With the introduction of Automatic Identification System(AIS) functionality, Return Link Service(RLS)technology, and Near Field Communication(NFC) capabilities in one 406 MHz Personal Locator Beacon, the rescueME PLB3 represents a significant step forward in the evolution of PLB’s. The merging of 406MHz and AIS distress messaging effectively pairs both global and local rescue, thereby maximizing access to the most effective rescue resources available.
In addition, NFC capability provides users with the world’s first smartphone-connected PLB and the all-new Return Link Service feature provides users with the comfort in knowing that their distress message has been received and their location detected by worldwide Search and Rescue personnel. As a leading innovator in life-saving products for both professional and recreational use, Ocean Signal is proud to offer the PLB3. As the world’s FIRST Personal Locator Beacon to include AIS and the world’s FIRST PLB to include NFC, there’s no need to justify why the PLB3 should be your FIRST choice.

What do SKO think? Unfortunately this unit will probably be too long to fit in most PFD front pockets, however the hydration pocket on the rear is definatley an option for personal carry. On the plus side it removes the need to carry a seperate LED/Lazer flare/strobe as it’s all built into this one unit. For the first time it will intergrate with the European Galileo satalite system and will be able to let you know that a signal has been recieved and help is on the way, which could be life saving for morale if floating in the ocean.
