It is the world’s only ELT equipped with a 406 MHz back-up antenna, which enables the ELT to transmit the 406 MHz distress signal independently from the aircraft, in case the external antenna is broken or damaged. Its embedded GPS improves location accuracy to hundreds meters while avoiding the cost of a GPS interface installation. Save long-term costs with the Integra ELT’s 10-year warranty, the longest warranty period in the industry. Trusted partners such as Airbus, Embraer, Honda Jet, Cub Crafters, Robinson Helicopters and others rely on the Kannad Integra ELT.
Yes, due to the battery, this is considered hazardous for air shipping.
No. It uses the external antenna to pick up the GPS signal that is then routed to the unit.
The remote rod antenna is only for the 406 signal. The unit has an internal GPS antenna that is its primary GPS signal, and an internal backup 406 antenna to allow it to be removed from the aircraft. For a stronger GPS signal for regular position monitoring, the unit can be connected via the optional NMEA INTEGRA e-Nav interface to RS232 GPS NAV equipment in your aircraft.
This elt does have an internal gps but if the elt is installed in a metal aircraft it will not output gps, therefore you will need an external gps source.
No. You cannot use the transponder as a GPS source in any application. You will need an actual GPS source for this.
