ACR Electronics will present complete and concise information on the various types of distress signaling devices
on the marine market today in support of the National Safe Boating Council’s “Saved by the Beacon” outreach and
education campaign promoting beacon use. Strategically mapping the distances in which VHF radio vs. satellite
phones vs. cell phones vs. 406 MHz beacon technology benefit’s start and stop.

As technology becomes more affordable and more efficient, it is important for boaters to understand what devices are best suited for their aquatic emergency action plans. An explanation on having the proper distress communications devices on board will benefit boaters, boating professionals and maritime safety advocates. It will also create a cohesive understanding of how these devices can assist in more efficient search and rescues. This will be defined with market breakdowns and statistical success for those who use the correct methods of technology.

Best practices on responsible ownership and proper maintenance of communication devices will conclude this
presentation.

  4. 4. • Mobile Phones • Apps • Saved contacts • Iridium Satellite phonesRange: Worldwide • Cost: $1500-$2500 plus $1.49 per minute plus $20 per month • SEND – Satellite Emergency Notification Devices • Uses commercial satellite systems rather than the COSPAS-SARSAT satellite system.
  5. 5. 406 MHz Beacons 406 MHz Beacons EPIRB PLB Flotation Floats in an upright position to transmit. Performs best while floating. Not required to float. Floating versions only float so it can be retrieved if dropped in water. Unit needs to be held out of the water or attached high on a PFD for best transmission. Transmission Requirements Minimum of 48 hours at temperatures down to -4°F (-20°C). Longer in nominal Temperatures . Minimum of 24 hours at temperatures down to - 4°F (-20°C). Longer in nominal Temperatures. Activation Either manually activated in or out of the bracket OR Automatically activated when out of its bracket and in the water. Manually activated. Strobe Light Required to have strobe light. Not required. Some newer versions have flashing LED Strobes. Mounting Options Mounted in a bracket (automatic or manual deployment), or carried in a ditch bag. Worn or carried on a person. Registration Registered to the vessel. Registered to the person.

How The System Works 1.406 MHz Distress Call 2.Search and Rescue (SAR) satellites forward distress signal to Earth stations 3.Ground stations forward the distress call to Mission Control Centers (MCC) 4.The MCCs alert the closest Rescue Coordination Center (RCC) 5.The RCCs call emergency contacts and dispatch SAR teams 6.SAR teams arrive at the scene!
