ECA GROUP UNVEILS ITS LATEST RANGE OF EMERGENCY LOCATOR TRANSMITTER (ELT) SOLUTIONS

Thursday, November 05 2020
ECA GROUP'S ELITE SC, AN UPDATED VERSION OF ELITE SURVIVAL EMERGENCY LOCATOR TRANSMITTER (ELT), TO BE ETSO/TSO-C126c CERTIFIED IN THE FIRST HALF OF 2021. 

In line with new safety standards, ECA GROUP is launching ELITE SC, the new generation of ELITE Survival ELTs (manually or water activated), which will be ETSO/TSO-C126c certified in Q2-2021.

ELITE SC owns its name to this level of certification (ETSO/TSO-C126c), which will be mandatory for new programmes.

An Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) is an onboard-equipment that transmits a distress signal to a satellite in case of accident or major disturbance. This signal allows the precise localization of the aircraft. ELTs are therefore an integral component of the international satellite system for search and rescue COSPAS-SARSAT.

With more than 30.000 deliveries, ECA GROUP is the worldwide leader in the production of safety beacons for civil aviation. Today, more than 350 airlines and the major aircraft manufacturers are equipped with ECA GROUP’s innovative ELTs designs.

 


“Passenger and aircrew safety matter to us. We have therefore developed the future Survival ELT, called ELITE SC, to respond to authority requirements regarding the DO-227A,” says Marc Descamps, Director Sales & Services of ECA GROUP Aerospace division.

“We have kept all the benefits of our last ELITE model, which have been strongly requested by our customers because no other ELT on the market proposes similarly convenient functionalities. We are certain that our ELITE SC will be a success, as it is an affordable and reliable solution for airlines and aircraft manufacturers,” says Mr Descamps.


 

As pioneer of the first safety beacons in the 1980s, ECA GROUP has continued to drive innovation up to today, supporting its customers in their adaptation to standard changes and providing them with ELT solutions at the cutting edge of technology.

ECA GROUP’s new generation of safety beacons is designed to obtain the latest EASA/FAA ETSO/TSO-C142b approval letter, based on the DO-227A requirements (Minimum operational performances standard for non-rechargeable Lithium Battery).
