Simrad SA70 is emergency equipment consisting of: SA70 SART radar transponder and Mounting rope for life rafts / life boats. The 9 GHz radar transponder type SIMRAD SA70 SART is developed by Navico to meet the rules and regulations for use on vessels and life rafts in the maritime service. SIMRAD SA70 SART meets the specifications for 9 GHz radar transponders for use in search and rescue operations at sea.

- The operating range of the SIMRAD SA70 SART is up to 30 nautical miles, depending on the height of the electronic unit and the radar height of the search and rescue unit (sea or airborne). With a radar height of 20m and the SIMRAD SA70 SART placed at 1m above sea level, the range will be up to 10 nautical miles. SIMRAD SA70 SART is buoyant, however to obtain maximum performance the transponder should be placed in a vertical position and as high up as possible in order to achieve maximum coverage. Several mounting brackets and mounting aids are available to ensure correct mounting and use of the radar transponder.
- The purpose of the SIMRAD SA70 SART is to perform a secondary alarm when search and rescue units are searching for a life raft / lifeboat in distress. The SIMRAD SA70 SART will help the units to pinpoint exactly where the distressed boat is located in a larger area. This is done with the help of the radar on the searching ship or helicopter.

- When the SIMRAD SA70 SART is interrogated (hit) by a radar signal, it will immediately start to transmit a number of sweeps covering the complete maritime 3 cm radar band. These sweeps are detected on the radar screen and are used to navigate directly towards the distressed life raft, for details on radar display see chapter 5.3. Maximum distance to a ship will normally be about 10 nm and approximately 30nm to a helicopter, dependent on the helicopters altitude. The transponder will not give any alarms further away than this.The primary alarm will usually be an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) or distress call on VHF / HF - manual or via DSC.
- The SIMRAD SA70 SART should be activated immediately after activation of the EPIRB or by instruction from the rescue control centre
