Outerlink contracts with North Memorial ( MN )
The OuterLink system's unique ability to provide 30-second position reporting, three-second Mayday alerts, and exact trip mileage reports were key factors that led North Air Care [ Brooklyn Center] to select the OuterLink System.
While the entire fleet is monitored from a central location, individual satellite bases can also monitor the location of their particular aircraft.
"Our decision was based on several factors but paramount was the ability of the system to interface with our existing CAD system," said Joe Glaccum of North Memorial Ambulance Service. "
The OuterLink system includes the satcom data terminal and low-profile antennas installed on each aircraft together with the CommTrack suite of PC software tools that enables flight management personnel to visually track and display real-time and historical information about all aircraft under their control. The software incorporates a comprehensive map database that allows dispatchers to pan and zoom into whatever level of topographic detail is relevant to their tracking needs. It also provides the capability to display weather information on these maps to provide up-to-the-minute advisories to flight-following dispatchers.
Kevin O'Brien, OuterLink's VP of Operations said, "This program is currently being used by several hospitals and they all report that the increased revenue it provides will enable them to recover their initial investment in their OuterLink system in less than one year."
Based in Lowell, MA, OuterLink, a Digital Angel subsidiary, provides satellite-based mobile asset tracking and data messaging systems. Used to manage the deployment of aircraft and land vehicles, these systems provide real-time location reporting, secure bi-directional data communication and comprehensive asset management software. They enable ground personnel to track the minute-by-minute movement of mobile assets, monitor on-board sensors and conduct bi-directional messaging with aircraft pilots and ground vehicle operators.

McMurdo FAST FIND PLB Personal Locator Beacon
please visit: www.fastfindplb.com/.
"...FAST FIND, the new range of personal locator beacons produced by its McMurdo unit
[ sold throughout the U.S., Canada, U.K., New Zealand and Australia ]
" ..the big factor is the size and affordability of the unit, which puts it roughly in the same class as a mobile phone, plus it works in the middle of nowhere where the phone doesn't.
" The PLB is registered to search and rescue authorities by the user, so it's a piece of personal equipment, and if it has to be activated in an emergency, authorities can quickly identify the signal.
[ McMurdo is ] A division of Digital Angel's Signature Industries subsidiary, based in the United Kingdom, McMurdo is a world leading producer of Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs), Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs), Search and Rescue Transponders (SARTs), VHF Radios and NAVTEX

The signal is passed to regional search and rescue authorities who can rapidly get to the scene.
Furthermore, beginning in February 2009, only 406 MHz PLBs will be detected by the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system,
Easily user-replaceable battery packs have a five-year storage life. FASTFIND MAX G's integral 12-channel GPS navigation receiver gives a typical positional accuracy of +/- 62 meters and new position updates every 20 minutes, significantly reducing the normal search area down from a 28-square nautical mile area, with a clear view skyward. It also has a visual indication of GPS position acquisition

McMurdo International Waters Rescue System --MOB " man overboard"
McMurdo is an IRIDIUM satellite system manufacturing partner and has worked closely with IRIDIUM to arrive at a life-saving technical solution for the man overboard problem
MOB Guardian is firstly a GPS location system that is mounted in the wheelhouse of a fishing boat and sends regular location information via the IRIDIUM satellite system to the RNLI Operations Centre (at Poole, Dorset, England).
The fisherman carries a small radio unit on his person [ Ed: future smart card ? ] when at sea and if he goes overboard, an alarm is activated on board and shortly after a distress signal is activated and transmitted through the IRIDIUM satellite system to the RNLI Operations Centre (at Poole, Dorset, England) with a GPS position of the MOB. ... 24-hour on-call service covering search & rescue requirements up to 100 nautical miles out from the coastline.
Digital Angel buys McMurdo ( 60 outlets ) For Commercial use too
Simply put, we believe our strategic acquisition of McMurdo is the perfect complement to our SARBE business. Its network of approximately 60 outlets will significantly broaden our emergency location beacon product offering to serve the military and commercial maritime sectors and provide stability to our revenue base. As we stated previously, we expect the McMurdo acquisition to add at least $8-9 million of additional revenue for the remainder of 2007. More importantly, we believe McMurdo's steady stream of business will generate more predictable profits in the SARBE business on a go-forward basis."
Currently, McMurdo buys the circuit boards, antennas, and batteries used in their location beacons. However, by utilizing our established manufacturing capabilities at our Signature Industries operations in the U.K., we will manufacture those components, and expect to have a more profitable product," continued McGrath ( Ed: also more specified )
Satellite radios that operate on 121.5 and 243Mhz frequencies will be rendered obsolete when the Cospas-Sarsat satellite rescue system is changed to monitor only 406MHz radio frequency in 2009. Cospas-Sarsat is the international satellite system operator that detects activated search and rescue beacons and approves all rescue beacon systems.
DA to aquire McMurdo marine beacons
Digital Angel Corp. has agreed to acquire McMurdo, a British maker of emergency marine beacons, for at least $6.2 million. The deal, under which Digital Angel's London subsidiary Signature Industries will buy McMurdo from the Chemring Group, was announced Thursday.
South St. Paul-based Digital Angel (Amex: DOC) makes radio-frequency identifcation tags for the agriculture sector and other uses;
it's also a maker of GPS technology used to help find downed pilots or lost mariners.
In a statement announcing the purchase, Digital Angel noted that changes to satellite monitoring systems mean that much of the equipment currently in service will require replacement by early 2009. http://www.bizjournals.com/losangeles/othercities/twincities/stories/2006/12/11/daily44.html

Applied Digital Solutions deals with the subdermal ID for humans.
The other company---Digital Angel---everyone thinks of as dealing with subdermal ID for pets.
But more and more Digital Angel is in the business of SENSORS which has a lot of ways of changing our lives to total surveillance, monitoring and tracking.
Both companys--ads and doc -- are headed towards the 666 System at break-neck speed.
And both companies move more and more into the Food business. The more they control the Food Industry, the more they control our stomachs and eating.... and then the more they can CAUSE people to take the MOB. ( not force)
The following news item shows how Digital Angel is thoroughly entrenched in the Food Business, particularly as it relates to the American Government and the United Nations (global intents).

Economically, what was at stake was a projected $100 billion marketplace for Digital Angel. Critics have claimed this figure is impossible unless universal implantation mandated by government was being considered. Conservative estimates for use in the U.S. were said to be $70 billion, characterized as 26 potential vertical markets. A company spokesman, who asked not to be named, revealed that the $70 billion projection was provided by McKinsey & Co. management consultants. Randy Geissler, CEO of Digital Angel.net Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary, said that strong alliances were key to Digital Angel's success, and that the company's close partnerships with Raytheon-Hughes, the U.S. Department of Energy and pharmaceutical giants like "Schering-Plough" meant that the company was well-positioned for success.
Fascism = government and
business working together
At the end of WWII, General Eisenhower, head of the Allied Forces in Europe, came back to America from his "minor campaign," became President, and in his presidential Farewell Address, in January 1961, he warned us about the "Military-Industrial Complex." That term he coined in his speech has become fairly well known around the world, and I suppose everyone has heard of it.
" By dictionary definition, a cooperative union of business (especially the defense manufacturing industry)
and the government is called "fascism."
Educational Research-Complex ...... Government and Universities working hand-in-hand
The primary source of funding for the Educational-Research Complex is large private Foundations with huge resources, such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Foundation and others. They provide billions of dollars as seed money to start university research projects. And then the universities seek government grant funding (the Educational-Research Complex) for continuing and enlarging those projects at the university lab facilities. The Educational-Research Complex represents the largest lobby and control group in Washington. That is exactly the danger President Eisenhower warned about forty years ago.
The Educational-Research Complex has become so large it is now international. The foundations and universities also seek funding from international groups such as the United Nations. Often the names of the chairmen and directors of the large university laboratories and the chairmen of organizations like WHO, UNICEF and CARE seem to rotate like a game of international musical chairs. The international projects, on the surface, appear to be benign and are concerned with health, food and education in the many nations of the world. But in fact, on closer examination, the projects are focused on eugenics, controlled famine, population control and genocide.
Thus, many people have become concerned about
