In a typical Cospas-Sarsat search and rescue process, a Distress Beacon signal is sent via Satellite to a Local User Terminal. A Mission Control Center validates the emergency and sends critical information to Rescue Coordination Centers. MEOSAR, the next-generation version of Cospas-Sarsat, will provide several unique features including a Return Link Service function to acknowledge receipt of the distress signal.
