Thursday, August 23, 2012

General Dynamics-built Rescue 21 Search and Rescue System - Sector Buffalo - Formally Accepted by the U.S. Coast Guard.


The U.S. Coast Guard today formally accepted the General Dynamics C4 Systems-built Rescue 21 search and rescue communications system now serving Sector Buffalo, New York.  The live-saving Rescue 21 system uses advanced direction-finding technologies and digital communications, enabling Coast Guard personnel to respond rapidly and efficiently to calls from distressed mariners out to at least 20 nautical miles from shore.  It also enables greater effectiveness in responding to security and maritime environmental threats. 

 

Rescue 21 also delivers improved information sharing and interoperability with users of the Department of Homeland Security’s wide-area network OneNet initiative, as well as other federal, state and local first responders. By enhancing inter-agency cooperation, the Coast Guard is more effective in accomplishing their various homeland security missions.  Rescue 21 towers and command centers are also designed to accommodate additional sensors and command and control equipment, which will deliver new and cost-effective capabilities to the Coast Guard’s overarching mission.

 

General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE:  GD), is the prime contractor for Rescue 21. Rescue 21 monitors more than 41,800 miles of U.S. coastline. For a map of the national Rescue 21 system, visit www.gdc4s.com/rescue21.
