Seven Star SARTS

What is a SART (Search and Rescue Radar Transponder)? It is a very simple 9 GHz receiver/transmitter which provides a position. The fundamental function of a SART is to indicate its position by producing range and bearing information on any 9 GHz radar screen. This information is displayed as a series of dots extending radially outwards from the location of the transponder. The series of dots represents a range of approximately 10 nautical miles. This indication is an internationally accepted signal for search and rescue operations.

The SevenStar SART is a unit that is easy to ship due to its non-hazardous battery pack. This battery pack is also extremely easy to replace, taking only a minute or two.
