Thrane & Thrane Announces SAILOR Touch Screen AIS

SAILOR quality for new black box, touch screen AIS Class A.

Thrane & Thrane – a Cobham plc company – has announced during SMM 2012 in Hamburg that in 2013 it will launch its first standalone AIS Class A transceiver for merchant and offshore vessels. The forthcoming SAILOR 6280 AIS System is of the black box type and will be operated via a new 7” touch display, enabling flexible installation and straightforward operation.

“Alongside the brand new SAILOR 5051 AIS-SART, which we are launching at SMM, the SAILOR 6280 AIS System represents Thrane & Thrane and the SAILOR brand’s entry into the AIS arena,” comments comments Casper Jensen, VP Maritime Business Unit, Thrane & Thrane. “SAILOR brings with it a reputation of high quality and reliability, which we have ensured is carried over to our new AIS products.”

The established high quality design, manufacturing and materials that have positioned SAILOR communication solutions as de facto industry standards in many technology and maritime sectors promises high performance on basic parameters, such as sensitivity, immunity, and blocking in the new SAILOR 6280 AIS System. In parallel, Thrane & Thrane is developing a strong feature set, designed to provide safe and flexible operation based on reliable AIS data.

Thrane & Thrane has pioneered the use of touch screen bridge equipment with the SAILOR 6006 Message Terminal, which is part of the industry leading SAILOR 6000 GMDSS Series. The new touch display for the SAILOR 6280 AIS System is a natural progression of this, offering intuitive, familiar control. The system also features a large number of inputs and outputs, ensuring that it can be integrated with common bridge systems, including VHF radios and ECDIS.

More information on the new SAILOR 6280 AIS System will be available in the new year. To learn more about the Thrane & Thrane range of GMDSS, satellite and radio communication systems, visit the Thrane & Thrane SMM stand #407 in hall B6.
