Search and Rescue Avionics
Cubic’s Personnel Locator System (PLS) is the standard combat search-and-rescue system used by U.S. and NATO forces to pinpoint the location of downed pilots from the air. PLS interfaces with all American-deployed combat survival radios and with standard civil emergency distress beacons. It provides secure, encrypted communications between rescue forces and isolated personnel during civil and combat rescue missions. The system is primarily installed on rotary-wing aircraft used for personnel recovery missions, and can be adapted for select fixed-wing aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.
