The rescueME EPIRB1 provides peace of mind with an impressive 10 year battery life. The world's most compact EPIRB can always be on hand, as its small size allows it to be easily retained within its manual bracket or placed in an emergency grab-bag or life raft. A simple protective tab over the operating keys prevents inadvertent activation, yet allows for easy operation when required. The rescueME EPIRB1 also features two high brightness strobes to maximise visibility in low light conditions.
When activated, the rescueME EPIRB1 transmits your position and your unique ID to a Rescue Coordination Centre via satellite link. This information is then forwarded to the relevant local Search and Rescue services.
To assist with search and rescue, a homing signal is transmitted on 121.5MHz, which is received by equipment fitted to both sea and airborne rescue craft.
