The Company
Established in 1937, McMurdo leads the way in the
development and manufacture of emergency location
beacons and NAVTEX technology.
Based in Portsmouth England, McMurdo first produced
a COSPAS-SARSAT approved EPIRB in July 1989.
McMurdo further galvanised its position as the leader
in safety equipment technology in 1992 with the
release of the first GMDSS approved Search And
Rescue Transponder (SART). Since that date we have
continually led the way in the functionality and
accuracy of emergency location beacons launching a
PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) for use on land, sea or
air in 2000. Also in that year GPS technology was
introduced to both the EPIRB and the PLB.
NAVTEX technology is another area where McMurdo
has considerable expertise, developing and
manufacturing NAVTEX receivers for both SOLAS and
non-SOLAS vessels.
The McMurdo name stands for high quality products
using the latest technology. Organisations such as the
Royal Navy and the US Coastguard understand the
importance of ultra-reliable high quality equipment
which is why they have chosen McMurdo products for
their vessels and their crew.
McMurdo products are used around the world, on
land, sea and in the air, where safety is important
you will find McMurdo.

How does an EPIRB work?
An Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) or
Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is used to alert search and rescue
services in the event of an emergency. They do this by
transmitting a coded message on the 406 MHz distress
frequency. This message is relayed via satellite and earth station
to the nearest rescue co-ordination centre.
406 MHz EPIRBs and PLBs work with the Cospas-Sarsat polar
orbiting satellite system which provides true global coverage.
The system has an alert delay of typically 45 minutes dependant
on when the satellites come into view on the horizon.
The satellite can determine
the position of your
Smartfind E5 EPIRB or
Fastfind PLB to within 5km
(3 miles). The coded
message identifies the exact
vessel to which the E5 is
registered or the person the
Fastfind PLB is registered to.
This information allows the
rescue services to eliminate
false alerts and launch an
appropriate rescue.
The GPS enabled Smartfind Plus G5 406 MHz EPIRB and Fastfind
Plus PLB have built-in transmitters that will typically alert the
rescue services within 3 minutes. Smartfind Plus is capable of
providing typical positional accuracy of +/- 50 Metres and
position updates every 20 minutes, given a clear view skyward.
Both the Smartfind EPIRBs and Fastfind PLBs also have a
secondary distress transmitter. This transmits on 121.5 MHz and
is used for "homing" purposes. When the rescue services get
close, this allows them to direction find on the signal. To cater
for searches at night, the Smartfind EPIRBs have a high
brightness LED flashing light that aids final visual location.

www.mcmurdo.co.uk
Since its inception in 1982 the Cospas-Sarsat System has provided
distress alert information which has assisted in the rescue of over
18,865 persons in 5,317 distress situations. The Cospas-Sarsat
Programme assists search and rescue (SAR) activities on a
worldwide basis by providing accurate, timely, and reliable
distress alert and location data to the international community
on a non-discriminatory basis.
GPS EPIRBs
The GPS EPIRB and PLB have been designed to enhance further
the lifesaving capabilities of conventional beacons. The standard
Global Positioning System (GPS) uses an array of 27 satellites and
provides continuous positional information with a typical
accuracy of around 50m. A 406MHz EPIRB such as the Smartfind
Plus or PLB such as the Fastfind Plus has a built in GPS, when the
beacon is activated in an emergency, positional information is
incorporated into the distress message which it transmits.
This incorporation of positional information overcomes the
location problem when using geostationary satellites and can
greatly reduce the time it takes for the SAR authorities to arrive
on the scene. When speed of response and accuracy of location
are important considerations, then the GPS EPIRB offers the
best performance

Smartfind
Meeting the demands of both commercial
mariners and recreational boaters, the new
McMurdo SMARTFIND heralds the arrival of the
next generation in EPIRB technology. This
compact and stylish unit is available as a
standard 406 MHz EPIRB or, for enhanced
position location, with a built in high
accuracy GPS.
The key features are:
■ Internationally Approved
■ Non hazardous battery for safe and
easy transportation
■ Unique CARRYSAFE bracket for
safe transportation
■ High brightness LED flashing locator lights
■ Integrated 12 channel GPS (PLUS version)
■ Comprehensive diagnostic and self-test
facilities
■ Once activated, will transmit for a
minimum of 48 hours
■ 5 year warranty*
■ 5 year battery life*
The SMARTFIND Series consists of two base models;
E5 SMARTFIND is a 406 MHz EPIRB designed to operate with
the COSPAS-SARSAT international search and rescue system.
Once removed from its CARRYSAFE mounting bracket the unit
can be activated automatically by immersion in water, or
manually by following the activation instructions printed on
the unit.
The G5 SMARTFIND PLUS has all the advanced features of the
standard E5 SMARTFIND with the addition of an integral 12
channel GPS receiver. The addition of a GPS receiver to the
EPIRB ensures that the
exact position of a
casualty is relayed to
the rescue services.
This can in turn
improve the speed of
recovery by updating
the position of the
beacon at regular
intervals.
A float free automatic
housing is available
for both versions of
the SMARTFIND

McMurdo NAVTEX receivers are in widespread use by the world’s
merchant ships, navies and recreational boaters.
What is NAVTEX?
NAVTEX is a system for the broadcast and automatic reception
of maritime safety and weather information. NAVTEX provides
shipping with navigational and meteorological warnings and
urgent information through either on screen display or
automatic printouts from a dedicated receiver.
NAVTEX Coverage
NAVTEX messages are transmitted worldwide from local stations,
the number of stations grows month by month. Information
about all known NAVTEX stations can be found on our website
(www.mcmurdo.co.uk), details including name, position, range,
and operational status.
NAVTEX is a component of the IMO/IHO Worldwide Navigational
Warning Service (WWNWS) defined by the IMO. It has also been
included as an element of the Global Maritime Distress and
Safety System (GMDSS).
How does it Work?
NAVTEX transmissions are sent from localised transmitting
stations situated worldwide. The power of each transmission is
regulated so as to avoid the possibility of interference between
transmitters. Users can set their NAVTEX receivers to receive
specific message types and reject others. Messages such as
navigational and meteorological warnings and search and rescue
information are non-rejectable to ensure that ships equipped
with NAVTEX always receive the most vital information. Users
can choose to receive information from the single transmitter
that serves the sea area around their position, or from a number
of transmitters.

frequencies by providing simultaneous tri channel monitoring;
The 518 KHz English language service, 490 KHz national
language and 4209.5 KHz long range services can all be viewed
together within a single list of NAVTEX messages.
Message text is clearly displayed on a large daylight viewable
colour LCD screen. This offers paper white message presentation
and very high clarity under all light conditions thanks to the
adjustable backlight. The unit is simple to use; coloured headings
clearly identify message category types and give quick and easy
identification of the message content. The powerful automatic
sorting feature allows messages to be viewed on screen and
sorted by channel, station ID, message category or age. An
indexed message listing page allows for quick searching and
direct access to full message text.
McMurdo NAV-7 supports interface connection to Integrated
Navigation System (INS) or Electronic Chart Display and
Information Systems (ECDIS) and the connection of a printer.

NAV6 Range
The NAV6 range offers dual channel
(518kHz & 490kHz) reception as standard.
Information is presented on a large and
easy to read LCD display. Weather and
navigation warnings, in English on 518 kHz
can be received every 4 hours from
transmitters all around the world. Local
language and small craft information is also
transmitted, on 490 kHz. In addition to dual
NAVTEX channel monitoring the NAV6plus can
also display NMEA data from your GPS or instrument system. An
electronic logbook is updated at regular intervals and can also be
printed out.
NAV6A PLUS
NAV6Aplus has all the features of the NAV6plus, but has been
designed for below deck mounting with a remote antenna
connection. This enables installers to select from a range of
suitable aerial options. This provides greater flexibility for leisure

The NAV6hub allows multiple NAV6 display units to be connected
together. Any combination of up to four NAV6plus/Aplus displays
or sensors can be connected to each other, in order to share
NAVTEX messages and NMEA data. The NAV6hub provides a
buffered NMEA 0183 input and routes NMEA data sources to all
displays in the system. A NMEA Data Combiner module can also
be fitted to allow up to 4 NMEA 0183 inputs to be merged into a
single NMEA 0183 data stream. The merged NMEA data can be
made available to other external equipment
