The Science of Survival

Small and mighty, the ResQLink™ Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is a full-powered, GPS-enabled rescue beacon designed for anglers, pilots and back country sportsmen.

At 4.6 oz, the ResQLink™ weighs less than a couple of PowerBars®. Topping at just 3.9 inches, it's smaller than the cell phone in your pocket. 

Affordable and lightweight, the ResQLink™ is the world's smallest Personal Locator Beacon. Yet, the ResQLink™ is big on power and the operational reliability you've come to expect from all ACR products. 

Even in extreme conditions, the ResQLink™ activates easily. Just deploy the antenna and press the ON button. The ResQLink™ utilizes 3 levels of integrated signal technology - GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal and 121.5 MHz homing capability - to guide rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position. Pair the ResQLink™ PLB with your ACR EPIRB or ARTEX ELT for the perfect safety combo.

Two built-in tests allow you to routinely verify that the ResQLink™ is functioning and ready for use - with the push of a button, you can easily test internal electronics and GPS functionality.

A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues. PLBs have been proven tried and true in some of the world's most remote locations and treacherous conditions.

  • Small in size and lightweight
  • Super Bright LED Strobe
  • On Board 66 Channel GPS
  • Self-Test and GPS Test Features

Too Close for Comfort: About Half of Fracking Wells 2 to 3 km From Domestic Groundwater Systems

If you live in a city, you may take the safety of the water that you drink for granted, although recent developments in Flint may have changed your mind about that. But for 45 million Americans who drink water that comes from private wells, drawn from groundwater and unregulated by a public utility, the question of what's in that water is an even bigger unknown—a potentially dangerous one. In 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report indicating that supplies of drinking water near hydraulic-fracturing or fracking sites are more likely to be affected by contamination events. Scott Jasechko and Debra Perrone, Researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara, wanted to find out just how many privately-owned groundwater wells might be at risk.

In-Home Water Testing: A Talk With the Creator of Tap Score by SimpleWater

In the wake of various water quality crises from Flint, Michigan and Puerto Rico, there is a growing interest and demand among consumers for home water testing. Enter DIY water testing kits like Tap Score by SimpleWater . Tap Score in particular was conceived of and launched by former UC Berkeley grad student John Pujol and co-founder and CTO Julio Rodriguez. “In 2015 we began testing small and rural communities for arsenic in their water,” Pujol explains. “We found it much more frequently than we expected, and also discovered that people in these towns greatly appreciated someone telling them what was in their water and how to fix it.

Hidden Underground Nitrate Pollution Threatens Groundwater Worldwide

For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.
