McMurdo Group, Kannad, BOATRACS—Get Enlightened Regarding The Search + Rescue Chain Of Events (Webinar)

[SatNews] Do you know what happens when an EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) is triggered in the middle of the ocean or a PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) is set off from a remote mountainside?
The COSPAS-SARSAT satellite-based Search and Rescue system has helped to save 35,000 lives since 1982. While the term "search and rescue" is fairly self-explanatory, the actual process - what occurs between initial distress signal and the actual rescue - is quite complex. Join us for the first of our three-part webinar series  for a down-to-earth look at the 5 critical stages of COSPAS-SARSAT and how this can impact your world.  Being held on March 27th, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. EST, the host is McMurdo Group. Participants will not only understand what  happens when an emergency beacon is triggered in the middle of the ocean or set off from a remote mountainside, but they will also get  a glimpse into the Search and Rescue product innovations and technological advancements on the horizon.
