A revolution in marine technology that will change your VHF experience forever.
An intuitive touchscreen that is engineered for durability to withstand the rigours of the harsh marine environment.
Audio that's as loud as a train but clear as a bell.
The future of VHF is here.
Initiate direct calls (DSC) with other vessels by simply tapping the vessel on your handset. Initiate VHF calls to friends or quickly hail another vessel when every second counts.
Cortex is ergonomically designed for one-handed operation with quick touch control or navigation using the unique click-wheel.
Wet hands or wearing gloves? No problem. Cortex is submersible for 30 minutes (IPX7) and its touchscreen works perfectly with gloves or wet hands.
Zoom in to focus on a single vessel or out for a wider view of everything around you.
Enjoy crisp clear sound through an 85db speaker. Instead of ambiguous bells or tones, Cortex sounds the alarm with voice alerts that escalate until acknowledged.
Complete your Cortex with the Cortex H1P Portable Handset. Communicate from anywhere on board with up to 10 handsets. Locate a tethered handset wherever power is convenient. There's no need to run any wires to the Cortex M1.
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.
Be armed with critical information about vessels, AIS marks (AtoNs) and man overboard devices on your MFD, mobile or Cortex handset.
smartAIS proactively alerts you of potential collisions, anchor drag and man overboard situations.
smartAIS consumes very low power and continuously alerts even if your power intensive MFD or smartphone is switched off.
Safety at anchor
Safety for your crew
See your boat's status, receive alerts and control devices.
With built-in sensors, you can see twice daily updates of your boat's location, battery level, true heading and barometric pressure.
Connect to your NMEA network and monitor more - wind speed direction and water depth. The cortex acts as a router and also sends the data to your tablet or smartphone.
When your smartphone and boat have cellular access, you can see that your boat is safe and secure.
- Cortex V1 VHF with AIS incl. wired handset, expandable with up to 10 Cortex H1P handsets (for more than one handset order one and ask for the others by email)
- Cortex M1 AIS, which you can integrate into your network without a handset and output at the MFD (plotter), tablet or smartphone or additionally with a Cortex H1P handset to a full VHF station.
