Petrel X7

Submersible AIS-Compatible Beacon
Petrel X7

The Petrel X7 is an AIS-compatible recovery beacon that operates analogous to an AIS Aid to Navigation (AtoN). Designed for short range tracking and recovery, the Petrel X7 automatically displays its location on nearby vessels AIS chartplotter when within sufficient range. With no additional devices, software, or data plans required, the Petrel X7 is the most convenient recovery beacon on the market.

Xeos’s 18 years of expertise designing oceanographic recovery beacons has enabled us to create the worlds first submersible AIS-compatible beacon. This revolutionary technology will allow the beacon’s location to appear directly on the vessel navigation system so ship captains can retrieve the asset in a more efficient manner.
