Personnel Recovery Upgrades for Military
BriarTek - which are miniature radios that transmit a water-activated alarm when a sailor falls off a ship. The Air Force is upgrading its "Combat Survivor Evader Locator (CSEL)" with a contract with Boeing. When activated by the Isolated Person (IP) the CSEL handheld radio transmits the GPS location and identification. The Army also issues and trains selected personnel in the use of the CSEL. Learn more about these two projects in "Pentagon Boost Ability to Rescue Men Overboard or Behind Enemy Lines", Time Swampland, January 9, 2014. (photo by SSgt Eric Harris, Nov 17, 2012).
