MFAIS circuits are AIS AtoN devices integrated inside our LED lanterns.

The AIS AtoN transponder provides automatic information on the GPS position of the marine aid to navigation (AtoN); thus making easy the location and identification of buoys, beacons and lighthouses on a vessel or an AIS Base Station chart.

Thanks to its minimum energy consumption, those circuits can be integrated with our self-powered lanterns.

Its modular construction allows its installation subsequently to the purchase of a MSM lantern.

MFAIS complies with IMO, IEC, ITU and IALA Standards.
