Search and Rescue (SAR) Management System uses the application of integrated GlobalPositioning System (GPS) and Geographic Information System (GIS)technology. It is made up of a SAR tracking device, Base Station Receiver, and GIS Electronic Map.
The SAR tracking device provides the date, time, and exact location of the accident. It constantly obtains GPS data from the outside environment but transmission only happens when an emergency takes place. Since it is immensely probable that the user panics during an emergency, the SAR tracking device
GPS data are transmitted into the base station receiver. It forwards the information into and rescue. The computer has star tracking map software which displays the date, time, and the location(latitude and longitude) of the disaster. The software accepts selected GPS data. It also stores them in the database.
During the reception of the transmitted GPS data, emergency information is disseminated to registered remote stations through Short Message Sending(SMS). Mobile broadcasting situation reports are delivered periodically. Every ten minutes SMS messages are sent to different stations for
Hence, the Search and Rescue Management System that uses integrated GPS and GIStechnology is essential in mitigating SAR cases and contributes to strengthening community based emergency system by securing the welfare of the people and the community.
