Tadiran Spectralink is a major player in designing, developing and marketing state-of-the-art Search and Rescue (SAR) systems for a variety of applications, based on field-proven concepts of operation and incorporating leading edge technologies.
Spectralink began focusing on Search and Rescue (SAR) systems long before these became featured items in the press. Very few companies in the world have comparable expertise and experience in the development, production and supply of increasingly advanced systems that answer to the demanding requirements of today and the needs of tomorrow.
The combat-proven ASARS (Airborne Search And Rescue System), consisting of the advanced PRC-434G/SV [or PRC-434G/CS] Personal Survival Radio (PSR) and the ARS-700G Airborne Interrogator and Guidance Suite (AIGS) [or the DDU-700G Digital Data Unit], enables rescue forces to carry out safe and accurate, one-pass pickup under the most severe combat conditions. This is accomplished using an advanced single-burst interrogation/response protocol. Sophisticated range and direction measurement techniques, with full 360 coverage and up to 200 km operational range, enable the system to accurately pinpoint the downed crew´s position from safe distances, with final approach accuracy within a few meters.
First-pass pickup, automatic bailout activation, multiple operating frequencies, fallback voice communications, and a supplementary beacon mode for interoperability with other SAR systems, are standard features of the system. ASARS is easily installed in all helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.
