Ocean Signal SafeSea S100 SART
The Ocean Signal SafeSea S100 Search and Rescue Transponder (SART) is a dedicated radar transponder that complies with IMO SOLAS regulations.
The SeaSafe S100 SART is designed to assist in the rescue and recovery of liferafts and survival craft. When switched on, the SART remains in a standby mode until automatically activated by an X Band Radar sweep from any vessel in the vicinity. The SafeSea S100 transmits a series of pulses which are displayed on the ship’s Radar as a line of dots, providing a bearing to the survival craft.
The activation controls are identical to those on the safe sea E100 EPIRB, making use by unskilled operators much easier
- Superior battery life – even at -20°C
- User-replaceable battery

SARTs are required on all IMO SOLAS vessels on international voyages:
