    PLBS are Upgraded to Include Galileo Satellites

    Orolia’s McMurdo FastFind 220 and Kannad SafeLink Solo Personal Location Beacons have been upgraded to include the Galileo Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), the EU’s global satellite constellation.

    The multi-constellation receivers work with a wider range of satellites to provide increased global coverage.

    Location detection is enhanced and more precise due to the beacons receiving coordinates from the Galileo satellite network in addition to the existing GPS network.

    “The combination of both Galileo and GPS GNSS capability means that our customers will benefit from coverage that spans from the North to the South Pole”

    Chris Loizou, VP of maritime at Orolia.

    “We work tirelessly to push the boundaries of product innovation and ultimately, to give people the best chance of being rescued in an emergency situation.”

    Chris Loizou, VP of maritime at Orolia.

    The PLBs are the first of a series of new solutions coming from the EU-funded Helios project, led by Orolia, which has been set up to leverage the power of the new satellite system.
