    It is excellent news that ACR finally gets to sell its ResQLink AIS PLB, and especially timely with the Miami Show next week.

    I got to see this AIS PLB closeup at METS — along with its twin Ocean Safety RescueMe PLB3 model — and will have a lot to say about them on Panbo soon. The short story: I think that you’re looking at a major breakthrough in marine safety.

    ACR’s GlobalFix V5 AIS EPIRB with Return Link Service and NFC app is also just approved and will ship very soon:

    This technological upgrade has entered the arena just in time for me, given that I just bought an older Bluewater boat which must be refitted-upgraded with modern electronics.

    This multifunction PLB provides the kind of Swiss Army knife functionality that I will be looking for in all of my 2023 sailing electronics.

    I suggest that the next upgrade cycle leverage the Starlink Constellation to add even more lifesaving functionality.

    The Large flat Starlink Antenna is a technological deal breaker right now, but ACR can move the technology forward by Partnering with Starlink to innovate on this front.

    Starlink would likely be amenable to working with your engineers to help Save Lives at sea. Perhaps Musk would supply you with his new battery tech to extend your EPIRB, and PLB run time out to 30 days.

    Make it so!
