The Kannad Marine Rescuer 2 is a 9GHz X-band search and rescue transceiver (SART) designed for assisting air and sea ship or survival craft rescue operations in accordance with International Maritime Organization and Global Maritime Distress and Safety System requirements. When a radar signal is received from a ship or aircraft, the S4 automatically transmits a response signal, which clearly identifies the survival craft on the radar screen by means of a stream of 12 in-line dots.
The Rescuer 2 SART offers proven reliability. Extremely simple to use, it can be operated even with gloved or wet hands. Its compact design makes it ideally suited for packing in liferafts or as a carry-off device according to regulations specified by the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea.
Available from Survitec in USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand only. For all other SART and EPIRB products please see the McMurdo range.
