A New Annual Record for the Global Leader in Search and Rescue Technology
Lanham, MD, October 17, 2018 – TSi, the world leader in Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking (SARSAT) solutions, announced that it has prepared a record nine search and rescue systems across five continents for commissioning through the Global Cospas-Sarsat Satellite Search and Rescue System.
TSi has been leading the development of global search and rescue programs for nearly thirty years, reaching a major milestone with the world’s first operational Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR) system in 2011, and maintaining the leading market share position in global MEOSAR system installations ever since. To date, 75 percent of the Earth’s surface is monitored by TSi’s MEOSAR systems.
Cospas-Sarsat conducts an annual commissioning process for regional search and rescue systems that are being constructed or upgraded worldwide. This year, TSi has prepared a record nine global search and rescue systems for commissioning across five continents, which include five ground-based Local User Terminals (LUTs) and four Mission Control Centers. These new, lifesaving search and rescue systems are in line to be commissioned in North America, Australia, Europe, Asia and Africa.
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.
“At TSi, we’re proud to achieve a new milestone in the decades of technology innovation that we’ve brought to global search and rescue operations,” said Oroloia’s former VP of Satellite Search and Rescue Systems, Paul Zweers. “We are the leading manufacturer to commission next-gen MEOSAR systems, and this record number of global systems in line for commissioning reflects our ongoing commitment to delivering critical technology solutions, anywhere in the world.”
