ADVANCED OPLE FOR SEARCH AND RESCUE

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.
