The JQE-103, a highly reliable life-saving compact float-free satellite
EPIRB incorporates new advancements in technology, enhancing search and
rescue within 'the golden day'.
To comply with GMDSS regulations vessels must carry a satellite EPIRB.
During critical situations the EPIRB will be released and activated, either
automatically or manually. Once activated, the EPIRB will transmit vessel
specific information on 406MHz that is passed, via satellite, to the RCC.
This information is used to commence SAR operations and with search aircraft
monitoring the 121.5MHz transmissions enables the EPIRB to be located.
Space Saving, Robust Design
The JQE-103 is a brightly-colored, lightweight, watertight and rugged
EPIRB, allowing it to be easily mounted on a bulkhead. Additionally, if a
situation occurs where it is required to throw the EPIRB overboard, the
hardened outer shell will remain intact after a drop onto the water surface
from a maximum 20 meter height.
