Eurocopter and aviation beacon specialist Kannad are introducing a “new-generation” emergency locator transmitter (ELT) that features antenna redundancy. The jointly developed “emergency distress beacon” for helicopters, called Integra, uses a GPS and an integrated antenna. If the external antenna is broken, the Integra beacon’s integrated antenna automatically takes over.
