Electronic position indicating radio beacons (EPIRB)

KTI EPIRB range

Emergency Positioning Indicating Radio Beacons or EPIRBs are compact, buoyant and portable emergency signalling devices specifically designed to transmit a radio distress signal to alert emergency authorities throughout the world of a need for rescue. Once activated, an EPIRB will continuously transmit a specific encoded radio signal on 406 MHz capable of detection by COSPAS/SARSAT satellites throughout the world whilst simultaneously transmitting a 121.5 MHz homing signal.
