EPIRB PLB and SART
An Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon or EPIRB is used to alert search and rescue services in the event of an emergency. It does this by transmitting a coded message on the 406 MHz distress frequency via satellite and earth stations to the nearest rescue co-ordination centre. A Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) is an electronic device that automatically reacts to the emission of a radar. This enhances the visibility on a radar screen. SART transponders are used to ease the search of a ship in distress or a liferaft. All GMDSS vessels up to 500 ton must carry at least one SART.
