The ARTEX PLB works with the only officially recognized worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). As this satellite network is funded by governments, there are NO CHARGES or Subscription Fees to use this service in the event of an emergency.
World Wide Range
No matter where you go the ARTEX PLB will work. Units purchased in the US can be registered with NOAA and in case you are in an emergency overseas NOAA will notify your local SAR agency of the distress signal.
When activated, the ARTEX PLB transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services nearest to you are promptly notified of your emergency and initiate the Search & Rescue process.
The ARTEX PLB features a unique mounting clip and a flotation pouch: The PLB can be firmly attached to the pouch with the provided lanyard to enable it to float. These materials are proved and tested to endure all types of environments.
