S.701 SART

The S.701 SART (Search And Rescue Radar Transponder) from SevenStar Electronics Ltd approved, and has been specifically designed with life-raft fitment in mind, as well as conventional carry-off use, is capable of auto activation in life raft installations, and is the smallest SART available today. It is the principal means of homing in the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).

Its exceptionally low power consumption makes it unique, as it is the first SART that can use non-hazardous batteries – safer, cheaper and easier to ship, deploy and stock.

Its unique digital design brings new levels of sophistication, with guaranteed lifetime performance, reduced component count and increased reliability.

S.701  is also unique because the SART electronics remain totally sealed during the battery pack removal and refitting – it is impossible to damage or de-tune the electronics, or allow the accidental ingress of moisture.
