- Selectable Flash Signatures
- Distinguish you from other operatives or unfriendlies in the field by encoding a unique flash rate and repeat cycle via the two programming pins. The unique flash signature will be stored in the Pegasus 2 memory even if the battery is removed. A fixed flash signature and an SOS distress signature are pre-programmed into the beacon's permanent memory, giving operators three options for signal identification.
- Optional Waterproofing
- Use the Poseidon Mounting Clip to create a water tight casing for the Pegasus 2 and battery assembly. Without the Poseidon case, the beacon will continue to operate in water until the battery contacts fail from electrolytic corrosion.
