McMurdo Fast Find 220 GPS Personal Locator Beacon (PLB)
The McMurdo PLBs is the world’s first to utilise Galileo’s capabilities and are the first in a series of new solutions coming from the EU-funded Helios project, led by McMurdo, which was set up to leverage the power of Galileo.
McMurdo multi-constellation capable beacons work with a wider range of satellites, offering increased global coverage and supporting accelerated rescue. Location detection is more precise because the beacons receive coordinates from both Galileo and the GPS constellations, and signals can even be detected in difficult locations, even in high sided locations, such as cliffs and canyons.
The FastFind 220’s electronics design was upgraded in 2019, offering accelerated location detection with the duel GNSS capabilities — GPS & Galileo receivers. Within minutes rescuers are alerted to your situation, and receive regular position updates. Finally, emergency services can hone in on your beacon’s 121.5 MHz transmission to find you.
Explore the world with peace of mind. If you find yourself in a remote area without any other form of communication, activating your FastFind 220 will summon emergency assistance.
