SURVIVOR-LOCATOR SYSTEMS FOR DISTRESSED VESSELS
The purposes of this study are to analyze casualties involving vessels which have been unable to transmit a distress call or message; to discuss the inadequacies of the current distress communications system; to determine whether certain vessels should be required to carry automatic emergency position-indicating radio beacons (EPIRB's); to consider other possible distress communications systems; and to make recommendations which will help prevent unnecessary loss of life when seamen must abandon ship on short notice.
