Class B AIS Transponder with SOTDMA

The Furuno FA70 is a Class B+ SOTDMA AIS Transponder that provides the ability to track other vessels in congested waterways, in heavy fog or other conditions where visibility is limited. The black box style does not include a screen as it connects via NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 to a compatible display to show information such as vessel name, call sign, position, course, and speed. AIS’s unique ability to display vessels that are out of line of sight is a great safety feature for anyone on the water!

Using the FA70 couldn’t be easier. Simply tap on an AIS target to reveal vessel information or view AIS targets better with the addition of a compatible Furuno Radar (sold separately).

The FA70 Transponder is a Class B+ Black Box system. SOTDMA guarantees an AIS time slot which ensures your vessel will be visible in congested areas. The FA70 has an internal GPS (WAAS) and an internal VHF splitter allowing for the use of a single AIS antenna for both AIS and VHF performance.

For the ultimate situational awareness while on the water- the Furuno FA70 is a great choice!
