Tadiran Spectralink (Stand A835) has launched its latest peacetime search and rescue (SAR) personal locator systems at the show.

Company president Itzhak Beni says the civilian models are based on proven satellite communication and GPS technologies.

The primary differences between the company's combat and peacetime rescue systems are the frequency ranges and modes of operation, which allow the latter to be produced and sold at significantly lower cost, says Beni.

Tadiran Spectralink currently supplies its Airborne Search and Rescue System (ASARS) to numerous military forces worldwide. ASARS comprises the ARS-700 airborne rescue system, installed in the rescue aircraft, and the PRC-434A hand-held personal radio unit.
