An EPIRB forms part of the GMDSS mandated equipment package required by law for all commercial vessels over 300 tons, however many non-mandate vessels and leisure boats choose to carry an EPIRB to improve safety and they have been responsible for saving hundreds of lives since they have been introduced.
Designed to meet the requirements of both the commercial and recreational user, the McMurdo SmartFind E8 EPIRB features transmits on 406 and 121.5MHz and includes a high brightness LED light which helps rescue services locate you at night or in poor visibility. Location is determined within 5km (3 miles) by measuring the doppler shift of the EPIRB’s signal through the Cospas-Sarsat network. Once in the area, rescue services are then able to pinpoint your precise location using inbuilt 121.5Mhz homing transmitter. The McMurdo SmartFind E8 EPIRB also features faster alert detection on the 406MHz frequency though compatibility with MEOSAR, a new search and rescue infrastructure which will be rolled out by Cospas Sarsat. When fully deployed the aim is: Determine beacon location within 5km, 95% of the time, within 10 minutes.
