To assist the RCC and SAR Teams in the conduct of the SAR mission, provide the most accurate latitude and longitude available to the FAA using en route and terminal radar sensor data near the aircraft’s last known position.
If necessary to prevent an undue delay, utilize any available method to determine the initial latitude and longitude. Follow-up as soon as possible with a formal latitude and longitude using the appropriate terminal or en route facility data extraction tools.
If available, solicit the assistance of other aircraft known to be operating near the aircraft in distress.
Forward this information to the RCC or the ARTCC as appropriate.
