Simrad Yachting - a leader in the design and manufacture of world-class marine navigation, autopilot, radar, communications and fishfinding systems - announced today the new Simrad® RS40-B, the first VHF marine radio with AIS transmit and receive capability.

Featuring a sleek design with wireless handset capability, removable fist microphone, Class D DSC functionality, built-in GPS and a Class B AIS Transceiver, the Simrad RS40-B takes VHF marine performance to another level.

The integrated Class B AIS transceiver in the RS40-B can receive position data from other vessels like the original RS40, but is the first VHF marine radio capable of sharing its position with nearby AIS-equipped vessels, improving collision avoidance in crowded waterways. Position data of other vessels is clearly viewable on the Simrad RS40-B screen or can be overlaid on top of a chart or radar through a compatible multifunction display over NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000®.

Scheduled to start shipping in June 2019, the Simrad RS40-B VHF radio is priced at $1,099.

For more information on the RS40-B and accessories, or the entire line of Simrad marine electronics, please contact 800-324-1356 (toll-free) in the USA, 800-661-3983 (toll-free) in Canada, or visit simrad-yachting.com
