Fixed wing search and rescue

Cobham Aviation Services utilises highly-modified Challenger jets to provide a turn-key search and rescue capability to the Australian Safety Maritime Authority (AMSA). These jets contain some of the most sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology ever to be integrated onto a civil search and rescue platform. This technology enables AMSA's search and rescue offers to be virtual crew members with eyes and ears at the scene as events unfold.

AMSA is responsible for the provision of SAR in Australia and Australia's SAR zone encompasses more than 10% of the earth's surface. AMSA utilises aircraft based in strategic locations across Australia to perform SAR tasks such as searching for missing people, locating activated distress beacons, providing communications support at an incident and dropping survival equipment to people in distress.
