Emergency beacons, vital equipment in emergency situations... But what exactly does the new SARBE 6-406G Evo RLS offer? What technological advances sets it apart? How does this beacon improve military safety? Safran Electronics & Defense takes a look at this innovation just a few days before the EUROSATORY trade show.

When soldiers find themselves in critical situations, every second counts. The slightest deviation in data accuracy, availability and reliability can lead to mission interruption, or in the most dramatic scenario, human tragedy. This is why Safran Electronics & Defense has developed a specific range of Personal Locator Beacons (PLB) and Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELT), enabling soldiers in distress to send a distress signal from anywhere on the planet, on land, at sea or in the air. 
SARBE beacons are used by armed forces in over 50 countries, testifying to their reliability and efficiency.

SARBE 6-406G Evo RLS: a high-performance personal locator beacon

Compact and lightweight, the SARBE 6-406G Evo RLS personal locator beacon can be easily integrated into uniforms, life jackets, ejector seats and survival bags, etc., to accompany armed forces operating in friendly or enemy territory.

Activated manually or automatically in the event of an abnormal situation or distress, it transmits precise user identification and location data in real time to the appropriate authorities, facilitating rapid and effective search and rescue missions.

RLS functionality: a revolution in rescue operations

The SARBE 6-406G Evo RLS represents the culmination of Safran's innovation and expertise in personal locator beacons with its new Return Link Service (RLS) functionality. RLS enables the user to receive confirmation of receipt of the distress signal, offering invaluable peace of mind in the event of an emergency. This instant confirmation is crucial, as it lets users know that their call for help has been heard and that assistance is on the way, which can be vital in critical situations.
