Litton has recently introduced two new EPIRBs that are geared toward the commercial fishing com- munity. The Model 952 Category I is a 406 MHz EPIRB that transmits the vessel's location and identity to the worldwide COSPAS/SARSAT

Satellite System initiating an im- mediate search and rescue response.

The Category I is a hydrostatically released, float-free EPIRB that au- tomatically transmits the 406 MHz distress signal when released.

The Model 952 Category I comes with a weather resistant protective housing and the entire unit can be removed from its mounting bracket for safe storage without disarming or dismantling the EPIRB. The

Model 952 is also available as a manually activated Category II406

MHz EPIRB. The Model 953 Class

B (Micro "B") is a manually-acti- vated 121.5/243 MHz EPIRB and the distress frequency can be de- tected by search and rescue aircraft and vessels and by the COSPAS/

SARSAT Satellite System. The Mi- cro "B"'s small size makes it suitable for compact stowage in life vests, life rafts and survival kits. Litton

Special Devices designs, manufac- tures and supplies Emergency Ra- dio Indicating Beacons (EPIRBs) for the marine industry. Litton now has more than 10,000 EPIRBs on board commercial and recreational vessels.
