The air deployable housing is made of 2 floatable plastic parts and is kept together with 2 straps. A soluble tablet will fix the straps until the whole unit is submerged into water.
The AIS S.A.R.T. locator unit easyRESCUE with its antenna folded, is mounted inside the housing. By dissolving the tablet, the housing is opened, the antenna unfolds and the unit starts transmission by water activation. A weight at the bottom will keep the easyAIRDROP-RESCUE in upright position for best possible radiation.
With the long antenna radio range will be 9 to 12 nm to a vessel. SAR airplanes or helicopters will receive the signal in a distance of up to 80 nm by 500 feet flight level.
What is necessary to run the easyAIRDROP-RESCUE?
The easyAIRDROP with the internal AIS S.A.R.T. unit is ready: „grab and go“.
To receive the transmitted signal, an AIS capable chart plotter or PC software is required to display the rescue relevant data.
