MEOSAR – building on three decades of SAR technology

Search and Rescue technology is fundamental to safety of life at sea, and satellite distress systems have helped to save tens of thousands of lives in the last three decades. New developments in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites may help to improve these systems significantly, and make the seas even safer.
