Vesper Cortex - Out of stock - Alternative Available - Please enquire


The power of VHF and AIS combined.

Cortex is the world’s first VHF with high speed SOTDMA AIS transponder technology, making your boat visible to others. A built-in heading sensor tells other vessels your direction, helping them more accurately predict potential collisions. See critical information about vessels, AIS Aids to Navigation and man overboard devices on your MFD, mobile or Cortex handset.

At the heart of the cortex system is the M1 Hub. The M1 is a Full Class B SOTDMA smartAIS with out of the box monitoring that can be used as a stand alone AIS and Monitoring unit which can connect to your MFD or mobile device. With the addition of the Cortex handset, the M1 is then able to also act as a VHF providing crystal clear audio that’s as loud as a train but clear as a bell.

The Cortex Handset provides an an intuitive touchscreen that is engineered for durability to withstand the rigours of the harsh marine environment and is available in H1 Tethered and H1P Portable versions and you can connect up to 10 Cortex Handsets to a Hub
