The Intelligent Boat

  • SOTDMA smartAIS transponder with remote vessel monitoring and control

Smart & Connected

  • Predicts collisions with other vessels and knows when someone falls overboard 
  • Knows when your anchor is dragging and will tell you when something is wrong, whether you're onboard or ashore 
  • Cortex is the brain of your boat

The smartAIS Advantage

  • smartAIS consumes very low power and continuously alerts even if your power intensive MFD or smartphone is switched off
  • smartAIS proactively alerts you of potential collisions, anchor drag and man overboard situations

Collision Prevention

  • smartAIS combines GPS, AIS and heading data with smart logic to proactively warns 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

Anchor Watch

  • Sleep soundly or explore with abandon knowing that your boat is exactly where you anchored
  • By combining your position and heading, Cortex will determine if your anchor drags 
  • When 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
  • Cortex will keep watch and alert you about changes in water depth, wind speed, or direction while you are anchored

Man Overboard (MOB)

  • When Cortex detects an AIS MOB activation it immediately sounds the alarm
  • 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 onboard
  • 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 plotted
  • When you connect other devices to your Cortex GPS using NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183, all onboard equipment benefits from the superfast GPS

Integrated No-Loss Splitter

  • The 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 the Cortex always on, so you are always visible and always watching 
  • Receive alerts without the need for power-hungry MFDs

Cortex Will Get Smarter.

  • New features and capabilities are downloaded automatically to the Cortex Onboard app for easy updates to Cortex via WiFi whenever convenient

Remote vessel monitoring and control

  • See your boat's status, receive alerts, and control devices

Easy setup, no fee

  • With built-in sensors, you can see twice-daily updates of your boat's location, battery level, true heading, ambient temperature, and barometric pressure
  • Connect to your NMEA network and monitor more - wind speed direction and water depth
  • As long as your smartphone and boat have cellular access, you can know your boat is safe and secure 
  • No subscription, no hassle

Real-time monitoring and control

  • Subscribe to a Cortex Monitor Plan to receive alerts, see real-time information about your boat, and remotely control devices like lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration, or ice-makers
  • Whether you've left your boat, at anchor, or at the marina, know exactly where it is and what's happening onboard
