SUMMARY COSPAS-SARSAT is the international programme that provides both the Search and Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking (SARSAT) distress beacon detectionsystem and coordinates Search and Rescue (SAR) organizations that assistpersons in distress.The SARSAT system uses both GeosynchronousEarth Orbit (GEO) satellites and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. COSPAS-SARSAT is augmenting its programme with Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites equipped with Search and Rescue repeaters. This augmentedsystem is called Medium Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR). The current Canadian SARSAT system receives and processes distress beacon signals from all available LEO and GEO satellites at their respective Local User Terminals (LUTs). Alert data is transmitted to the Canadian Mission Control Centre (CMCC) servers located in Trenton, Ontario. CMCC is a fully redundant facility with a backupsite in Belleville, Ontario. Both sites are identical and one is always staffed on a 24 hours a day, 7 daysaweek (24/7) basis, 365 days a year. TheDepartment of National Defence has been mandated to augment itsSARSAT Ground Segment (GS) system to include MEO-capable ground stations, allowing Canada to meet its obligations under the International COSPAS-SARSAT Programme Agreement (ICSPA). Theobjectives of the resultant MEOSAR Ground Segment Phase II project are: 1 - the design, build and commissioning of two Medium Earth Orbit Local User Terminals (MEOLUTs) withthe capability to provide coverage ofall of Canada’s Search and Rescue Area of Responsibility (SAR AOR), and integrate the MEOLUTs into theexisting OperationalCanadian Search and Rescue satellite infrastructure to provide a fully-operational system thatwill provide accurate and timelylocation of alert beacons to the Canadian Mission Control Centre (CMCC);and 2 - to deliver In-Service Support (ISS) that will allow the management, control and maintenance of the above while maintaining full operationalcompliance with COSPAS-SARSAT andnational specifications. The period of the Contract is from date of contract to a maximum of three years to the successfulcommissioning and acceptance of both MEOLUTs, plus five years from date of authorization of In-Service Support, with an option to extend for an additional 5 years. 2.
