MEOLUT Antenna and Ground Station

The MEOLUT-600 is a Local User Terminal that processes 406MHz distress beacon alerts over next-generation Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) Satellites providing rapid notification to Search and Rescue Authorities worldwide. It is part of an integrated and comprehensive Search & Rescue (SAR) solution from Honeywell Global Tracking.

  • Reliability

The MEOLUT-600 offers exceptional uptime, accuracy and reliability for SAR operations worldwide.

  • Fast New Medium-Earth Orbit Technology

MEOLUT-600 bridges existing geostationary and low-earth orbit infrastructure and can confirm the location of an emergency alert within seconds.

  • Flexible

Fully configurable, making it possible to precisely match the needs of customers.

  • Efficient

Provides fast position confirmation of alert beacon signals, especially in geographies where fewer satellites may be seen, leading to more efficient use of SAR resources.

  • COSPAS-SARSAT Standards Compliant

Meets and exceeds COSPAS-SARSAT requirements

  • Capabilities

Supports ELT(DT) and RLS beacons; Supports First and Second Generation beacons

  • Seamless Integration

Ease-of-integration into existing SAR systems saves time and money.

Product Details

The MEOLUT-600 automatically monitors alerts from a growing constellation of MEO satellites and uses advanced signal processing to pinpoint the location of an alert signal in its coverage zone.
