Peruvian Navy selects Honeywell Next-Gen Tracking Technology for Search and Rescue Operations
June 24, 2021
Honeywell recently announced an agreement with the Peruvian Navy to provide its Middle Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR) ground station system, which includes satellite antennas, rescue control systems, software and computer equipment.
By leveraging this network of antennas and satellites, the Peruvian Navy can more precisely locate distress signals from emergency beacons.
The Navy is tasked with monitoring and performing rescue operations and track and locate important assets including downed planes and missing ships for nearly 6.3 million square kilometers of the Pacific Ocean.
“Our global tracking solutions help governments and emergency response teams save hundreds of lives around the globe each year, and our MEOSAR system can help the Peruvian Navy save lives by quickly identifying aircraft, ships and people in distress regardless of how remote their location is,” said Kenneth Deville, general manager of Honeywell’s Global Tracking business.
Honeywell’s Global Tracking business has more than 35 years of experience delivering end-to-end search and rescue and high-value asset tracking solutions. Customers include the Canadian Department of National Defense, Greek National Search and Rescue Coordination Center and the Hellenic Coast Guard, and the European Space Agency's Galileo search and rescue program.
