Abstract
The definition of what data is transferred from the SARSAT ground tracking station to operational search and rescue users influences how well the users can action beacon alert data. Based on an evaluation of operational search and rescue incident data collected during the SARSAT Demonstration and Evaluation, categorization and accuracy studies described herein indicate that methodologies can be developed which will significantly improve the operational actioning of SARSAT generated beacon alert data. The results of these studies are presented and recommended approaches to the handling of SARSAT data are given.
