Our state of the art products include Personal Locator Beacons (PLB), a personal electronic transmitter used to alert rescuers that there has been a life threatening man over board (MOB) situation with a need to be rescued. When activated, the PLB sends out a signal on either a 406MHz frequency or Local Area System using 121.5MHz, VHF DSC and/or AIS. Often used in addition to other MOB protection equipment such as life jackets (PFD) or survival suits, PLB’s perform a critical function in the MASLOW of survival during an MOB situation.
