Handheld Iridium Beacon Locator

Reduce recovery times with the Hermes beacon locator that receives the GPS locations of your beacons directly to the handheld device. When cell coverage and internet cannot be trusted at sea, the Hermes can guarantee it will receive the Iridium messages to locate your assets. Along with the GPS locations, the Hermes also displays range and bearing.

Iridium location messages from up to 10 Xeos beacons can be received by your handheld Hermes and pushed to shipboard charting systems via NMEA-0183, greatly simplifying the process of locating valuable marine assets for recovery.
