- In the event of an SOS situation at sea the user would activate the SART
- It would remain in standby mode until an X Band Radar comes within the vicinity
- When this happens the device will send a series of pulses which will be displayed on the vessels radar system as a vessel in distress - it will transmit for a minimum of 12 hours
