SmartFind G8 Auto EPIRB from McMurdo is the world’s first EPIRBs to include 406MHz, 121.5MHz and GNSS to accelerate search and rescue. Includes Auto-housing.

MEOSAR Compatible® for enhanced detection and location performance, the G8 range includes an industry first; a four-frequency EPIRB.

The world’s most powerful EPIRBs, driving accelerated rescue times via:

• Faster alert detection on the 406 MHz frequency through our MEOSAR compatibility
• Greater location accuracy by receiving GNSS coordinates from a wider range of satellite constellations
• The only EPIRB manufacturer that also builds and supports the Cospas-Sarsat ecosystems infrastructure, making the benefits of MEOSAR a reality

McMurdo SmartFind EPIRBs include innovation as standard with ruggedized base, easy service battery, MEOSAR compatibility and compliance with the new United States Coast Guard emergency hands free transport mandate. The additional false activation protection and multiple self-tests also offer total user confidence. Coupled with an unparalleled marine heritage, commitment to quality and a history of innovation, customers know they can trust McMurdo when their lives are at risk.

SmartFind G8 Auto-Housing

A fully protective, spring loaded enclosure, the auto-housing automatically deploys and activates the EPIRB when it is submerged between 1 - 4m. The SmartFind E8/G8 auto-housing incorporates fixing points which ensure previous* McMurdo auto-housing units can be retrofitted with minimum impact, when upgrading your vessels EPIRB.
