McMurdo is extending its world leading Search and Rescue Ecosystem with the launch of the SARBE CommLink at the Dubai Airshow. SARBE CommLink is a next-generation digital wireless intercom system that helps emergency response/rescue teams accelerate time-to-rescue with superior audio quality, long-distance communications range and unique programming capability.

With SARBE CommLink, the McMurdo SAR ecosystem - which has traditionally included distress beacons, satellite connectivity and mission control and rescue coordination systems - is now extended to include a military-grade communications solution as part of rescue operations.

Rescue helicopters/aircraft, their crew and support teams can now use the next generation McMurdo communications tool in mission-critical applications across the globe including medevac, offshore transit, disaster recovery and SAR.

SARBE CommLink has been specifically designed for use in hazardous missions and environments. Rescue team members can maintain direct contact with remote support personnel, including hospital, law enforcement and other emergency staff, via SARBE CommLink's long-range communications, multi-group functionality and helmet-based design. This helps to streamline the entire rescue process, resulting in faster casualty analysis, expedited medical response and more lives saved.

"The launch of SARBE CommLink is a major milestone towards realising McMurdo's journey to become the global leader in emergency readiness and response systems that prevent emergencies, protect assets and save lives," said Remi Julien, McMurdo President.

"Throughout our history we have provided search and rescue agencies worldwide with the products and systems to identify, locate and monitor emergency situations. Now, we can provide rescue operators - whether in the military or other government agencies - with an innovative communications tool that saves precious time and will be a core element of the actual rescue, one that is backed by over 70 years of SABRE brand military industry excellence," Julien added.
