The Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 provides peace of mind on land or at sea allowing you to alert global emergency services of your location at the push of a button.
Once the emergency button is pressed your PLB, your location will be sent to a rescue coordination centre via satellite. This SOS is then diverted to emergency services near to your location to aid rescue. The location will be continuously sent for up to 24 hours.
The Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 comes with a flotation case to allow the device to floatation in a marine environment.
Unlike most satellite enabled notification devices, the Ocean Signal rescueME PLB1 requires no monthly or annual subscription, making it one of the most cost effective GPS enabled emergency beacons available for long term use.

Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.
All Personal Locator Beacons sold by Orbital Satcom are pre-programmed with the US country code. Whilst they will function anywhere around the world, the first authority to be contacted in an emergency situation would be NOAA with whom the PLB would be registered. Please contact us if you wish to have your PLB shipped with configuration for use in a country other than US.
This Ocean Signal PLB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search & Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.
Please note that PLBs will not work underwater and should be used in a canister if you intend to carry at a depth exceeding the maximum depth stated in the technical specification.
