EPIRBs & SARTs
McMurdo provides electronic safety products for the marine market. The range includes the Smartfind EPIRBs, the Fast Find series of PLBs, traditional radar SART and the newer AIS version, as well as a range of GMDSS VHF radios, NAVTEX and the new personal AIS Beacon. McMurdo have a long history of supplying high quality emergency equipment to the commercial shipping, IMO and SOLAS markets. The SmartFind EPIRB range continues this tradition with the most compact, technically advanced and robust unit to date. The non-hazardous battery makes shipment quick and easy ensuring that vessels are not unduly delayed, no matter where they may be, when a replacement unit is required. Smartfind EPIRBs are available in a manual bracket or a SOLAS approved automatic housing. A SART is a 'search and rescue locating device' designed to assist in survivor craft location during search and rescue operations. The SART is primarily intended for fitment by SOLAS vessels under carriage requirement rules. SOLAS fitting rules differ depending on type and size of vessel and survival craft. In general, at least one search and rescue locating device is carried on each side of every passenger and cargo ship over 500 gross tons. Smaller SOLAS classified vessels are required to carry at least one search and rescue locating device. The SART should be stowed on board in a location where it can be rapidly placed in any survival craft. Once activated, the SART may be suspended inside the survival craft or mounted in an elevated position using the integrated extending pole.
