The McKelvey Group (TMG) sends its earnest congratulations to our friends at Earth Resources Technology, Inc (ERT) for the recent award of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking (SARSAT) contract! This program is a key component of the worldwide search and rescue infrastructure aiding people in distress across the globe. The satellites collect distress data from emergency beacons and the personnel at the U.S. Mission Control center in Suitland, Maryland process the data and coordinate with appropriate search and rescue authorities around the globe. This system has helped local authorities rescue over 43,000 people worldwide. These individuals include pilots, sailors, passengers, and outdoor enthusiasts. It is an amazing program!
This program further cements ERT’s leadership in scientific analysis and data systems. We are honored to have provided part of the effort for this award and to have ERT as a long-standing client. It has been amazing to witness ERT’s growth over the years and we look forward to seeing many more achievements to come!
