The ultimate diver rescue system
ENOS, the divers' best friend
Despite all precautions, strong currents can still surprise divers and sweep them away into the ocean. An extremely dangerous situation!
This often results in large-scale search operations that do not always end successfully, as drifting divers are just "tiny drops in the ocean".
The ENOS electronic location and rescue system provides crucial assistance: it is the world's first satellite-based GPS rescue system dedicated to divers, supporting the search for missing divers on the surface. ENOS is reliable and high-performing worldwide.
Electronic Rescue and Location System
The ENOS system consists of 2 units supported by GPS:
- The ENOS receiver on board the dive boat
- The ENOS beacons that divers are equipped with during the dive
The ENOS ERX Receiver
Depending on the dive center's needs, the ENOS receiver is available in several versions:
- Control screen permanently installed at the command post with a remote antenna, fixed installation (ERX-P / ERX-S).
- Mobile device in a watertight Pelican case for easy transport. This option is particularly suitable for rigid-hulled inflatable boats (ERX-BT-I/ERX-BT-O/ERX-I/O-ERX).
The ENOS ETX Beacon
Easy to handle, even in stressful situations: simply turn the switch to activate the beacon. Learn more about the beacon
ENOS System Operation Principle
- The ENOS receiver is placed on the dive boat. Its GPS position [A] is determined through GPS satellites.
- Once on the surface, divers activate their ENOS beacons, which transmit a first alert to the ENOS receiver on the boat. The crew is immediately informed of the emergency situation. Then, the ENOS beacon automatically determines its GPS position [B].
- As soon as the ENOS beacon has evaluated its GPS position [B], it automatically transmits the data to the ENOS receiver through an independent radio frequency (UHF).
Using its own GPS position [A] and the received GPS position [B] from the beacon, the ENOS receiver then determines the exact distance and direction between the boat and the distressed diver.
These data are clearly and simply displayed on the ENOS receiver's screen.

Location, ENOS on the Screen
Once activated, the ENOS beacon transmits a first alert to the boat, quickly informing the crew about the distressed divers:
- A high-frequency alarm is audible
- A red window appears on the screen
This alarm message box remains active until the crew confirms its reception.
When the ENOS receiver receives GPS data from the ENOS beacon, it displays them on the screen with a simple graphical representation:
The cross in the center of the circle represents the boat's position.
The arrow at the top of the circle indicates the boat's heading.
Numbers 1 and 2 within the circle show the divers' positions relative to the boat.
The radius of the circle automatically adjusts based on the farthest emergency signal.
On the right side of the graphical representation (circle), essential data necessary for the rescue operation are displayed:
- The number of distress calls received (Count)
- The elapsed time since the first call (Time)
- The distance
- The divers' positions
- The date, local time, position data, boat speed, and heading are displayed in the upper right corner of the screen
- The battery symbol indicates the battery charge status
- The broken green bars indicate the number of received GPS satellite signals, with one bar per satellite
Depending on the ambient lighting conditions, the screen's contrast colors can be adjusted according to user preferences. Depending on the local lighting conditions, the screen colors can be individually adjusted: Blue/White, Black/White, White/Black.
ENOS: A Unique Rescue System in the World, Finding the Tiny Drop in the Ocean
No more searching for missing divers! Thanks to the precise data displayed on the ENOS receiver's screen, the crew always knows the location of the drifting divers.
Each ENOS receiver receives all alerts from all ENOS beacons within their reception range, even if they belong to divers from other boats.
Each beacon can be customized.
"External" alerts are also presented with all necessary data for a quick rescue, but without the diver's name = without personalization.
In the figure above, Diver #2 belongs to another boat.
ENOS is the only dedicated diver rescue system worldwide that can receive, evaluate, and display multiple alerts simultaneously.
ENOS: The Key to Quick Rescue
Even in stressful situations, the ENOS receiver's screen clearly shows the drifting diver's position in a highly understandable manner.
For a swift rescue operation!
The graph can be displayed in two versions:
1. Relative Diagram
The distance and heading between the boat and the diver are displayed on the screen (Figure 1).
2. GPS Position
The screen displays the precise GPS coordinates of the distressed diver (Figure 2).
If multiple divers are in distress and activate their ENOS beacons, the ENOS receiver is capable of evaluating and displaying all received alerts simultaneously.
The ENOS receiver: Extraordinary performance
The graphical display on the ENOS receiver's screen is easy to understand. The display conversion and the intuitive and user-friendly menu of the ENOS receiver are programmed in English and German.
This ensures optimal presentation of all rescue data and perfect graphical display.
The ENOS receiver receives, evaluates, and displays multiple alerts simultaneously detected within its reception range.
