Outdoor & Recreation Personal Locator Beacon Solutions.

Venture with confidence using McMurdo personal safety devices.


Adventurer Rock Climbing

“Each day is a mission to experience life to its fullest. With every adventure, I learn more about my world and myself. So I take safety seriously and McMurdo is the brand I trust with my life.”


Today, hikers, kayakers, campers, recreational boaters and others who enjoy outdoor activity trust McMurdo products as a key part of their emergency preparedness efforts. Since introducing the world’s first personal locator beacon (PLB), McMurdo has introduced several innovative products that keep individuals safe whether on land, in the air or on the water. McMurdo’s AIS Man Overboard device, for example, the first of its kind in the world, was used in the high-profile rescue of Andrew Taylor in the Clipper Round the World Yacht race.

For tomorrow, we are working on the next generation of personal safety devices including second-generation beacons, intelligent wearables and tracking/monitoring systems – all with McMurdo technology at its core.

So, venture outdoors with confidence knowing that you are backed by the global leader in emergency readiness and response with over 150 years of combined experience.

McMurdo.  Trusted for Life in Outdoor & Recreation.
