For more than 25 years, Leonardo DRS AN/URT-26 and AN/URT-43 Deployable Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) have been providing search-and-rescue capabilities for P-3 crews around the world.
The ELB3000F upgrades these systems to include a GPS encoding interface that transmits the aircraft’s latitude and longitude.
The EAS3000F can also include a cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder that gather audio and flight data inputs. Additional health and usage monitoring functions can also be incorporated.
With world-leading technology designed to survive helicopter accidents, the CPI-406 ELT system exceeds international ELT requirements.
The crash-survivable beacon airfoil unit (BAU) separates from the aircraft at the onset of an incident, escaping the devastating effects of the downing and emitting a distress signal linked to the aircraft. With an additional encoding option, the BAU can transmit last-known latitude and longitude in order to aid in search and rescue. It floats indefinitely, helping crew survive the crash.
The CPI-406 includes deployable cockpit voice and flight data recorders, emergency locator transmitters and aircraft monitoring systems.
