Today the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) have selected McMurdo's Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR) ground system to support Singapore search and rescue missions. Singapore's sea and air search and rescue capabilities have been enhanced with its investment in a new medium-altitude earth orbit search and rescue (MEOSAR) ground system, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said in a statement on Monday (Jul 24).
The FLIR M500 is a cooled multi-sensor maritime camera that can detect targets of 15km or more. Traditionally the core of all FLIR recreational systems are uncooled. This new development allows skippers to see long-range targets with exceptional clarity due to its ability to detect very small temperature variations
Half of the world's MEOSAR satellite ground infrastructure has been installed by McMurdo, as well as the manufacture of 25% of the world's 500,000 registered beacon
