An advanced OMEGA Position Location Experiment (OPLE) has been developed for global search and rescue applications. The experiment will demonstrate the feasibility of instantaneous alarm and position location by using a relatively inexpensive, battery operated, three-pound package. This package can transmit the alarm and position through a synchronous satellite to a search and rescue station in less than three minutes, in an environment of 50,000 to 100,000 subscribers drawn from the maritime, aircraft, recreational communities, and others.
