Two New SARSAT Nodal LGM-MCCs Commissioned
Lanham, MD, February 25, 2019 – TSi, the world leader in Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking (SARSAT) solutions, announced that its proven LEOSAR-GEOSAR-MEOSAR (LGM) Mission Control Center (MCC) solutions are now commissioned as Nodal MCCs in Spain and Australia, enabling global distribution of critical search and rescue information through the Cospas-Sarsat system.
TSi’s PRISMA MCC features world-leading satellite search and rescue technology with full LGM capability. It is the commercial solution of choice for the world’s most advanced search and rescue authorities, including Spain, Australia, Norway, UK and many others; and the only LGM solution successfully commissioned anywhere in the world to date.
With the successful commissioning of their Nodal MCCs, Spain and Australia will now be able to share critical information with the U.S. and France, providing worldwide coverage for global search and rescue. In addition, since they will be authorized to commission other MCCs in their regions, they will also significantly advance the Cospas-Sarsat MEOSAR program.
“We’re proud to support the world’s most critical search and rescue operations,” said TSi’s Director of SARSAT Operations, Steve Ludwig. “With TSi onboard, you can rely on proven solutions in critical environments where failure is not an option. Our PRISMA Mission Control Center systems are the only successfully deployed, Cospas-Sarsat commissioned commercial solutions available, meeting the highest standard for search and rescue support.”
TSi has been leading the development of global search and rescue programs for nearly 30 years, reaching a major milestone with the world’s first operational Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR) system in 2011, and remaining the number one market leader in successfully installing and launching all global MEOSAR systems ever since. To date, 75 percent of the Earth’s surface is monitored by TSi’s MEOSAR systems.
Through its TSi SARSAT division, the world leader in the design, development and installation of search and rescue ground-based infrastructure, they equipped these systems with the very latest search and rescue technology to increase response times and save more lives worldwide.
