Maritime safety communication – search and rescue services
In 1970 Jotron developed and installed the world’s first Distress Radio Beacon on board a ship. Today, Jotron is a world leading manufacturer of high quality EPIRBs that comply with all international regulations to meet the demands of the commercial fishing, leisure, marine and offshore industries. Jotron SARTs (search and rescue radar transponder) are designed for use in search and rescue operations. This radio device identifies the exact location of the distress, indicated on the radar X-band display of any nearby ships, aircrafts and SAR vessels. Since 2004, Jotron has produced Automatic Identification System (AIS) which sends ship information to other ships and to shore. In 2019, Jotron launched the world’s only emergency VHF AM handheld radio, designed and approved according to the IMO MSC.80(70).
