Monday, 03 March, 2014

Boeing will deliver an additional 2550 Combat Survivor Evader Locator radios, used in the rescue of downed pilots and other war fighters in dangerous situations, under a new US$24 million contract with the US Air Force.

A global emergency call system that enables the safe, fast and efficient recovery of war fighters in harm’s way, CSEL is used by the US Air Force, Army, Marine Corps and Navy for search and rescue operations. The system comprises handheld radios, over-the-horizon relays and other ground and user equipment.

Boeing has delivered some 55,000 CSEL radios to date. The new deliveries are scheduled for 2014 and 2015. Boeing also received separate contracts to enhance the capabilities and information security of the global CSEL base-station network.
