In Canada, pleasure craft can use electronic visual distress signals (eVDSD) that are certified to the Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services (RTCM) standard 13200.0 instead of traditional pyrotechnic distress signals…

Characteristics of eVDSD

An electronic signal that meets the standard will have:

  • signal characteristic in the form of a 2-colour cyan (blue) and red-orange S-O-S light sequence
  • near-infrared signal so it can be detected with night vision goggles
  • an operating temperature range of -1°C to +30°C
  • a storage temperature range of -20°C to +55°C
  • an average effective intensity of at least 50 candela
  • at least 2 hours continuous operating life”
