  • Latest Asia-Pacific Win Builds Regional Momentum

Orolia, through its McMurdo brand, the most trusted name in emergency readiness and response, announced today that the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) have selected McMurdo's Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR) ground system to support Singapore search and rescue missions.

This initiative will deliver the latest Search and Rescue Satellite-aided Tracking (SARSAT) technology to the Singapore Search and Rescue Region, providing accurate, reliable data for search and rescue crews to locate people in distress within minutes, thereby minimizing the time spent in distress conditions.

As part of the MEOSAR ground system contract, McMurdo will deliver a six-channel Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Local User Terminal (MEOLUT) system, including hardware, installation, systems integration, testing, commissioning, training and program management services. The contract also includes delivery of McMurdo's PRISMA MCCNet, which provides a complete Cospas-Sarsat commissionable Mission Control Center; and PRISMA RCCNet, a command and control platform for SAR incidents.

"Singapore has always envisaged adopting new technologies to enhance its search and rescue system and leveraging the MEOSAR system's capability to detect beacons more quickly," said Chris Loizou, Chief Business Development Officer for Orolia. "McMurdo is proud to continue its 12-year relationship with Singapore in providing the latest search and rescue technology to help save lives."

McMurdo is the global leader in MEOSAR satellite technology and the only provider of end-to-end solutions for search and rescue, from distress beacons to satellite ground infrastructure to mission control centers and rescue coordination centers. Half of the world's MEOSAR satellite ground infrastructure has been installed by McMurdo, as well as the manufacture of 25 percent of the world's 500,000 registered beacons.
