1 Trusted for Life TM USCG AIS Mandate 3 rd December 10:30 am - 11:15 am

2 The AIS Mandate McMurdo Stand 2335 CEO McMurdo UK

3 McMurdo By the Numbers 25% Percentage of world s 406MHz beacons manufactured by McMurdo 5 of 6 3,000 Number of the largest US inland waterway companies using McMurdo In kilometers, world s longest contiguous coastal surveillance solution by McMurdo 20 Million 60% Number of transactions processed annually for McMurdo workboat and fishing customers Estimated market share percentages for McMurdo in military 1 and commercial beacon markets Number of lives saved using satellite-based SAR solutions since Military beacons outside of US 2 Source: COSPAS-SARSAT Bulletin, Sep 2012 Introducing McMurdo 3

4 McMurdo Group Saving Lives since 1952! The Future of Emergency Readiness and Response Begins with McMurdo 2013 First AIS Man Overboard (MOB) device approved for US and first MOB Alarm Notification System integrating beacons and fleet monitoring software 2011 First AIS MOB devices integrated into a life jacket 2011 First operational MEOLUT (Satellite Local User Terminal for MEOSAR) 2010 First 406MHz Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) to include an internal GPS and 406MHz antenna 2009 First compact Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) 2005 First PLB for use in the consumer market 1998 First Vessel Mgt. System used by a major US Fishery 1980 First prototype LEOLUT 1952 First military SAR beacons (SARBE) 4

5 What is AIS?

6 What is AIS Automatic Identification System AIS provides automated AIS communication from ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore, transmitting and receiving vessel, voyage and safety related information AIS Chart Display 6

7 Origins of AIS IMO Regulation 19 of SOLAS Chapter V Requires AIS to be fitted aboard all ships of 300 gross tonnage and upwards engaged on international voyages 7

8 AIS: Difference between Type A & Type B 10 8

9 Timeline and Growth 2002 IMO SOLAS Mandate IMO mandates vessels over 300GT on international voyages to fit Class A AIS by /7 AIS Standards Committee AIS Standards Committee publishes Type B specification resulting in wide scale installation of AIS for the first time 2010 European Union All EU fishing vessels over 52ft now have to have Class A ,000 vessels with AIS ,000 vessels with AIS 2015 USA Introduction of US AIS Mandate: All motorised vessels over 65ft using US inland waterways to have AIS by March

10 Mandate Questions

11 Vessel Impact? Class A Vs B? Trusted Solutions? McMurdo 11

12 Creating Operational Value from Mandated Technology

13 Looking Beyond Location Awareness AIS Mandate will greatly improve inland waterways location awareness Building on that investment with the inclusion of AIS MOB will bring equal benefits from Localised rescue capabilities Commercial workboat adoption of AIS MOB is growing in Europe and already an accepted SAR technology in the US McMurdo AIS Mandate and Operational Value 13

14 What is AIS MOB? Provide a means of location and tracking AIS MOB alerts a 4 mile radius to your man overboard incident Provide immediate notification to the parent or neighbouring vessels 14

15 How does AIS MOB Work? 15

16 How does AIS MOB work? Fishermen Sailors Workboats 16

17 Is AIS MOB an alternative to 406MHz PLBs? 17

18 Considering AIS or 406MHz 18

19 Development of AIS MOB

20 Origins of McMurdo s AIS MOB Originally designed for sportsmen pushing the limits of sailing, McMurdo s AIS MOB is now available to anyone on the water who wants localised rescue capability 20

21 Andrew Taylor s Clipper Rescue The Captain s View 21

22 Captain s View 'We started searching but I mean a needle in a haystack doesn t even describe what we were looking for.' Thank God for Andrew s determination and thank God for McMurdo s AIS MOB Sean McCarthy Skipper Clipper Round the world Race 22

23 Captains view AIS MOB

24 Recap of the Key Features of AIS MOBs Real time tracking GPS information Range 4 nm 24 hour operating life 7 year battery life Waterproof to 60M 24

25 Where Next for AIS MOB

26 Future SAR Technology? Integration with survival equipment Combining COSPAS SARSAT with AIS Redefining Automatic Deployment 26
