Digital Yacht have expanded their range of AIS products with the world’s first, fully self contained, Smart AIS antenna. The SmarterTrack ANT200 incorporates a highly sensitive dual channel AIS receiver into a waterproof antenna housing no bigger than a traditional GPS antenna.

Leisure users can also opt for a more simplified Class B transponder if they wish to transmit as well as receive their position information. The SmarterTrack ANT200 will decode both types of transmission
