Search And Rescue Transponder
9 GHz Search and Rescue Transponder
All products from Thrane & Thrane's SAILOR product programme are designed for the rough conditions at sea and the SAILOR SART II is no exception.
The SAILOR SART II is small and easy to use, offering safety in critical situations. The SAILOR SART II is a 9 GHz X-band Radar transceiver and has been designed for assisting rescue operations in accordance with IMO, GMDSS requirements.
When a radar signal is received from a vessel or aircraft, the SAILOR SART II automatically transmits a response signal, which clearly identifies the survival craft on the radar screen by means of a stream of 12 in-line dots. Once activated, the SAILOR SART II will remain in standby mode for over 96 hours.

Lightweight Actuation Transponder
The output from the LAT can be configured to provide multi-width and multi-pulse electrical outputs to suit a wide range of requirements. A rugged underwater connector ensures reliable activation.
The LAT is remotely controlled from the surface using a low-cost deck unit supplied with a dunking transducer and 10 metres of cable. The deck unit is used to program the acoustic identity of the LAT from several thousand available and then test the unit prior to deployment. Once in the water, the deck unit can measure ranges to the transponder and after sending a secure actuation command, relocate the transponder.
LATs are also compatible with Sonardyne's ROV-Homer and Homer-Pro target relocation systems. Deployed at a point of interest, the LAT can be interrogated, weeks or years later, to provide range and direction guidance to a ROV pilot or diver wishing to home back on to it
