A Lifeline for Isolated Personnel

For more than 30 years, General Dynamics’ Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) radios have provided a reliable lifeline to ensure that isolated military personnel can be located with confidence during search and rescue missions. In a search and rescue operation, time is of the essence, and luck is not a strategy.

When a crewmember activates one of our radios, they can be confident help is on the way. With more than 36,000 radios delivered to 36 countries, our radios provide a powerful, global, cost-effective solution for combat search and rescue for the military, paramilitary, law enforcement and government agencies.
