Kannad Marine was named the winner of a 2012 Chuck Husick Marine Technology Award for its SafeLink R10 Survivor Recovery System.

The annual awards, started by Ocean Navigator magazine and named in honor of the magazine’s late contributing editor, recognize advancements in marine technology for recreational voyagers.

“We are honored to receive this award and delighted that the SafeLink has been further recognized for its innovation and technology within the marine safety sector following the awarding of the Pittman Innovation Award earlier this year,” Ross Wilkinson, global sales director of parent company Orolia Ltd., said in a statement.

The SafeLink R10 SRS is a personal Automatic Identification System device, designed to be worn and activated to assist in the location and recovery of people in difficulty at sea.

It is worn on a life jacket and, once activated, sends structured alert messages, GPS position and a special identity code to AIS receivers, providing fellow crewmembers with the information they need to locate the person in difficulty and effect a speedy recovery, greatly increasing the chances of rescue.
