A Southeast Asia search and rescue authority has selected Orolia to deploy their Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking (SARSAT) solution.
Orolia, through its McMurdo brand, is supporting the contract through a Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) partner local to the region.
This next generation technology solution will provide access to the Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR) satellite system, improving accuracy and response times for search and rescue teams throughout the Southeast Asia region.
McMurdo will deliver a four-channel Medium-altitude Earth Orbiting Local User Terminal (MEOLUT) and an advanced Rescue Coordination Center system.
The MEOSAR-capable solution will handle the distribution and management of critical search and rescue data, including SARSAT distress beacon data.
The system supports rescue planning and coordination functions to assist persons in distress.
"Pairing the MEOSAR satellite capability with McMurdo's advanced positioning and timing search and rescue technologies will provide the fastest speed of detection and best location accuracy possible today to save even more lives." said Chris Loizou, Chief Business Development Officer, Orolia.
McMurdo has won a contract by US Army to provide working prototypes of a custom personnel recovery device (PRD) that will enhance Soldier Search and Rescue Efforts. As a militarized personal locator beacon (PLB), the PRD will be a component of the Army's Personnel Recovery Support System (PRSS), to alert and notify if a soldier has become isolated, missing, detained or captured, the company announced Tuesday
