                     MARITIME EPIRB'S

  • Since its inception in 1982 the Cospas-Sarsat System has provided emergency data that contributed to the rescue of more than 20531 people in the 5752 search and rescue (EOD) operations.The system carries out radio monitoring in the frequency range 406,0-406,1 MHz and 121.5 MHz, where the signals of distress beacons transmitted. On February 1, 2009 Signal processing stops on 121.5 MHz.

  • The geographical position of the emitting distress beacons is determined automatically by the system with an accuracy of 2-3 km for the beacons operating at 406 MHz, and up to 20 km for the beacons operating at 121.5 MHz.In accordance with international and national requirements set to the Russian courts are subject only beacon models are approved by Russian Maritime Administration and have the corresponding certificate.
   Each ARB-406 should be formed from the digital message, which is transmitted in emergency situations.The main data contained in the report
   of the beacon is the registration code of the country of the vessel or ARB, and its identification number.
  • All ARB-406, installed on ships sailing under the flag of the Republic of Kazakhstan, shall be subject to mandatory registration with the base of the International COSPAS-SARSAT with 436 code (cospas-sarsat.org) .
      For register EPIRB in IBRD requires the following information :

  1. EPIRB's model and serial number
  2. Type of protocol
  3. Country code
  4. Programmed 15-HEX ID
  5. Type and name of the vessel
  6. Port of registry
  7. Crew ( quantity )
  8. Call sign
  9. IMO
  10. Shipowner
  11. Shipowner address
  12. 24-Hours responsuble person
  13. Company e-mail for the receiving registration confirmation

In accordance with IMO guidelines peiodicheskaya re beacons should be provided, in order to keep up to date state of data contained in the registration database.Periodic re-ARB installed on ships sailing on the Russian flag, is done once in two years. If you change the login information of any previously registered beacon, a beacon to be an extraordinary re-registration.Emergency beacons installed on ships, intended to be used only in real emergencies. Receiving signals ARB-406 system COSPAS-SARSAT is the basis for carrying out the rescue operation.Any switching-on ARB-406, is not associated with the emergency and distress signals are classified as unauthorized.If such a switch has occurred, you should immediately stop radiation ARB-406, by any means and ways to communicate with the nearest or any rescue co-ordination center and cancel the false alarm ARB-406, with no penalties or other sanctions to the guilty will not be applied.Otherwise, persons who have committed unauthorized transfer of parcels disaster ARB-406, and will not call such parcels, compensate all the costs of the deployment of search and rescue operations, and, in addition, a fine may be imposed on them.Before registering the beacon must be properly programmed. Programming (coding) in accordance with the documents of the COSPAS-SARSAT system, maintenance and checking of the ARB-406 deals with qualified staff of our company in onshore conditions with appropriate instrumentation.The content of each test, including self lifting device (hydrostat), replacement batteries, and maintenance of fact shall be entered in the form of ARB-406.The content of each test, including self lifting device (hydrostat), replacement batteries, and maintenance of fact shall be entered in the form of ARB-406.Satellite ARB-406 must be inspected every 12 months.

McMurdo E5 Smartfind 406 EPIRB



       Description :

  • Designed to meet the requirements of both the commercial and  recreational user, the E5 features transmits on 406 and 121.5MHz and  includes a high brightness LED light which helps rescue services locate  you at night or in poor visibility.
