by Taline Tateossian on 5 Jun 2007
After a lengthy delay, Australia’s GME has announced the international approval of their MT410 series Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs).
Utilising the same ground breaking Australian technology as the MT400 EPIRB, the MT410 and MT410G AccuSat™ Personal Locator Beacons are the latest exciting extension to GME’s growing family of innovative safety products.
Warwick Clancy, GME’s Marketing Manager: 'The delay in securing COSPAS SARSAT approval has been incredibly frustrating for GME, its dealers and distributors, we do apologise for the delays, they really were outside of anyone’s control. However and most importantly I want to thank all of our partners for their patience over the past few months and now look forward to delivering a truly world class product to customers in Australia and overseas.'
GME’s AccuSat™ PLBs, are available in two formats, the MT410 a standard 406/121.5 MHz beacon, or the MT410G featuring an integrated 16 Channel GPS receiver for sub -100 metre satellite detection accuracy.
Clancy added: 'GME has been designing and manufacturing emergency beacons in Australia for over 30 years. In that time literally hundreds of lives have been saved in Australia, Europe and right around the world. With today’s cutting edge microprocessor technology, GME is able to provide the outdoor enthusiast with a practical 406MHz PLB solution that is not only affordable, but provides enhanced peace of mind for all should an emergency occur and assistance is required.'
