The McMurdo E5 SmartFind EPIRB is a 406 MHz EPIRB designed to operate with the COSPAS-SARSAT international search and rescue system. Once removed from its CARRYSAFE mounting bracket the unit can be activated automatically by immersion in water, or manually by following the activation instructions printed on the unit.
The G5 SmartFind PLUS has all the advanced features of the standard McMurdo E5 SmartFind EPIRB with the addition of an integral multi-channel GPS receiver. The addition of a GPS receiver ensures that an accurate position of a casualty is relayed to the rescue services. This can in turn improve the speed of recovery by updating the position of the beacon at regular intervals.
