C-1002 Two Color Distress Light Flag & Whistle

The Sirius Signal model C-1002 SOS eVDSD (electronic visual distress signal device) is the first product to be engineered to the new RTCM standard 13200.0 — accepted as equivalent to the current SOS light listed in 46 CFR 161.013 (the single color white SOS). 

C-1002-600px

The Sirius Signal C-1002 two-color electronic Visual Distress Device (eVDSD) is the world’s first marine safety electronic flare to meet the new USCG safety standard. The C-1002 is five times brighter than any approved device on the market — incorporating 13 LEDs. 

With high-power LEDs the C-1002 generates the equivalent of 20-watt light in heat which, through a clever patented heat sink design keeps things cool and running at peak efficiency. The patented optic displays the proper intensity and hemispherical distribution of light required by the specification.

Two distinct visible colors (orange-red/ cyan) offer increased conspicuity against scattered white background light. A third color infrared (not visible to the naked eye) is included for SAR (search and rescue aircraft) above with high tech night vision goggles. It is so precise in its required timing sequence, it is planned that a satellite in space will be able to pick up the location of a boat.

Bluetooth Enabled with an SOS App

The Sirius Signal C-1002 model is Bluetooth-enabled with advanced connectivity and a smart boat-safe phone app. Features include a float plan, “Check Me” feature and SOS function. All send location coordinates via LTE to anyone you choose. The in-app looped speech synthesis first aid guide feature is a first! Boaters can quickly access and begin first aid treatment by selecting an injured body graphic on their mobile device screen (using the Sirius app) and listening.

C-1003 SOS Distress Light, Flag & Whistle

lifestyle3

Our new and improved eVDSD SOS C-1003 Beacon is redesigned from our Original Alternative to Pyrotechnic Flares, the wildly successful model C-1001 (discontinued).

Powered by a high-performance, programmable microprocessor controlling an SOS flash pattern signal flashed through an even brighter and more potent LED, our Sirius Signal SOS C-1003 model is both family-safe and easy to use. Our optical design provides an omnidirectional light display for surface rescue craft and a vertical beam visible to aircraft flying overhead. Improved flotation now even higher off the water, is visible up to 10 nautical miles, and the SOS C-1003’s beam lasts for hours compared to the minutes-long lifespan of traditional pyrotechnic distress.

Fulfills carriage of all Coast Guard Compliant Visual Distress Signal (VDS) requirements (46 CFR 175.130) for recreational marine vessels 16 FT AND OVER signals when combined with our included Distress Flag. (A quality marine whistle is included to fulfill USCG audible signal requirements.)
