Orolia Maritime reveals new PLB with Return Link System for 2020

Orolia reveals details of the next evolution in life-saving technology, the FastFind ReturnLink PLB with Return Link System (RLS) capabilities. Orolia has worked closely with the European GNSS Agency (GSA) on the Galileo satellite system since being selected as the lead on development of next-generation search and rescue (SAR) distress beacons. The new FastFind ReturnLink transmits the user’s unique ID and GNSS location via the global network of Cospas Sarsat search and rescue satellites, and uses Galileo’s Return Link Service to transmit a return signal back to the user’s device to confirm the alert has been received and location has been detected. The PLB displays a blue light to inform the user that search and rescue professionals are aware of their situation and location and that they are not alone.
