How is a Man Overboard Alert (MOB) displayed on an AIS receiver?

How is a Man Overboard Alert (MOB) displayed on an AIS receiver?

SIMY's My-AIS beacon is a personal sea distress beacon. It is pre-programmed at the factory with a unique MMSI number, the first 3 digits of which are "972". All MMSI numbers that start with 972 are interpreted by AIS receivers as "man overboard" distress.

In the event of an alert detection, the AIS receiver then indicates a red cross, the GPS coordinates of the shipwrecked person and issues an audible alert. The MOB alert is therefore well regarded as a man overboard distress and not as a nearby vessel (collision alert).
