JOTRON Tron 45S
How the Tron 45S/SX saves lives?
When you activate the Tron 45S/SX, it starts transmitting vessel identity to the geostationary and polar orbiting satellites equipped with COSPAS/SARSAT transponders. The satellites forward the signal to a Ground Receiving Station (LUT) where also the position will be calculated and transferred to a Mission Control Centre (MCC). The necessary demands will be sent to the right Rescue Control Centre (RCC) which co-ordinate the rescue operation. The Search and Rescue Forces (SAR) bring the people in distress to safety.
