World’s “Smallest” AIS Receiver

Don’t know whether that claim is actually true, but if you’re in the market for a small AIS (Automatic Identification System), I’ve written about them before, then have look at Jotron Electronics’ TR-2500 Universal Automatic Identification System.
“Weighing just 2.8 kg in one single unit with a panel sized similar to a standard VHF, the TR-2500 can be easily integrated with existing ECS, ECDIS or onboard radar systems. Alternatively, Jotron Electronics provides a software called AIS VIEWER for PC on a complimentary basis for graphic display. The robust and compact design, with a variety of mounting configurations, including desktop, header panel, flush or rack mounted, means a flexible, quick and cost efficient installation, be it as retrofit or on newbuilds.”

    A note from SeaCas!
    Dear Yme,
    The Jotron TR-2500 is a full fledged Class A transponder, not just a receiver.

    Why are the marine electronic manufacturers so slow in coming out with low cost AIS receivers when all the electronic software authors have added this feature to their latest product versions? Sounds like Standard Horizon, Furuno, Icom and the rest are asleep at their desks.

    Sorry, if I may make some clarifications. Jotron has 3 brands of AIS. TR-2500 (TxRx), RA-2500 (Rx only) and the Base station version can remember the name. All are quite similar is size and shape, and also portable.
