. The brain of your boat.

Loaded with features

Low Power Consumption

With low input power, you can keep Cortex always on, so you are always visible and always watching. Receive alerts without the need for power-hungry MFD's.

Galvanic isolation

Protect your Cortex and connected equipment from electrical shorts and damage from ground loops.

Fully waterproof

Submersible for 30 minutes (IPx7), Cortex can be safely mounted anywhere on board.
