Saving Lives at Sea

Mariners in an emergency call “mayday” on the marine distress radio channel. This call should include important facts like the boat’s position. But often, the people in danger do not have the most important piece of information – the details on their exact position. In order to fill that gap, Rohde & Schwarz provides systems that eliminate the need for the “search” portion of “search and rescue” operations. These systems localize the origins of distress calls in real-time to dramatically increase the chances of survival for mariners in distress.

Along the U.S. coastline, as part of the “Rescue 21” project, more than 229 Rohde & Schwarz direction finders stand the watch, improving the U.S Coast Guard’s ability to locate mariners in distress. The R&S®DDF100M digital direction finders are remotely controlled and are operated within a wide network. Rescue 21 is operational along the entire Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts of the continental United States as well as along the shores of the Great Lakes, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands, covering more than 40,000 miles of coastline. Here the Rohde & Schwarz direction finders support the U.S. Coastguards search and rescue (SAR) and homeland security missions.
