Workshop on Galileo Search & Rescue

  Thursday, 2 June 2016        14:00 - 18:00        Room: Amazon


Search and Rescue (SAR) operations involve locating and helping people in distress. They can be carried out in a variety of locations including at sea, in mountains or deserts, and in urban areas. Beginning in 2016 with the launch of Initial Services, Galileo will help SAR operators respond to distress signals faster and more effectively while also lowering their own exposure to risk. This workshop will bring together beacon manufacturers and other industrial and research players involved in SAR operations. Upcoming opportunities for R&D funding will be addressed.

Topics covered will include:
