GTA Heliograph and Tracking Tool
The Ground To Air (GTA) National Tracking School (NTS) Heliograph and Tracking Tool
As with all our products in the The Tracking Shop range, we promote quality and integrity and our GTA Heliograph is no exception. Research has proven that the best and quickest way of rescue communication with passing vessels and aircraft in genuine situations is the use of light reflection by heliograph. Whether by natural sunlight or unnatural reflective light, our NTS GTA heliograph was designed to help save lives, as well as being a useful addition for people using the outdoors. Indeed we believe that everyone using the outdoors, be it recreational, hobby or professionally should own at least one NTS GTA heliograph and should know how to use it.
DetailsThis sturdy hand polished reflective metal signalling device is manufactured in three components by Scorpion knives of Sheffield UK. These components are a two sided signalling polished mirror and ruler, the smaller sighting implement (used for sighting rescuers) and an appropriate length of strong cord. The GTA signalling tool is also supplied with a brief instructional document. They are practically designed at normal credit card size for storage and have useful smaller measurement markings. The mirror and sighting tool both have holes for alignment and are attached by the cord. As with all our products they are manufactured from substantive quality steel and all are rigorously tested in the field. The NTS GTA signalling tool are easily adapted into other useful outdoor tools, such as tracking indicators or adapted into a cutting tool by sharpening an edge. The signalling tool can also be adapted for use with other ground to air signalling methods and is recommended as an addition to a rescue or substantial survival pack. They are also supplied as part of our essential adventures kit.
