SARP-3 receives and processes emergency signals from aircraft and ships in distress. It determines the name, frequency and time of the signal. These data are then fed into the SARR (Search And Rescue Repeater) instrument (also on board MetOp) for immediate transmission to SARSAT (Search and Rescue Satellite) distress terminals on the ground.
