Smart & Connected
An intelligent boat can see what you can't. It predicts collisions
with other vessels and knows when someone falls overboard. It knows when your
anchor is dragging. It would tell you something is wrong, whether you're
onboard or ashore. Cortex. The brain of your boat.
The smartAIS Advantage
smartAIS proactively alerts you of potential collisions, anchor
drag and man overboard situations. smartAIS consumes very low power and
continuously alerts even if your power intensive MFD or smartphone is switched
smartAIS combines GPS, AIS and heading data with smart logic to
proactively warn you of collision risks.
Clearly see the highest risk vessels. When using a Cortex handset,
smartphone, or tablet, make trial maneuvers to see a simulation of where and
when your paths will cross.
Sleep soundly or explore with abandon knowing that your boat is
exactly where you anchored it.
By combining your position and heading, Cortex will determine if
your anchor drags. If your boat moves outside your anchor swing radius the
alarm will sound on Cortex handsets and your smartphone. Receive alerts while
ashore via the Cortex Monitor App on your smartphone.
Want to know if water depth, wind speed or direction changes while
anchored? No problem, Cortex will keep watch and alert you.
Man Overboard (MOB)
When Cortex detects an AIS MOB activation it immediately sounds
Compatible with all AIS MOBs, you will see where the MOB was first
activated along with continuous updates to its location, bearing, and range.
Get clear information and take the best course.
Label AIS MOB devices with crew names for easy identification.
Pressing the dedicated MOB button activates a trackback mode on
all handsets and marks the MOB on NMEA 2000 connected MFDs.
Advanced SOTDMA Technology
SOTDMA is the latest AIS technology with 5W power output, making
your boat visible over a longer distance.
With faster and more frequent transmissions of your position to
other vessels, you'll be safer, especially at speeds of over 14 knots.
Connect via WiFi
Receive alerts on your smartphone, tablet, or smartwatch anywhere
Connect up to 10 WiFi devices to receive and manage alarms, view
AIS information and instrument data.
Integrate Cortex to your NMEA 2000 network and use your mobile
devices to view information your instruments provide.
10Hz GPS Update Rate
With 10Hz GPS updates, your vessel position is more accurately
When you connect other devices to your Cortex GPS using NMEA 2000
or NMEA 0183, all onboard equipment benefits from our superfast GPS.
Integrated No-Loss Splitter
Our integrated no-loss splitter allows you to share a single antenna
with another VHF and delivers optimum performance for both your VHF and AIS.
Low Power Consumption
With low input power, you can keep Cortex always on, so you are
always visible and always watching. Receive alerts without the need for
