PILOTLINK – A Sneak Preview

Our R&D team have been hard at work and we’ll be launching a new Digital Deep Sea product called PilotLink in May.  PilotLink is a Class A AIS wireless interface designed specifically for commercial pilots.  All Class A AIS transponders are fitted with a standard pilot plug connector.  PilotLink connects direct to this to gather AIS and GPS data from the ship’s system and allow it to be used with a range of popular apps such as iSailor from Transas and iNavX.  More details will be available in May but here’s a quick pic.

PilotLink is battery powered from a standard 9V PP3 battery.  Its also fitted with a USB power input connector so can be used with an USB type power lead or external USB battery. Battery life is around 15 hours from a PP3 but this can of course be extended by using the optional USB power packs.  PilotLink is around the size of a pack of cigarettes and its also available with a tough wrap around rubber cover as below
