R500NGi Intelligent AIS & GPS Receiver with WIFI

The R500NGi is a powerful and flexible AIS & GPS receiver with WiFi, interfaced to a ARMv8 microcomputer. Designed for coastal monitoring applications, the R500NGi is capable of filtering, processing and forwarding AIS and GPS data across a network, and be locally monitored by installing compatible chart plotting software on the device.

The unit has both WiFi and Ethernet connectivity, as well as 4 USBports and an HDMI connector for a monitor display. What makes theR500NGi different from other receivers is that it can be deployed in anyAIS network using proprietary software specific to that network and is shipped without software installed as a development platform. Comar also offers bespoke data management solutions as optional extras.

The R500NGi is designed for use by the commercial market and usesComar’s well proven and internationally specified high sensitivity dualchannel parallel AIS receiver and commercial grade GPS receiver.

The R500NGi from Comar Systems: Quite possibly the most versatileAIS & GPS receiver available today.
