How can a SART's detection and effective range be maximized?
  • Correct Answer
    The SART should be held or mounted as high as possible and in a vertical position.
  • The SART should be placed in water immediately so it will begin transmitting.
  • Switch the SART into the "high" power position.
  • If possible, the SART should be mounted horizontally so that its signal matches that of the searching radar signal.

At what point does a SART begin transmitting?
  • It immediately begins radiating when placed in the "on" position.
  • Correct Answer
    If it has been placed in the "on" position, it will respond when it has been interrogated by a 9-GHz radar signal.
  • It must be manually activated or water activated before radiating.
  • If it has been placed in the "on" position, it will begin transmitting immediately upon detecting that it is in water.
