A new type of lifesaving distress beacon the FastFind ReturnLink PLB utilises unique functionality generated by Galileo satellite constellations Return Link Service to send a signal back to the FastFind ReturnLink beacon confirming the users 406MHz distress alert has been received and Galileo GNSS location coordinates have been detected. The FastFind RLS is built to last and backed up by a 5 year warranty (registration required).

How Does ReturnLink (RLS) Work?

By utilising the new Galileo sattelite constellation ReturnLink now allows for two-way communication between the PLB and the sattelites. With previous generation PLBs a signal was sent to the sattelite but the sattelite was unable to return a signal to confirm receipt of the signal. With the new Gallileo satellites the PLB can receive a return signal from the sattelite confirming that the signal has been safetly received - a real comfort in a resue situation.

What Happens Once Activated?

FastFind ReturnLink transmits and receives multiple signals simultaneously. When activated it;

Transmits 406 MHz distress signal via the original Cospas Sarsat to global professional emergency service.
Receives GNSS coordinates from Galileo and GPS satellites and transmits with 406MHz signal to regularly update location.
Once location detection is confirmed the PLB receives Galileo RLS signal and activates blue light (after approx. 15mins) to tell the user the signal was received.
Transits 121.5 MHz Homing signal to accelerate local recovery - many lifeboats and aircraft can home in on this signal.
