    Seven aircraft have been reported missing since 2000. This begs the question, “How is it possible to lose a plane in this day and age of advanced technology?”

    In this webinar thought leaders in the aviation community will share their views on the state of the aviation search and rescue industry including:

    • An overview of the various aviation-related search and rescue technologies and processes used today.

    • The challenges that exist to “find” the aircraft, to “predict” potential emergency situations, and to “communicate” for assistance while in the air before tragedy occurs.

    • A peek into the future convergence of today’s fragmented aviation systems and technologies including an update on various initiatives currently underway to improve aviation safety going forward.

    Join us as we share our ideas on how the aviation industry will evolve into a more comprehensive, connected, integrated aviation emergency “ecosystem” that will prevent emergencies, protect assets and, ultimately, save more lives.

  • AIS Man Overboard - The Andrew Taylor Story AIS Man Overboard - The Andrew Taylor Story Andrew Taylor, Survivor and Sean McCrystal, Product Marketing Manager, McMurdo Recorded: Apr 21 2015 55 mins
    “My Man Overboard training and equipment kept me alive, but my AIS saved my life.” – Andrew Taylor

    On Sunday, March 30, 2014, Andrew Taylor, an amateur sailor taking part in the 9th Clipper Round the World yacht race fell overboard into the icy waters of the North Pacific Ocean… 2000 miles from the nearest land… an hour away from neighboring racing yachts… no other vessels within 1000 miles. Andrew was eventually rescued by his own racing yacht, the “Derry Londonderry Doire”, thanks in large part to an innovative search and rescue device developed by McMurdo and based on Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology.

    You may have watched his dramatic ordeal featured on BBC, CNN and a number of global news outlets. Now hear Andrew Taylor tell his own story and learn more about the technology that saved his life. This presentation will include:

    • An overview of AIS and its emergence as a search and rescue complement to EPRIBs and PLBs
    • The history behind McMurdo's development of the world's first AIS MOB device and the future of AIS In Search and Rescue
    • A live account of Andrew Taylor's amazing rescue story
    • Live Q&A

    We look forward to your attendance!

Speakers will share their rescue stories, share life-saving strategies and provide insight into the future of the Search and Rescue ecosystem.

    Participants will be taken through the rescue stories of bold adventurers Sarah Outen and Scott Blackford Scheele, be given an in-depth look into into the extensive role of a Rescue Coordination Center and learn about innovative improvements to COSPAS-SARSAT on the horizon.
  • MEOSAR:  Are You Ready for the Next Generation in Search & Rescue Satellite? MEOSAR: Are You Ready for the Next Generation in Search & Rescue Satellite? Jerry Nardi, Senior Scientist at Techno-Sciences and Mickey Fitzmaurice, NOAA SARSAT Systems Engineer Recorded: Apr 24 2014 55 mins
    The next generation “MEOSAR” program is expected to revolutionize COSPAS-SARSAT satellite-based Search and Rescue systems – proven systems which have helped to save 5 lives per day since 1982. MEOSAR’s technological advancements will enhance distress beacon detection rates, improve location accuracy and reduce emergency response times to potentially save even more lives. Join us for the second in our 3-part series to learn about this new system and how it will improve the Search and Rescue chain of events. Jerry Nardi and Mickey Fitzmaurice are world-renowned MEOSAR experts who will be offering a very interesting presentation!
  • The 5 Critical Stages of the Search and Rescue Ecosystem The 5 Critical Stages of the Search and Rescue Ecosystem Jeremy Harrison, President and Management Director of McMurdo Group and Lt. Bryan Cantfil, U.S. Coast Guard Office of SAR Recorded: Mar 27 2014 58 mins
    The COSPAS-SARSAT satellite-based Search and Rescue system has helped to save 35,000 lives since 1982. While the term “search and rescue” is fairly self-explanatory, the actual process – what occurs between initial distress signal and the actual rescue – is quite complex. Join us for Part 1 of our 3-part series for a down-to-earth look at the 5 critical stages of COSPAS-SARSAT and how this can impact your world. Participants will not only understand what happens when an emergency beacon is triggered in the middle of the ocean or set off from a remote mountainside, but they will also get a glimpse into the SAR product innovations and technological advancements on the horizon.
