The SPORTPRO+ is designed to operate with the COSPAS-SARSAT international search and rescue system. The unit can be activated automatically by immersion in water, or manually by following the activation instructions printed on the unit.
Boasting a 6 year replaceable battery life, the SPORTPRO+ EPIRB range offers two models - one features a manual deployment bracket, the other an automatic deployment housing (see inset picture below) which also includes a hydrostatic release unit.
The built in GPS receiver ensures that an accurate position of a casualty is relayed to the rescue services. This can in turn improve the speed of recovery by updating the position of the beacon at regular intervals.
