Orolia has received US Federal Communications Commission and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, for its McMurdo SmartFind G8 AIS EPIRB.

The SmartFind G8 AIS distress beacon supports each of the four frequencies used in the search and rescue process: 406 MHz for global alert transmission, GNSS for location positioning and 121.5 MHz and AIS for localised tracking and recovery.

“Regional approval for Orolia’s latest maritime search and rescue technology follows our ongoing contract to supply Personal Locator Beacons to the US Coast Guard,” said Mark Cianciolo, Orolia vice president, Americas. “We’re dedicated to developing state of the art technologies that help keep people safe while navigating our world’s waterways.”

The SmartFind G8 AIS comes either as a manual or auto variant that deploys automatically on a sinking vessel.

The multiple-frequency capability ensures a faster, more resilient search and rescue solution with superior positioning accuracy and greater signal reliability.
