The Next Generation of ELT
The need to accurately pin-point downed aircraft through the use of an Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) has always existed. The increasing use of both COSPAS/SARSAT and Global Positioning System (GPS) has highlighted the need for an ELT System with expanded range capabilities. The Techtest 503 ELT System offers just that; full frequency coverage including 121.5MHz, 243MHz and 406.025MHz. The optional inclusion of last known GPS co-ordinates can be input directly into the system or there is the ability to have embedded stand-alone GPS within the G Switch unit. Housed within high quality durable thermoplastic, the ELT units are through coloured yellow thermoplastic for high visibility. Unique features of the 503 Series of ELT are the ability to have full remote extended range operation, incorporating a multi-axis G Switch, together with both fixed or portable ELT function in one unit. Portable operation allows for fast, snap release of the housing, with simple removal of the transmitter unit for use as a man portable Personal Locator beacon should this be required.
