SAILOR SART II
All products from the SAILOR product programme are designed for the rough conditions at sea and the SAILOR SART II is no exception. The SAILOR SART II is small and easy to use, offering safety in critical situations.
The SAILOR SART II is a 9 GHz X-band self contained, waterproof radar transponder intended for emergency use at sea. It has been designed for assisting rescue operations in accordance with IMO, SOLAS requirements.
SAILOR SART II is used to locate a survival craft or distressed vessel by creating a series of dots on a rescuing ship’s radar display.
When in standby mode the SAILOR SART II is triggered by any X-band radar within a range of approximately 8 nautical miles. The SAILOR SART II automatically transmits a response signal which is swept across the complete radar frequency band, and clearly identifies the survival craft.
The signal is made up of a stream of 12 in-line dots. At some point in each sweep, the SAILOR SART II frequency will match that of the interrogating radar and will produce a response on the radar display, thus a line of 12 dots equally spaced by about 0.64 nautical mile will be shown.
Once activated, the SAILOR SART II will remain in standby mode for over 96 hours.
A SART will only respond to a 9 GHz X-band (3 cm wavelength) radar. It will not be seen on S-band (10 cm) or other radar.
