After successful operations in Sharm-El-Sheikh (Egypt) & Sotchi (Russia), GIB systems are now well known for fast black box location operations over a wide area. The GIB system is small enough to be easily shipped to the operation site. Buoys are kept drifting over the search area. After a few hours, the positions of the black boxes are calculated with a 1-metre accuracy compared with up to hundreds of meters with traditional homing equipment.
