In 1970 Jotron developed and installed the world's first Distress Radio Beacon on board a ship and since this time tens of thousands of Tron EPIRBs have been installed onboard a vast array of ships worldwide.
Today Jotron is still considered to be a world leading manufacturer at the forefront of technology of high quality EPIRBs that conform to current international regulations to meet the demands of the commercial, marine, fishing, offshore and leisure industries.

The JQE-103 is a float-free compact type EPRIB designed to transmit the 406MHz emergency signal and the 121.5MHz homing signal in accordance with IMO/CCIR and COSPAS/SARSAT regulations. This equipment must be fitted to comply with IMO SOLAS regulations.
The 406MHz satellite EPIRB, thrown into the sea from a vessel or automatically released from the bracket in distress, automatically emits a 406Mhz emergency signal, which the COSPAS/SARSAT satellite receives and relays to a Local User's Terminal(LUT) on 1.5GHz. The LUT decodes the signal information including the location of the EPIRB and transmits it to a Rescue Co-ordination Centre(RCC) for quick start of SAR operations by aircraft and vessels.
