For a speedy rescue!

In spite of all precautions, strong currents can still sweep divers into open waters. This results in large-scale search operations which do not always end successfully - since drifting divers are just "tiny drops in the ocean".

Here, the Electronic Rescue and Locating System ENOS® offers substantial help. It is the first GPS satellite based rescue system that supports the search for divers missing on the surface.

Special features:

  • ENOS®-System operates on its own
  • ENOS® is independent of support from coast guards and MRCC, international Maritime Rescue Coordination Centres ENOS® was developed to improve safety, enable a speedy rescue and eliminate the need and high costs of large-scale rescue operations.
  1. the ENOS®-Transmitters, carried by the divers during the dive
  2. and the ENOS®-Receiver, aboard the dive boat.

The ENOS®-System consists of two components:

The Receiver is available in a portable case or permanently installed on the command bridge.

HOW ENOS® works:

  1. The ENOS®-Receiver determines its position (A) through GPS and is then ready to receive any emergency calls from the ENOS®-Transmitters.
  2. The Transmitter, activated by a diver in case of emergency, determines its position (B) through GPS and
  3. relays this GPS data directly to the ENOS®-Receiver via radio (f).
  4. Using the positions (A) and (B) the Receiver then determines the exact location of the missing diver(s) and displays this clearly on its screen.
