G2R Evo Overview

Innovation, quality and flexibility are built into the SARBE G2R Evo. The most advanced product ever to bring a new level of performance to the Personal Locator Beacon technologies.

Automatic beacon activation and antenna deployment

SARBE Personal Locator Beacons are carried by aircrew around the world as part of their essential flight equipment. To assist in the fast location of downed aircrew after an ejection has taken place, SARBE have developed a system which automatically activates the beacon and deploys the antenna into the optimum position.

By automating the activation of the beacon it ensures that even where aircrew are unconscious or injured, SAR transmissions will be initiated immediately, with no human intervention required. G2R Evo can be configured to operate with any ejection seat mechanism and the unique 90⁰ activation pull-pin ensures total flexibility when positioning the beacon on the aircrew. Our problem solving skills in this area are un-paralleled within the field of Search and Rescue Beacons.


In CSAR mode, a short, randomised burst data transmission, along with the ability to stop and restart data transmissions on demand ensures extremely low probability of interception/detection (LPI/LPD).
