Chesapeake Marine Training Institute is pleased to announce it now offers the Datrex Ocean Signal rescueME World’s Smallest Personal Locator Beacon in its recently launched online ship store.
Features of the beacon include that it’s 30 percent smaller than most personal locator beacons and fits inside a life jacket.
It includes a retractable antenna, seven-year battery life and warranty, one candela brightness strobe light, 66 channel GPS receiver and floating pouch for belt or general storage.
“Wherever you are, at sea or on land, rescueME provides the reassurance that emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button,” according to Datrex. The world’s smallest personal locator beacon “can be operated with a single hand even in the more challenging situations.”
It transmits a personal location and ID to a rescue coordination center via a satellite link, according to Datrex.
