The article features Combat Search and Rescue (Csar) radios dedicated to tune to specific frequencies for fast, efficient and covert rescue for downed pilots or compromised special forces units. It underlines the effectiveness of such devices when the U.S. Military deployed such assets for use in the March 2011 tsunami that devastated Japan. It talks about its development since the collaboration by countries including Russia, U.S. and France for Search And Rescue Satellite Aided Tracking (Sarsat) system in 1979 for humanitarian search and rescue.
