Abstract:

High technology small business Techno-Sciences, Inc. in partnership with Submarine Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (SEPIRB) manufacturer Ultra Electronic Ocean Systems Inc. proposes the development of next generation, self powered SEPIRB. Many innovations in the design of the beacon and powering are proposed including improved hardware, various software configurations appropriate for the next generation COSPAS-SARSAT system, as well as, a unique set of energy harvesting mechanisms that will help the device achieve long shelf life. The beacon will be easy to maintain and can be deployed using standard operating procedures. In Phase I, low power electronic beacon board was manufactured and tested and energy harvesting solutions were investigated. Phase II focuses on development of prototypes and initial testing. Later phases will involve launch testing and integration into the fleet.
