Second Generation Search and Rescue
The satellite-based Cospas-Sarsat search and rescue system has assisted with the emergency rescue of more than 35,000 lives worldwide since introduction in 1982. A second generation of this system is currently under development, promising to significantly improve detection rate and localisation accuracy. However, in an emergency, the system’s performance is often compromised due to interference and atmospheric effects, leading to false detections that waste valuable resources. Projects in this area aim to provide novel techniques leading to faster, more reliable, more accurate, and more cost-effective search and rescue operations using techniques like multi-user detection, beamforming and advanced signal processing algorithms.
