    Important Information Regarding the Purchase of a Class B AIS:
    When you are ready to place your order, you will need to complete the AIS Static Data Programming Log.

    This required form must be sent to Defender Industries via e-mail or faxed along with a copy of your MMSI registration before your order can be processed. Our fax number is 860-701-3432.

    Because each transponder can only be programmed once with your personal MMSI number, orders CAN NOT BE CANCELLED AND ARE NOT RETURNABLE after orders have been placed.

    The Digital Yacht AIT1500 is designed specifically to bring the benefits of Class B AIS to smaller vessels, it uses a high sensitivity internal GPS antenna to save on space and cut down on installation time. Simply connect to power and a plotter, plug in a VHF antenna and you're in business.

    • Ideal for fitting on smaller vessels and tenders
