The ODEO Distress Flare as the next generation of Electronic Visual Distress Signal Device (eVDSD). As the world starts to embrace LED technology in place of traditional pyrotechnic flares Daniamant have built on the ground breaking ODEO Flare design and improved the product once more. New standards and regulations are still being discussed at the USCG and RTCM; these will result in an alternative standard to replace pyrotechnics.
Comes with a simple activation, built SoS signal and user replaceable batteries. An optional waterproof neoprene bag is available for storage and includes fixing points for attaching to your equipment or pfd.
Whilst always considered for marine use, the Odeo Distress LED Flare's lightweight and safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. The compact size makes the ODEO Distress ideal for mountaineering, skiing, kayaking, expeditions etc. Any activity that can benefit from the added safety and security of carrying a distress flare, without the unwanted dangers of heat and fire risk. The ODEO Distress small size and waterproof rating IP68 (50m) also makes it an ideal safety device for divers.
