Sealite, a manufacturer of marine aids to navigation, has introduced a mid-range lantern with a fully integrated automatic identification system (AIS) inside its body.

 
Sealite's SL-155 series are high intensity 6-13NM medium range marine lanterns. The compact single tier lantern features extremely low power consumption, minimal maintenance and now comes available in 2.5, 5 or 10 degree vertical distributions with an integrated Type 1 or Type 3 AIS.
 
When fitted, the AIS is encapsulated within the body of the SL-155 so no additional mounting or cables are required for a separate AIS unit. Supporting AIS Message 6 and Message 21, users can receive information such as operation status and positioning in accurate real-time messages.
 
With the physical lantern size unchanged, the all in one SL-155 unit is easier and cheaper to install than other AIS installations, and its small form size is a cost effective alternative to larger RACONs, commonly used for electronic marking of navigational hazards, the manufacturer said.
 
Suitable for a range of port and harbor solutions, the SL-155 with integrated AIS is the space saving solution for all AIS monitoring needs.
