Search and Rescue

hr smith search and rescueThe need for finding downed aircraft and aircrew has existed since the early 1900’s, and individuals who have found themselves lost and in trouble have existed for far longer, thankfully these days we have expert Search and Rescue (SAR) teams. These invaluable teams, head out in all weathers to assist those in distress, but they need precise data to find people and recover assets. HR Smith group have worked to find tracking solutions for all types of SAR aircraft and personnel.

With the continuing development in regulations, the industry is aware that we are only as strong as our weakest link, with a need to rapidly and accurately initiate and direct SAR activity in the event of an incident. 

The broad spectrum of scenarios which can require a search and rescue response, inspired us to develop products with dual purposes, and that can be used internationally, utilising the trusted COSPAS SARSAT system. From our deployable FDR/CVR ELT through to our Distress Tracking ELT, we are proud to continue to strive for new answers to old problems.
