The device will operate on the basis of the international search of the “COSPAS-SARSAT”, responding to distress signals from emergency special buoys. The developers will combine the capabilities of search engines with special features of complex information support of internal Affairs bodies.
MOSCOW, 21 Oct. The Ministry of internal Affairs of Russia from 2016 will have the opportunity to equip their employees with personal satellite navigation devices that let if you work in dangerous conditions, in difficult terrain, sound the alarm and summon help or to organize the evacuation of the injured, said Deputy head of centre JSC “Russian space systems” Michael Cirocco.
The operation of these devices will be based on the international search and the system “COSPAS-SARSAT”, responding to distress signals from emergency special buoys, which are equipped with all aircraft and many marine vessels in the world. There are also personal trackers — they are actively using, in particular, tourists-thrill-seekers, going on a dangerous journey.

As communication channel is used exclusively by satellite, so the signal transmission is not dependent on cellular networks or power radios.
