SARSAT Low Earth Orbiting LUT (LEOLUT)
McMurdo SARSAT LEOLUT
The McMurdo SARSAT LEOLUTs are state-of-the-art systems for acquisition of Cospas-Sarsat distress beacon data relayed by satellites in low earth orbits. In use around the world, the McMurdo SARSAT LEOLUT has proven to be the most accurate and reliable SARSAT ground station.
Using industrial computer technology and Microsoft operating systems, the McMurdo SARSAT LEOLUT is extraordinarily effective. The LEOLUT uses redundant processors and state-of-the-art receiver technology to achieve excellent detection and processing performance.
