McMurdo S4 Rescue SART
Designed to be stored in a survival craft or as a carry off device, the rugged S4 Rescue SART is buoyant and waterproof to a depth of 10m. When it detects a radar signal from another vessel or aircraft, the S4 Rescue SART’s 9GHz X-band Radar transceiver will automatically transmit a response signal which will appear on the other vessel’s radar display as a series of 12 dots, pinpointing your location. An LED and buzzer indicates when the S4 has detected a radar signal and transmitted a response.
The S4 will only transmit when it detects an incoming radar pulse - after 15 seconds it will drop to standby mode, conserving battery life and ensuring operation in excess of 96hrs.
Once activated the S4 Rescue SART may be suspended inside the survival craft or mounted in an elevated position using the integrated extending pole.
McMurdo S5 AIS SART
Stored in a quick release carry off bag, the rugged S5 AIS SART is buoyant and waterproof to a depth of 10m. When activated, the S5 transmits an alert message along with your ID number and current GPS location which will trigger an alarm on all AIS equipped vessels within VHF range. The inbuilt GPS provides accurate location information to rescuers enabling them to quickly locate you. The non-hazardous battery has a six year storage life and enables the S5 to transmit continuously for in excess of 96hrs.
Easy to operate and deploy and the high visibility buoyant carry off bag can be wall mounted or packed inside the survival craft. It features a shoulder strap making it easy to carry in the event of an emergency evacuation.
