Mobit Telecom Ltd. (Mobit) - Coordinator

Mobit Telecom, with an R&D team obtaining tens of years of accumulated experience in wireless connectivity, satellite communications, radio navigation, RF and antennas, developed the world’s first satellite Personal Location Beacon (PLB) in form of a wrist watch – SAT406. This development was possible through some innovative patents. Mobit’s goal is to make Search & Rescue (SAR) beacons popular devices, affordable and usable by every mariner, aviator, and outdoor enthusiast.

Mobit’s team is comprised of experienced professionals, covering both technological and operational aspects of SAR. The leading R&D people are: CEO Daniel Katz, CTO and s/w architect Dr. Ohad Barak, Antenna designer Prof. Ely Levine, RF designer Miki Reznik.

Daniel Keren, partner in Mobit, provides a unique contribution to Mobit’s activities, regarding operational and user aspects of SAR services and products. Daniel Keren is one of Israel’s leading extreme sportsmen, participated in many expeditions around the world, including Antarctica, the North Pole, Mount Everest and the Sahara desert.

Amit Waener, ex-commander of Israel’s national Search and Rescue unit, is for many years advising to Mobit on operational aspects of SAR.

Thales Alenia Space (TAS)

Thales Alenia Space is the European leader in satellite systems and a major player in orbital infrastructures. Thales Alenia Space is a joint venture between Thales (67%) and Finmeccanica (33%). Thales Alenia Space and Telespazio embody the two groups’ “Space Alliance”.

Thales Alenia Space sets the global standard in solutions for space telecom, radar and optical Earth observation, defence and security, navigation and science. The company, which achieved revenues of Euro 2 billion in 2013, has a total of 7,200 employees located in 11 industrial sites in France, Italy, Spain, Belgium and Germany. Thales Alenia Space is at the heart of the most high-performance satellite technologies in both civil and defense sectors.

Thales Alenia Space is prime contractor for EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System), which was delivered to ESA mid-2005 and is now operational. Thales Alenia Space defined the overall architecture of the Galileo system on behalf of the European Union and the satellite architecture for ESA. Thales Alenia Space has been a driving partner in Galileo since the outset, in charge of the ground segment as well as the satellite integration and providing critical equipment and subsystems (IOV phase).

Thales Alenia Space is involved in the Cospas Sarsat Search and rescue system since several decades.  Thales teams have developed all the SARP (Search And Rescue Payload) instruments on-board SARSAT satellites (LEOSAR), in CNES (French Space Agency) contracts, which highlight a long involvement in Search-And-Rescue. In the frame of GALILEO, Thales Alenia Space contributes to the development of the SAR capability of GALILEO.

GeoNumerics S.L. (GN)

GeoNumerics (Barcelona, Spain, since 2002) is a small team with a long experience dedicated to geomatics. Its mission is to develop state-of-the-art geomatic technology. GN provides consultancy services, markets software components and conducts research-and-development (R&D) projects. GN is an intensive R&D company.

A new feature of the SAT406M PLB will be its capacity to monitor and communicate (to the rescue crews) the physiological status of the PLB wearer. It is expected that this information will improve and facilitate the rescue operations. The role of GeoNumerics is to design algorithms that transform sensor readings in estimates of physiological status.
