Boeing delivers 40,000th CSEL SAR communications system

7th October 2010 - 17:43 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Boeing Company on Aug. 27 delivered the 40,000th Combat Survivor Evader Locator (CSEL) combat search and rescue communications system to the US joint services, expanding their ability to reach and rescue isolated pilots or combat personnel.

"CSEL provides US forces with a tactical advantage by serving as a global emergency-call system for downed personnel," said Michael Bates, Boeing CSEL program manager. "Rescue forces can quickly locate, authenticate and communicate with isolated personnel for urgent recovery operations."

The CSEL system uses a flexible, modular communications architecture over multiple satellite links for dependable, secure communications.

"This network-centric system combines everything downed pilots and combat forces need in one easy-to-use, multifunction radio," Bates added. "Boeing is currently working with the US Air Force on next-generation system improvements."
