Orolia (NYSE Alternext Paris -- FR0010501015 -- ALORO) division McMurdo has been selected by a leading Northern Africa search and rescue (SAR) authority to deploy their next-generation MEOSAR
(Medium Earth Orbit Search and Rescue) satellite-aided SAR system, the company said.
They will be replaced by MEOSAR
satellites which orbit at about 20,000 kilometres above the Earth.
Many researchers have studied the ionospheric effects on LEOSAR [12-14], but there are few papers about ionospheric effects on MEOSAR
. Only Bruno and Hobbs discussed the effects on geosychronous SAR , and Huang et al.
satellite project, which will also include the construction of three ground stations, is expected to cost Canada between $100 million and $249 million, according to the defence acquisition strategy document.
system is expected to deliver improved response times for search and rescue activities and increase accuracy to locate people, ships or planes in distress.

COM DEV is also involved in the Canada's Medium Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR
) satellite project.
Orolia has been supporting the worlds leading search and rescue programs for nearly thirty years, reaching a major milestone with the worlds first operational Medium-altitude Earth Orbit Search and Rescue (MEOSAR
) system in 2011 and remaining the only company to successfully install and launch MEOSAR
systems ever since.
The Canadian government first announced MEOSAR
in 2013, awarding COM DEV International of Cambridge, Ontario an initial contract for $4.7 million for research and design work on the repeaters.
Tenders Are Invited for Upgrading Hellenic Satellite Tracking System for Rescue and Rescue Missions - Participation in the MEOSAR
system of the international COSPAS-SARSAT Program (MEOSAR
Objective: The HELIOS project aims at providing a Second Generation range of Beacons (SGB) and associated antennas designed to operate with the full capability of the new Meosar
Cospas/Sarsat (C/S) International Programme (a satellite-based Search And Rescue (SAR) distress alert detection and information distribution system), embedded in the Navigation Satellite Systems as GALILEO.
