Rescue Positioning Beacons
The SAR Datum beacons are designed to be dropped from aircraft into water to mark a position during air/sea rescue operations. SAR Datum buoys are manufactured in multiple frequencies and modulation tones to allow a number of these beacons to be in operation at the same time.

KTI has ceased operations. Battery replacement, re-coding and other services are no longer available. Warranty claims can only be processed via your retailer. Most Self-Test problems arise from incorrect product testing. For Self-Test instructions please refer to the instruction manual or our Q&A pages. The Cospas-Sarsat system is not controlled by beacon manufacturers – your KTI beacon remains fully compatible with the Cospas-Sarsat system after KTI factory closure.
