A SART generally has a range of approximately 8 nautical miles (15 kilometres). A response is transmitted repetitively across the complete radar frequency band as each radar pulse is received.

The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an internationally agreed-upon set of safety procedures, types of equipment, and communication protocols used to increase safety and make it easier to rescue distressed ships, boats and aircraft. Specific radio carriage requirements depend upon the ship's area of operation and provides a mean of distress alerting.
