ELT to NAV Interface
(DAI Part# 455-6500)
Artex ELT to NAV Interface is designed to be connected between the
aircraft's flight management computer (FMC) or GPS receiver and Artex's
406 MHz series of ELT's. Its function is to receive continuous position
updates from the aircraft's navigation system and translate it to the
proper format for use by the ELT. Upon activation, the ELT transmits the
latitude and longitude of the aircraft to the COSPAS/SARSAT satellite
system. Knowledge of the position information allows SAR forces to
launch an immediate mission to the last known position of the aircraft.
Use of this technology provides the following information to
1) Type of aircraft
3) Emergency contact(s)
4) Country code
5) Serial number of ELT
6) ELT manufacturer
7) Latitude/longitude position
Another advanced feature of the interface is an ability to custom program
the ELT to the 24-bit address assigned to commercial aircraft and used
by the TCAS system. This is extremely useful for fleet operators who may
find it necessary to change ELTs in aircraft for maintenance purposes
because it eliminates the need to reprogram the ELT every time it is moved.
The Artex ELT to NAV interface works with 28V aircraft systems only.
