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.
