Techno-Sciences, which McMurdo Group recently acquired, said it was selected by the governments of Cyprus, Brunei and Argentina, as well as NASA in the United States, to deploy its search-and-rescue network infrastructure.

The company is also being asked to provide its next-generation Medium Earth Orbit Search and Rescue systems.

The contracts earned the company more than $6 million.

The contracts include the deployment of a six-channel MEOSAR system in South America, a two-channel MEOSAR extension in the United States and rescue coordination center software for a European and Asian SAR authority.

The contracts, some of which include maintenance, are expected to be completed during the next one to five years, depending on the customer.

“McMurdo Group has established itself as the leader in MEOSAR next-generation search-and-rescue systems with key milestone wins in critical search-and-rescue regions of the world,” Orolia and McMurdo Group CEO Jean-Yves Courtois said in a statement. “We are excited to work with the governmental bodies and rescue authorities of these countries to provide advanced SAR solutions that will expedite the rescue process and save more lives,” he added.

In a typical search-and-rescue scenario a distress beacon signal is relayed via satellite to mission control centers and rescue coordination centers for eventual rescue team deployment. McMurdo Group provides the satellite ground stations and both mission control center and rescue coordination center hardware and software solutions.
