McMurdo Group—MEOSAR's Search & Rescue Program Is The Focus (SATCOM—Webinar)

[SatNews] The next generation “MEOSAR” program will revolutionize COSPAS-SARSAT Search and Rescue systems—proven systems which have helped to save five lives per day since 1982.

The new MEOSAR (Medium Earth Orbit Search and Rescue) system is currently in the Testing and Development stage and scheduled to go fully operational in 2018.  Yet many people affected by the search and rescue ecosystem know little about the exciting improvements MEOSAR will bring to the industry. MEOSAR’s technological advancements will enhance distress beacon detection rates, improve location accuracy and reduce emergency response times to potentially save even more lives.

Join the McMurdo Group for the second in their three-part series to learn about this new system and how it will improve Search and Rescue. Participants will be taken through a brief review of the COSPAS-SARSAT search and rescue ecosystem, an overview of MEOSAR and how it differs from the current satellite systems in place and a discussion of how MEOSAR will potentially impact you!  

We recommend you register, even if you cannot attend live, for a link to the recorded webinar. Plus, all registrants receive a free MEOSAR Overview after the event!
