Abstract This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. The United States, Canada, France, and Russia operate the Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking (COSPAS/SARSAT), a satellite system with equipment that can detect and locate ships, aircraft and individuals in distress if an emergency radio beacon is being carried. This system is used to detect digitally encoded signals in the 406.000–406.100 MHz range, coming from these emergency beacons. The 406.000–406.100 MHz beacons transmit a unique identifier, making possible the ability to combine previously collected data associated with that beacon and transmit this vital data along with the beacon’s position to the appropriate rescue coordination center. Persons buying 406.000–406.100 MHz emergency radio beacons are required to register them with NOAA prior to installation. These requirements are contained in Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations at 47 CFR 80.1061, 47 CFR 87.199 and 47 CFR 95.1402. The registration data is used to facilitate a rescue and to suppress the costly consequences of false alarms, which if unsuppressed would initiate the launch of a rescue mission and thereby deplete limited resources and possibly result in the loss of lives. This is accomplished through the use of the data provided to the rescue forces from the beacon registration database maintained by the NOAA’s United States Mission Control Center (USMCC) for Search and Rescue, to contact the distressed person(s) or alternate party via a phone call or radio broadcast. Other data provides rescuers with descriptive material of the element in distress. The registration information must be kept up-to-date. Four registration forms are used.

    This request is for extension of a currently approved information

    The United States, Canada, France, and Russia operate the Search 
and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking (COSPAS/SARSAT), a satellite system 
with equipment that can detect and locate ships, aircraft and 
individuals in distress if an emergency radio beacon is being carried. 
This system is used to detect digitally encoded signals in the 406.000-
406.100 MHz range, coming from these emergency beacons. The 406.000-
406.100 MHz beacons transmit a unique identifier, making possible the 
ability to combine previously collected data associated with that 
beacon and transmit this vital data along with the beacon's position to 
the appropriate rescue coordination center.
    Persons buying 406.000-406.100 MHz emergency radio beacons are 
required to register them with NOAA prior to installation. These 
requirements are contained in Federal Communications Commission (FCC) 
regulations at 47 CFR 80.1061, 47 CFR 87.199 and 47 CFR 95.1402.
    The registration data is used to facilitate a rescue and to 
suppress the costly consequences of false alarms, which if unsuppressed 
would initiate the launch of a rescue mission and thereby deplete

accomplished through the use of the data provided to the rescue forces 
from the beacon registration database maintained by the NOAA's United
