It is a MOB detection system based upon 121.5 MHz signal transmissions from the included MiniB transmitter that would be worn by an on-deck crew during a watch. The RDF allows one to determine a heading to the MOB and, based upon signal strength, approximate range. It is older technology compared to AIS transmitter systems but it does work.
