The Emergency Radio Beacon provides the determination of disease location and transmission of the emergency message according to the requirements of the COSPAS/SARSAT Committee. ARB-M meets all GMDSS requirements and IMO resolution A.810(19)

- is the third generation of MUSSON epirbs
- is high guarantee of the quality, provided with the 12 years experience of the epirbs producing
- uses only 4 lithium SAFT LSH-20 batteries. The batteries can be easily replaced
- has compact dimensions in comparison with the previous models
- has integral control device for the batteries and for the presence of the transmitting signal in 121,5 Mhz and 406.025 Mhz channels
- is simple in use system

ARB-M is in production since April, 2000 and is third generation of COSPAS - SARSAT system designed by "MUSSON". In contrast to the first models ARB-M is two times smaller and supplied by only four lithium elements.

Reprogramming becomes easy (with the help of any computer) due to a new microchip for the identification code changing (MMSI protocol, marine serial protocol, radio call). The software and interface cable are available.
