If you have customers who own or operate a commercial vessel in US waters (ports, rivers, lakes, and seas) they are likely to be affected by this new rule.
The United States Coast Guard is publishing a new rule which will require most commercial vessels operating in US waters to fit and operate a USCG certified AIS transceiver like the Digital Deep Sea CLA1000.
On 23rd December 2014, President Obama signed the final rule documentation relevant to the new USCG AIS Rule. We expect it to be formally published in the coming weeks whereupon those vessels affected shall have a limited window of 7 months to install an AIS Class A transceiver to be operating legally. Currently only vessels over 300GRT on an international voyage are required to have an AIS Class A transponder. It is likely this ruling will impact on 40,000 vessels.
List price on the CLA1000 is $2799 and we have attractive dealer programs in place to support you with this opportunity
